Some recipes can’t go wrong and here is one you can test in May, when spring is painting its colours in the Jura: the combination of Satigny, Geneva winery Domaine du Paradis with the hotel’s chef Rudy Pacheco in the dreamy setting of the Hôtel des Horlogers in Le Brassus. It’s 45 minutes from Geneva and Lausanne, in the Jura, and if you really want to relax, stay the night (it’s a great time out place) and take advantage of the special offer.
The hotel occasionally offers Wine & Dine evenings that feature excellent wineries, with Pacheco developing dishes paired with the wines.
This time it’s oenologist Didier Cornut from le Paradis who has selected his wines, from the domain’s large and fine collection. He’s known, as well, for wearing horns – you’ve probably worked out by now that listening to him talk about his wines adds a great deal to the fun. He’s happy to expound in English, the result of time spent working in Sonoma Valley, California.
