Michelin starred chef, Olivier Jean, at the helm of the kitchens at The Woodward, Geneva, in Switzerland has curated a French Asian menu for the award-winning restaurant, Vetro, at The Oberoi in Mumbai. A delightful experience to be enjoyed from 16 to 18 March, 2023.
Having trained with the iconic chef Joël Robuchon and worked with him in Paris and Monaco, Olivier Jean spent six years at the head of Joël Robuchon’s Atelier in Taipei, and led the openings in Miami, New York, and Montreal. The French chef from Valence then wrote the new chapter of his career in Geneva in the kitchens of The Woodward. Olivier Jean brings Joël Robuchon’s French-Asian fusion concept to life at L’Atelier Robuchon, striving to astonish guests with unusual flavour combinations to satisfy the senses through remarkable dishes and pioneering techniques. Signature dishes include Imperial caviar served with crab and blue lobster jelly, and Turbot, «Loumi» lemon and java pepper condiment, chicory with Japanese pearl. Delectable desserts include ‘the Black Forest’, similar to a mushroom in texture, and flavoured with sour Morello cherries, a light kirsch mousse, and creamy chocolate.
“I am very honored to have the opportunity to share my vision of gastronomy with the people of Mumbai and to be an ambassador of both French cuisine and the way of life at The Woodward, Geneva.”, says Chef Olivier Jean.
L’Atelier Robuchon is the first of its kind in Switzerland and showcases the restaurant’s legendary open kitchen concept, creating a theatrical dining experience in a dimly lit, intimate atmosphere for just 36 guests seated around the counter. Additional high tables and two private dining rooms allow for a further 34 guests. Since its opening, the restaurant has established itself as an elegant and unmissable culinary address in Geneva. The gastronomic performance includes a spontaneous and immersive opportunity for guests to interact with the chefs, almost resembling a culinary ballet choreography that allows participants to embark on a journey through the senses. Since its opening, the elegant restaurant continues to innovate, offering a selection of Joël Robuchon’s signature dishes alongside innovative interpretations from Chef Oliver Jean.
Opened in September 2021, The Woodward is the newest opening in the Oetker Collection Masterpiece Hotels portfolio and the first all-suite hotel in Geneva. Sitting directly on the shores of Lake Geneva, and offering awe-inspiring views of majestic Mont Blanc, the post-Haussmann-style hotel dating back to 1901 is located on Quai Wilson, and was meticulously transformed by world-renowned architect, Pierre-Yves Rochon. The hotel offers two world-class dining experiences, L’Atelier Robuchon – 1 Michelin star- and Le Jardinier, both lead in Geneva by Executive Chef Olivier Jean. This prestigious residence is also home to a sumptuous Guerlain spa.
