La Maison Hubert takes Geneva by storm and kicks off a new round
of Carpe Diem culinary events.

In partnership with Hotel Beau-Rivage’s flagship Michelin-starred restaurant Le Chat Botté, La Maison Hubert will offer three different Carpe Diem events. Each one will offer an opportunity to enjoy a unique and different kind of gastronomy experience.

Both family-owned brands share common values around innovation, authenticity, and humanism. The Beau-Rivage has been a Geneva landmark since 1865. La Maison Hubert is a young upstart Swiss luxury brand. Both partners will showcase local Swiss terroir culinary artists who will share their life stories and their products.

It’s those values that have motivated both brands to collaborate in a unique and exclusive partnership to promote their shared vision of high-end Swiss gastronomy and its artisans.   

And Swiss haute cuisine will definitely take center stage during this first rendez-vous. Because for the first time ever, starred Chef Dominique Gauthier has invited upcoming flamboyant Cheffe Marie Robert (Café Suisse, Bex) to collaborate on a fiery four-hands menu.

This Carpe Diem will push the boundaries of a traditional gastronomy experience as its privileged guests will embark on a culinary backstage journey culminating in the restaurant’s hallowed kitchen. Rhapsody Productions will be on hand with live concert music to complement the chefs’ own compositions, setting the stage for a  mesmerizing symphonic spectacle.
