Stars in the Kitchen


During a champagne-laced soiree at Shanghai’s flagship Louis Vuitton boutique at this year’s ILTM Asia, Cheval Blanc management discussed the growth and evolution of the group’s three properties, including the recent awarding of a third Michelin star for Le 1947 restaurant at Cheval Blanc Courchevel.


The restaurant, headed by chef Yannick Alléno, received its third star in the 2017 Michelin Guide, an accolade that has honored the creativity of the resolutely modern cuisine created by chef Alléno and his teams since his arrival at the alpine resort in 2008.


Since 2008, Alléno has revolutionized the codes of gastronomy to delight guests with unprecedented experiences. At Le 1947, the chef draws inspiration from the rich diversity of local Savoie ingredients to craft a cuisine that celebrates flavor and taste at the heart of every dish. The dishes are a culinary score where each nuance is flawlessly executed.


“I feel an immense joy and I thank the Michelin Guide for the support it has shown us with this new distinction,” says chef Alléno. “The restaurant has a marvelous setting – it is truly up there that modern sauces are born. I am delighted for Monsieur Arnault, with whom our group shares his fundamental values of excellence and creativity.” 


This distinction crowns ten years of effort and creativity and makes Le 1947 the only restaurant in Courchevel with three Michelin stars.
