Regis Marcon: High-altitude Existence – Sold out
Climbing up to altitudes of 1,000 meters and more in the Haute-Loire, you can’t help but wonder how the place came to be home to a restaurant that has been awarded three Michelin stars for close on 15 years on the trot. Then you come to Saint-Bonnet-le-Froid, a very lively village whose 400 inhabitants or so bide their time between boulangeries, patisseries, hôtelleries, bars serving craft beers and bistros. And then, on a lush green plateau, the Regis et Jaques Marcon restaurant. The Marcons believed in the place right from the outset with a menu that reflects the local area and its produce, especially mushrooms, now one of the principal ingredients on their menu. At the Albergo dell’Agenzia in Pollenzo, Regis will serve a menu revolving round the concept of fermentation and featuring some of his historic creations to allow you to breathe the air and the magic of Saint-Bonnet-le-Froid.
Six kilometers from Bra, Pollenzo is the other main hub of Cheese 2017 activities. A special shuttle service will take you from Bra to Pollenzo, so you can create your own program and move around easily without using your car.
