Cuisine inspired by
nature’s innate harmony
Above all, Jeroen Achtien and Maison Perrier-Jouët share a commitment to elegance and a profound love of nature, an endless source of inspiration
The Banquet of Nature
It was this natural affinity which prompted Maison Perrier-Jouët to extend an exclusive invitation to Chef Achtien, the challenge of hosting the latest incarnation of the House’s exclusive Banquet of Nature dining experience.
In taking on the Banquet of Nature, Jeroen Achtien followed in the footsteps of legendary chef and fellow Perrier-Jouët ambassador Pierre Gagnaire, with whom he shares an intuitive understanding of the unrivalled ability of food and champagne pairings to create moments of sheer emotion.
The Banquet of Nature is a unique gastronomic concept, drawing inspiration from the sensory wonders of the natural world to create experiences and connections between people, but also between people and nature. The menu designed by Jeroen Achtien has more than lived up to this ambitious brief, creating a true ode to nature which embraces and amplifies the qualities of the House’s signature cuvées.
Jeroen Achtien and the timeless spirit of Art Nouveau
Located at Hotel Vitznauerhof on the banks of Lake Lucerne, Sens proved to be a home away from home for the champagnes of Perrier-Jouët: the stylistic nods to Art Nouveau found throughout the hotel, and the natural splendour of the surroundings, are like so many echoes of the House’s spiritual home in Epernay.
Art Nouveau, an aesthetic fusion of nature and art, is a central element in the history of Maison Perrier-Jouët. Its devotion to craftsmanship and elegance, and of course the omnipresent floral motifs, are hallmarks shared by Perrier-Jouët champagnes and Jeroen Achtien’s nature-infused cuisine.
