With a combined age of merely 50 years between the two of them, the recent culinary school graduates Jeanne Satori and David Degoursy are already demonstrating a mastery of their art that’ll leave you speechless! In their naturalist den with pared-down decor (cream-colored walls, blonde wood furniture), the duo is throwing the entire Alsatian biotope onto the grill! Take the day we went for lunch as an example: a syrup made from ground-ivy scavenged in the nearby forest to set the scene; a subtle sashimi of arctic char killed ikejime style, raised ethically in Sparsbach and smoked over fermented hops; mindboggling cream of celery fronds, intensified by a truffle fumet and trout roe – which you can shamelessly sauce up with the homemade kouglof sprinkled with fleur de sel, like you would a pretzel, and served with some incredible farm-fresh butter; a cromesquis of venison hunted in the Haguenau forest, paired perfectly with a seared brown trout fillet and escargot dotted with buttons of pickled wild garlic; before an incredible red kuri squash sorbet, topped with rosemary syrup and yarrow flower water. High praise! // François Larosé
