michelin star for palace luzern

November 21st, 2008

We’re thrilled to announce that Jasper at the Palace Luzern, the grande dame hotel on Lake Lucerne in Switzerland, has just been awarded its first Michelin star.  Perhaps it was the red deer burger that did the trick?

Jasper‘s cuisine combines the Swiss tradition of locally-sourced ingredients and hearty fare with influences from neighboring Italy, France, and Germany.  Listed on the current menu is the aforementioned red deer burger, served on brioche with caramelized apples, as well as the smoked perch, caught in Lake Lucerne (just a few feet away from Jasper’s tables), served with Colonnato bacon over a stew of artichokes and figs. 

Each menu features “Spa Food,” such as the healthy “Jasper salad” of pears, grapes, pumpkin seeds, and vanilla bourbon, and “Mood Food,” created to enhance well-being using a variety of ingredients: pineapple to fight frustration, tuna to help the winter blues with Omega-3 fatty acids, and chocolate to kick up endorphins. 

We love the clean décor of the lakeside restaurant, which features French limestone, cream-white walls, and suspended lamps of opalesque glass.  And we especially love haute cuisine that doesn’t rely on heavy creams and sauces…after dining at Jasper, you’ll wake up ready for an Alpine hike the next morning.
