Ascona, (1 September 2021). After 23 successful years, chef Cyrille Kamerzin said goodbye to the 5-star superior hotel Eden Roc, passing over the reins to young Ticinese chef, Caterina Vosti to lead the 14-member kitchen team.
Stations in Switzerland and abroad prepared the young chef perfectly for her new task. She was able to gain various impressions thanks to Andreas Caminada's "Uccelin" foundation, among other things. Here, young, hand-picked talents are specifically promoted and given the opportunity to look into the kitchens of highly decorated chefs. Some of Chef Vosti’s mentors have included Andreas Caminada at Schloss Schauenstein, Daniel Humm at Eleven Madison Park in New York, Holzen Fleisch Metzgerei in Ennetbürgen and also, at Anita Lo's Asian restaurant in New York. All these elements now flow into the regularly changing menu at the Eden Roc restaurant. With the Moving Mountains Menu, there is also a purely plant-based option on the menu every day
At Eden Roc restaurant, Caterina and her team conjure up pleasantly light and aromatic cuisine, creating visually exciting colourful cuisine which compliments the breathtaking view of Lake Maggiore. "My cuisine should simply make people happy," says Vosti. When the weather is good, dinner is served on the spacious terrace.
"We are delighted to support young and local talent from the region. Chef Vosti brings a fresh and dynamic perspective to Eden Roc restaurant," says Simon Spiller, director of the hotel, which belongs to the Tschuggen Hotel Group. Caterina brings management experience from the Rocco Forte Hotel Villa Kennedy in Frankfurt and The Capra in Saas-Fee.
At the Swiss Deluxe Hotel Eden Roc, guests will find plenty of variety in the four culinary worlds. The Resort Dine Around offers guests a wide range of options. In addition to Eden Roc restaurant, the historic La Casetta – located directly on the lake - offers freshly grilled specialties, the Marina and its lounge serve invigorating cocktails and aperitvo from a dreamlike setting, and of course, La Brezza, awarded a Michelin star and 17 GaultMillau points, is not one to be missed.
