November 13, 2020 - Pavillon à la Maison: Taste the Stars at Home
For all those who lack the muse or simply the time to spend hours in their kitchen, however, would like to treat their loved ones with a culinary symphony, the team at our 2 Michelin star restaurant Pavillon came up with a simple solution.
October 2020 - The Truffle Hunt is on!
With the winds of autumn, the season’s various delights are finding their way into the Pavillon kitchen. Introducing the new purely vegetarian 9-course menu "Potager", the Pavillon kitchen team quite literally wants to plant an eye-catching and tasty garden on the guests’ plates. "Potager", translating to “vegetable garden”, is the Pavillon kitchen's light and colourful alternative to its popular Chef’s menu "Harmony".
Artfully creating this menu, the Pavillon team required the help from some very skilled locals: truffle dogs combed the woods around Zurich in search of the fine mushrooms buried beneath the ground.
"Cooked autumn truffle tastes more aromatic than white truffle, so we decided to put a dish with this delicacy on our menu for the first time. There is a great demand for locally sourced ingredients among our guests, so we liaised with some of our personal contacts to find the best product to enhance our new dishes. We are very pleased that now get to offer our guests local autumn truffles of the best quality," says Pavillon Sous Chef Maximilian Müller. Last week, he joined the truffle hunt themselves, accompanied by a camera team. You will soon get to see for yourself how successful the hunt went, and you will follow the exciting journey of the autumn truffle from the dark grounds in the outskirts of Zurich onto the shiny plates of our restaurant’s guests.
