With gardens blooming and taste buds ready for a change after the heavy fare of winter menus, Veggie Week is returning to Geneva, with the city’s top hotel-restaurant chefs whipping up some stunning new dishes to impress your palate.
Aimed at vegetarians, vegans and yes, meat eaters, too, this two-week event runs from the 4th — 17th of June and serves up a feast for the eyes and the stomach by means of the freshest produce available from local kitchen gardens.
Initiated last year by top chefs of the city’s 5-star hotel-restaurants, 67 new gastronomic creations impressed food lovers of all culinary persuasions. This year, 12 chefs carry on that tradition, promising to tantalize with flavors sourced from multiple ethnic influences. So you can expect your taste buds to travel from India to Italy via France depending on your choice of restaurant.
Whether the goal is to celebrate tofu and seeds, to recreate meat dishes in a vegetarian version or to give an original twist to a tried-and-true classic, each chef has carte blanche to realise his vision of a vegetarian or vegan creation.
Led by a VIP ambassador from the Domaine de Châteauvieux’s two-star gourmet restaurant, Chef Damien Coche, participating establishments include the Loti, the Gusto, the Brewery of the Parc des Eaux-Vives, the Rasoi by Vineet, the Garden, the Living Room Bar & Kitchen, the Terrace, as well as the Chat-Botté, the Auberge d’Hermance, the Tiffany and the Woods.

All that remains to be said is Bon appetit (and as your mom would say, eat your veg!) ♣
