UN WEEK-END EXPÉRIMENTAL
AN EXPERIMENTAL WEEKEND AT THE SUMMIT OF GSTAAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!
From the 6th to the 8th of September, the Alpina Gstaad hotel, the jewel of the global hotel industry in the heart of the Swiss mountains, held with great success and for the first time in the world, an experimental gastronomic weekend at the top for the environment.
This fourth Less Saves The Planet event was sponsored by David H. Brolliet, a contemporary art collector and Tim Weiland, Managing Director of L’Alpina Gstaad.
It was the turn of the hoteliers of Gstaad to set a good example and unite to save the planet in an atmosphere of benevolence and serenity.
The Alpina Gstaad, Le Gstaad Palace, the Grand Bellevue and the restaurant on the 16th have created menus adapted to the principles of Less Saves The Planet to eat less, better and consciously.
The weekend began on Friday night with a cocktail reception.
On Saturday morning, at 10am, a hike to the Arnensee was offered to all guests.
At 1 pm, the lunch was held on the theme of «Low & Slow» with the objective of relearning to eat based on the principles of the Japanese tea ceremony: Yoga Food!
At 4pm, the preview screening of Marie-Ange Gorbanevsky’s documentary «The Soul of Wine» took place in the cinema of the Alpina Gstaad in the presence of the director.
The Gala evening began at 6:30 pm with a cocktail at the Nyetimber Summer Lodges in the garden. World-renowned pianist Guillaume Vincent gave us the honour of a private concert.
The evening continued with dinner in the Sarine Hall. This high-flying culinary journey was made by chef Martin Göschel in close collaboration with chefs Franz Faeh, Nich Buchs and Marcus G. Lindner.
Gourmets are invited to reconnect with the food offered to them. The meal must once again be a celebration of the present moment with what the planet offers us.
We offer Low & Slow meditation, a slow and stress-free tasting at the heart of our well-being.
This total immersion of your senses allows you to put your flow of thougts at low frequency and to free yourself from everyday life. Every environmental approach must be accompanied by benevolence.
