Our cooking principles

Our catering principles are based on the concept of mindful eating. They have been created with a view to guaranteeing healthy food for our guests and minimizing the impact on the environment.

Purity on your plate

You won’t find any processed foods in our recipes (powders, additives, preservatives). What’s more, our slow cooking preserves the nutrients and authentic taste of our ingredients.

From field to kitchen

We prioritize products from within a 150 km radius of Le Monastère, thanks to the Le PRÉ cooperative. Our chefs draw inspiration from their collaboration with local producers to create succulent dishes based on what’s available and what’s in season. Freshness guaranteed!

Priority to organic produce

The meats, fish, vegetable proteins, cold-pressed oils, cereals, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices and natural sugars we use in our cooking are primarily organic. You can eat with respect for your health and that of the planet!

Listening to your needs

While we can’t guarantee the elimination of cross-contamination, we can cater to your specific dietary requirements on request (allergies, vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, etc.). What’s more: we don’t use butter or dairy products in our baking processes to accommodate certain intolerances.

Enhance your event with our healthy cuisine

Group meals at Le Monastère offer a culinary experience inspired by mindful eating. Our catering service offers healthy and tasty menus, thoughtfully designed to reflect our sustainable values. Healthy snacks and beverages are also available during breaks in your event. There’s something for everyone!
