A Shower Of Stars

LE BRASSUS, Switzerland, December 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The most starred chef in the world often travels the countryside in search of local produce. But, this time, he is visiting a farm of another kind in the village of Le Brassus, Switzerland for quite another reason: the Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Blancpain, another quite different realm from gastronomy that also strikes a chord with Joël Robuchon. A quest for excellence, know-how, precise gestures, passion and meticulous hand craftmanship, friendliness and knowledge transfer: the great French chef naturally recognises in Blancpain his own values and the principles he applies in his cuisine. This passionate enthusiast is coming to see for himself the work of the watchmaking artisans in their workshops at the Manufacture. Making the most of his presence in the Jura region of Canton Vaud, his illustrious colleague Frédy Girardet, former chef of the Hôtel de Ville in Crissier, joins him for this visit. They will then meet up with Philippe Rochat for a meal at Benoît Violier's table. Joël Robuchon indeed already suggested this promising young talent to Frédy Girardet in 1996 and he swiftly became indispensable. When Giradet handed over the establishment to Philippe Rochat a year later, there was no question of letting him return to France.

Over 275 years of tradition in motion:

Founded in 1735 by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain, the watch brand bearing his name is the oldest in the world. Blancpain is currently engaged in the renewal of mechanical watchmaking and to passing on exceptional expertise from one generation to the next through constant investment in human resources, production facilities and research. This approach is its strength and the expression of our long-term vision, even though it goes against the tide of a certain tendency to seek immediate profit.
