A spectacle dinner
To sit down with Marc Veyrat is to attend a spectacle dinner. If the chefs have long since abandoned their stoves to pass a head in the restaurant room, the Savoyard pushes coquetry to its extreme by being throughout the meal with its customers. He goes from table to table, tells the same stories and anecdotes that the public expects. He cuts a piece of cheese and wipes his knife with his big fingers of plowman forgetting that he is a starred chef. And the room loves it. La Maison des bois pushes the concept of a gastronomic table far away.
