Fine Cuisine is one of the defining criteria for Relais & Châteaux properties, and there are 160 Grand Chefs that represent this elite cadre of the Association’s international chefs.

 Relais & Châteaux has added the following new Grand Chefs to its 2012 Guide:

Hideaki Matsuo (Japan): On the outskirts of Osaka at the restaurant Kashiwaya, traditional Japanese dishes are served in a ceremonial tea room in this traditional Ryotei restaurant.

Mark Ladner & Mario Batali (USA): Italian classics are reinvented at Del Posto, in a palazzo of mahogany and marble in the heart of Manhattan.

Michael White & Jared Gadbaw (USA): At Marea on Manhattan’s Central Park South, they specialize in Italian-inspired seafood dishes.

Martin Kruithof (Netherlands): At De Lindenhof, a paean to the surrounding countryside of canals and thatched roofs, a magical and bewitching place, it is reflected much in the décor as in the dishes.

Pascal Devalkeneer (Belgium): Just outside Brussels at the Chalet de la Forêt, the cuisine is inspired by the local terroir.

Guy Lassausaie (France): At Restaurant Guy Lassausaie, the gateway to the Beaujolais region, this fourth-generation chef upholds tradition with inventiveness.
