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!

Kolmoset
06.12 in Lausanne

Kolmoset (brelan in Finnish) was formed on a stroke of luck: on their arrival in Lausanne in September 2015, the three young French people who came to study at the Haute Ecole de Musique moved into the same residence. The idea of playing together is born naturally enough. Informal sessions become rehearsals in which, like a rock band, compositions and arrangements are created collectively. The trio takes advantage of the flexibility of its formula without harmonic instrument (inspired by the trio of Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman or the FLY group) to approach the interaction in a playful way, focusing on everyone's listening and proposals. The repertoire is built around this idea of play, mixing re-readings of standards, original compositions and free improvisations.
