BY STEVEN NAESSENS
It is with great pleasure that we announce the installation of the Maison Jeunet by Steven Naessens at the Château de Germigney Relais et Châteaux in Port-Lesney, from Friday 12 November 2021.
Only a few months after the opening of our Caudalie Wine Therapy Spa and its multi-sensory space, this collaboration gives full meaning to the "Château de Germigney experience". Creator of emotions and craftsman of flavours, the Maison Jeunet by Steven Naessens is the bearer of the Relais & Châteaux commitments around taste: choice of products and local producers, respect for biodiversity and seasons
A REFINED CUISINE
Born in the Bruges region, the Chef grew up in a generous and warm family, adept at sharing traditional Flanders dishes. After his first experiences in Belgium, he left for France where he worked alongside prestigious chefs. Chef of Maison Jeunet, he likes people to come to him to feel welcome as if they were at home, and to leave having appreciated the taste and flavour of his dishes with the desire to return.
FROM THE LAND
It is this philosophy of goodness, generosity and sharing that drives Steven Naessens when he gets down to cooking. Emblematic dishes, such as poularde au vin jaune et aux morilles (chicken with yellow wine and morels) or the "Petit Mercey" snails are now part of the fundamentals of Maison Jeunet by Steven Naessens. The chef draws his inspiration from the roots of the Jura region, which is characterised by its strong and unspoilt nature. He strives to sublimate the products of farmers, breeders and producers without distorting them: poultry from Bresse, Fera from Lake Geneva, game, frogs, mushrooms from the nearby woods, allow him, thanks to their diversity and high quality, to create a creative cuisine that respects the seasons and the land.
A NEW GREEN SETTING AT
THE CHÂTEAU DE GERMIGNEY
Steven Naessens uses a rich and generous natural breeding ground for his dishes: wild herbs, mushrooms and berries make up the gourmet and subtle score of the Chef's seasoning. It is in the exceptional setting of the Château de Germigney that Steven Naessens will be able to continue the evolution of Maison Jeunet with passion and generosity.
