passion for food

“You know, I love to cook and entertain my friends!” – Claude Nobs
Although his father, Henri Nobs, expected him to one day take over the family bakery, at 17 Claude Nobs opted for an apprenticeship in the kitchens of the Schweizerhof Hotel in Basel. When he was 20, Claude Nobs returned to Western Switzerland for studies at the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in order to become a chef. Destiny had other plans: instead, Claude Nobs founded the Montreux Jazz Festival. Nevertheless, he always maintained a passion for great food, often preparing dishes for artists to enjoy after their performances. Our menu is directly inspired by Claude’s simple but high-quality cuisine, based on fresh market produce and designed for people to enjoy. Welcome to the Montreux Jazz Café, and Welcome to Claude Nobs’ table!
