HomeGourmet’s catering team is at it again – this time, we served a gastronomic menu in the decommissioned cableway cabin of Mont-Fort, specially transported right on the coast of Lake Léman and decorated like a Japanese home for the occasion. 

“But why?”, you may ask. Well… because we could.

A week ago, we received a rather peculiar demand from an international company headquartered in Lausanne. It went something like this: “We need you to serve a healthy business lunch for three VIP who know the catering industry inside out, and we need you to wow their socks off both in terms of food, location, and execution. Oh, and it’s happening next Monday.”

After a brief yet justified freak-out, our very own Cyril Grellier and Régis Imbert, catering coordinators extraordinaires, got to work. In a week, they managed to come with the idea, source the cabin from House of Foods (creators of Le Pie), get the authorizations and organize transportation to Rolle. In the meantime, Cristian Cattozzo, Grégory Schibeny and Rémi Tranchida worked on a menu that would fit all the criteria: healthy, gastronomic, and most of all, that could be transported easily to the cabin location.

The result? An event like no other, 3 pair of socks that did get wowed off, and a catering team as proud as tired.
