David Goerne

Despite being born in Hamburg, Germany, chef David Goerne fell in love with French cuisine. After having worked at excellent restaurants in Paris, he decided to settle in Normandy where he now runs a small castle where he welcomes gourmets at his table: Restaurant G.A in Manoir de Rétival. The chef strongly believes that each and every one of us plays a role in the preservation of nature and its resources. This is why plastic is no longer welcome in David’s kitchen. In addition to banning this material, the chef and his team compost their waste. They prepare the menus on a daily basis, using seasonal and regionally-grown produce. It’s these impressive eco-friendly efforts that have earned this dining spot a Michelin green star.
