Three stars in the Michelin Guide: An acknowledgement and an incentive
Anyone who knows 49-year-old Chef de cuisine Peter Knogl also knows that, rather than rest on his laurels, he will now continue to pursue his own style. In his view, the art of culinary excellence consists of combining ingredients while preserving the essence of their characteristic flavours.

Since 2007, Peter Knogl has pursued his own path at the Cheval Blanc at the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois; he remains true to his style, yet receptive to new influences. His creations enhance French haute cuisine with Mediterranean and Asian influences by focusing on the essentials and seeking out a symbiosis of ingredients.
Peter Knogl says: “What do I enjoy most? Selecting and preparing quality produce. What gives me the greatest pleasure? Treating my customers to a cuisine full of colours and shapes, and full of flavours and sunshine. And what gives me the greatest satisfaction? Conveying a sense of well-being through my cooking.“
