2024 Gastronomy

On 18 March, the emblematic Michelin Guide unveiled its 2024 list of the best restaurants in France. As every year, a large number of establishments have been rewarded according to a scale ranging from 1 to 3 stars. Michelin inspectors, whose identities are kept secret, visit the restaurants anonymously to assess the quality of the cuisine, creativity, service, atmosphere and other criteria.

In this article, we present the new starred restaurants in the 2024 ranking!

2 stars for ‘Les Grandes Alpes’ in Courchevel!

Few restaurants are awarded the distinction of 2 stars in the Michelin Guide. This year's newcomer to this very exclusive category is ‘Les Grandes Alpes’, in Couchevel, Savoie.

Set in the heart of a 5-star hotel, chef Sylvestre Wahid's restaurant received its first star just 3 months after opening. Now with 2 stars to its name, this restaurant continues to offer its customers the best products, at the best time.

With a kitchen that opens onto the dining room and can seat between 8 and 20 guests, Les Grandes Alpes is a complete and exquisite culinary experience, perfectly combining plants, the flavours of travel and the high quality of produce from the Alps and beyond.

1 star also acquired this year for l'Alpage in Courchevel

Just a few months after opening at the Hotel Annapurna in Courchevel (Savoie), the ‘L'Alpage’ restaurant has already been awarded its first star in the Michelin Guide 2024.

Chef Jean-Rémi Caillon pays homage to the majesty of the Alps in his dishes, which are always composed according to the season and using top-quality local produce chosen from around the heights of Courchevel.

What also sets the restaurant apart is its commitment to sustainable cuisine. In association with the Pinturault family, they work together to offer a menu with a special focus on plants, using quality local produce that is always in season, in order to reduce the impact of today's cuisine on the environment.

This year, the award goes to Magali Delalex, sommelier at the La Table de l'Ours restaurant in Val d'Isère (Savoie).

Originally from Haute-Savoie, near Lake Geneva, Magali Delalex comes from a family of winegrowers. After a brilliant career in the world of sommellerie, this is now a prestigious distinction for the Head Sommelier specialising in Savoie wines.
