A gastronomic
journey

NOWNESS.com invites us on a polysensorial journey into the kitchens of the gourmet restaurant 1947. Located at the foot of the ski slopes in the Cheval Blanc hotel in Courchevel, the restaurant is named after Château Cheval Blanc’s most prestigious vintage, offering a perfect stage for the modernist cuisine created by multi-starred chef Yannick Alléno.

For NOWNESS, French filmmaker Philippe Guelaff fully captures the poetry of this heady atmosphere. Lingering detailed shots of the products reveal the amazing beauty and diversity of the ingredients. Colors, textures and structures are showcased in tight, almost intimate close-ups.

This culinary art demands both concentration and creativity. Yannick Alléno is a modern-day alchemist, crafting complex flavors that may take months of preparation. This time to explore is essential to attain the level of perfection the chef seeks, the absolute imperative to create unforgettable culinary memories.
