"Pavés" from Geneva
A speciality created in the 1930s by the chocolate makers of Geneva: little cubes of chocolate, dusted with the finest cocoa powder, that melt in the mouth. Pavés are just one of the many delicious chocolate specialities from Geneva, because the city is home to many long-established chocolate making companies (Auer, Arn, Stettler, Zeller etc.). Available from specialist stores.
Domaine des Curiades
The vineyards of the Dupraz family just outside the city date
back to 1909. Twelve grape varieties are cultivated, half of which are destined for the appellations AOP Lully and AOP 1er Cru Coteau de Lully.
Philippe Pascoët, Chocolatier
Winner of the Prix de l’Artisanat de Genève 2006, Philippe Pascoët boldly mixes different varieties of chocolate, fruit purees, and herbs to produce original creations such as passion fruit, black currant and saffron-flavoured chocolates.
The SENS bar and restaurant offer two interpretations of the imaginative and sophisticated cuisine of the Pourcel brothers; these twins were awarded a Michelin star more than once for their Jardins des Cinq Sens in Montpellier. Theirs is Mediterranean cuisine inspired by extensive travel in the region, with striking combinations of hot and cold, soft and crunchy.
