Enjoy 50% off a healthy juice or snack with every "menu" purchase!

Everyone’s talking about healthy eating at the moment…workshops are popping up all over Geneva and Vaud about how to live more healthily, and invariably this includes making sensible choices about your diet.  We all know it makes sense, but do we have the time required to research the recipes, buy the food and then prepare it? How much easier it would be if that could all be done for us!

One local company which does just that is TAKINOA. Knowitall.ch met with Sales Manager, Delphine Graf, at their boutique restaurant in Nyon to find out more and the company and discover the secret behind its huge success in this region.

Founder, Eric Lebel

Launched officially under its current name back in 2013, TAKINOA is the brain child of Eric Lebel, a passionate mountaineer who was constantly searching ideas for healthy food that would give him the energy he needed when walking in the mountains.

Delphine told us, "As Eric researched various food options for his hikes, he soon realised that he was not alone in wanting to know more about healthy eating…indeed, it wasn’t just sporty people who were looking for healthy food, people from all walks of life were keen to improve their eating habits by introducing more healthy, balanced meals into their diet."

A new gastronomic restaurant opened its doors last month on the third floor of the public zone of Geneva Airport.

Called “Le Chef”, the light and airy neo-industrial style restaurant enjoys spectacular views over the airport runways and Jura mountains, and welcomes international travellers and local residents alike.

But what makes Le Chef unique is not its lofty location with large bay windows and penthouse feel – although these certainly create a special atmosphere. Without doubt, it is the inventive cuisine, signed by Benjamin Luzuy, the leader of a new generation of passionate chefs, which sets this restaurant apart from others. Being a passionate ambassador of local produce, Benjamin has created an authentic menu that incorporates local produce from the Romand region, presented in 4 seasonal collections using 4 different cooking methods, namely raw/marinated, steam, naked flame and slow cooking.

Looking for some menu ideas for Valentine's Day on Saturday, 13th February or Sunday 14th February (some are even offering meals Friday 12th)? We have hand-picked a few in the area that would be delicious and memorable. Remember that tables get booked up relatively fast so unless you want to go for a last-minute pizza then we suggest contacting venues as soon as possible!
