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!

Erkalium
07.02 in Lausanne

Composed of two keyboardists, Marino Palma and Allan Broomfield, and a drummer, Noé Benita, this Franco-Swiss trio sets off on the Swiss and French music scene to create sounds that make the traditional musical boundaries waver between electronics. and acoustics. By combining the acoustic played and sampled sounds to the rippled and repeated waves of the synthesizer, the group experiences a hybrid and cloud harmony energized by the pulsating pulses of a nerve battery. Through these first compositions, the members of Erkalium develop a meditative aesthetic that explores the sound of the dream. It's all about fusing a universe with influences ranging from Detroit's minimal techno (Robert Hood), electro-jazz, ambient and experimental (ADMX-71) to House/funk from the 80s., and of course so much else.
