Perch...always a "fishy" subject.
While pan-fried perch is a typical local dish, reeling in this Lake Geneva favourite is difficult;mainly due to its rarity, as the number of fishermen in the Geneva area has decreased drastically and importation is far less expensive.
However, Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva supports local products and producers, and out of sheer perseverance, Chef James Norman, reached an exclusive partnering agreement with local fishermen (the last group in the area) in the fall of 2012. No less than 50 kg of fresh perch are caught each week to meet demand.
For our guests this means the "catch of the day" promises to be fresh from the clean waters of Lake Geneva, but also in limited supply, so be sure to come early in order to enjoy your favorite perch fillet dishes.
"Back to Tradition" is our motto!
