As the son of a chef and an artist, Yoann Conte seemed destined to follow a certain career path. Yet this young award-winning chef has not hesitated to take risks and explore the full range of his culinary talents.
He has moved beyond his region and background to discover new cuisines or products and explore different ways of thinking. From New York to Val-Thorens, from Didier Oudil to Thierry Marx, and after a stint with Marc Veyrat, he has finally found his way and settled at Veyrier du Lac.
A great deal of courage and determination was needed to take over this renowned address, but it is indeed Yoann Conte everyone is talking about at the Lac d'Annecy.
Combining his respect for culinary traditions and his audacity as a seasoned traveller, he offers dishes flavoured with herbs where Nature is the star ingredient.
Just a few kilometres outside Annecy, on the shores of the lake, there stands a former holiday home dating back to the turn of the century, decorated in blue and white. A pleasant garden leads to a floating dock with lounge chairs. From there you can enjoy a luxuriant panorama and the aroma of pine trees.
Yoann Conte has taken up the challenge of restoring the image of this prestigious address. In less than a year, the Michelin guide has rewarded this young and inventive chef, who is not about to rest on his laurels. Obsessed with detail and perfection, nothing is left to chance: from the service to the desserts, every aspect reflects the soul of this culinary artist.
