Chef Laurent views chocolate as a noble product that must be treated with respect. He is a strong believer in chocolate’s medicinal qualities and has formed his own theory that there is one kind of chocolate for every moment: “whatever your mood is, there is a chocolate for it”. Chocolate is a source of happiness, as he demonstrates when it comes to blending “Liquid Chocolates”.

“I can match the flavour to the guests’ personalities,” he says. “I talk to them, find out things about them, and then blend a chocolate to match their mood and character. Most important is to simply bring a smile to their face.”

Over the years tastes have changed and matured; Chef Laurent aims to keep the buffet fresh, innovative and reflecting the seasons for our hotel guests as well as our many regular local patrons.
