Benoit Violier et Franck Giovannini
In 1995, Franck Giovannini went to work in the restaurant at the Hôtel de Ville with Frédy Girardet. He continued his career in the United States before returning to Crissier in 1998 alongside Philippe Rochat. Now, he has succeeded Benoît Violier as head chef. A very natural transition, since he is always striving for perfection. In 2006, he won the KADI Cuisinier d’Or and in 2007 a third place in the Bocuse d’Or, making him the first Swiss chef to win a podium place in this top gastronomic competition. He repeated the experience in 2011 and won the "Spécial Poisson" prize.
