... the Chef
Born in Mélisey in the Haute-Saône department, Laurent Grandgirard has been practicing his profession for over 20 years now. He worked in different great hotels and restaurants in Alsace, during peak seasons on the Mediterranean coast or in the Alps, in the North of France or abroad. Thanks to his former Chefs, especially Frédéric Roy (Le Pot d’étain in Danjoutin), Patrick Henriroux (La Pyramide in Vienne) and Jean-Luc Germond (Le Sebastopol in Lille), he always keeps in mind rigor and focus on good products.
For him, cooking is underlining every product in its season, taste and texture. Right seasoning highlights the product itself.
Many people have seen him sharing his passion : cooking demonstrations, cooking private lessons, wine tastings, meals in unusual places (on a barge, in a garden, in a mill, in a chapel ...). There are always original ideas for special events.
After 7 years at his own restaurant (Oxalis in Remiremont), Laurent Grandgirard took over the hotel restaurant La Vigotte in March 2018, as a new challenge.
Between Vosges and Haute-Saone departments, he is now in this hotel restaurant overlooking, ready to share his love for wines, to cook for gourmet people and ensure everyone enjoy.
