Saint Emilion: a new chef in Plaisance
We no longer introduce the Hostellerie de Plaisance, a beautiful 5-star that sits in the heart of the village of Saint Emilion, with a decor of perfect elegance fully reviewed a few years ago by Alberto Pinto. In recent weeks a new chef has taken over the destinies of the kitchens. Ronan Kervarrec, double-starred at the Chèvre d’Or in Eze joined the prestigious house headed by the Persian family. He then replaces Cedric Béchade with a mission to conquer two stars. If we rely on the exceptional meal which we were fortunate to be invited to and during which we tasted dishes such as steam trap cake clip, aroma Coraille and Aquitaine caviar … stuffed artichokes gnocchi, chicken juice, sweetbreads from Limousin, crispy natural apple, head and tongue with caper flowers or French hunting deer with squash and red cabbage, huntsman sauce … this prestigious award is well deserved .
