Then, he worked as Kitchen Head Deputy along with Chefs Barbier (L’hotellerie du Bas Bréau) and Lozay (Château de Beaulieu). He continued his career at the “Dormy House” in Etretat where he worked as Kitchen Head. The carte he invented was highlighting the variety of local products. Nicolas Clavier now works in the kitchen of Astor hotel, he brings the genuineness and the freshness of its experience to magnify products. His only goal is to make you spend a great culinary moment! It’s precisely like the French to create cuisine that takes hours, sometimes days, to perfect. Some of France’s most splendid dishes downright define slow food, simmering in clay pots and casserole dishes for long stretches as the flavors infuse every bite.
The General Manager, Mr Anura Dewapura states, “Our concept for each month differs and it ranges from global cuisine to Christmas specialties. Hence the mixture of shared cultures brings out the best in culinary excellence. The experience and various backgrounds of our Chefs who are in the Slow Food Team give us the unique ability to recreate signature dishes that are synonymous to Mount Lavinia Hotel. We’re proud of our new cooking initiative and the fact that we’re leaving a smaller environmental footprint while working closely with our own local growers endorses our commitment to the planet.”
