TO SUPPORT the community of Cognac, Hôtel Chais Monnet is preparing food for the doctors, nurses and carers at the front line of the COVID-19 outbreak.
A total of 365 freshly cooked meals were delivered to the town’s central hospital on Wednesday, marking the first of many deliveries organised by the five-star hotel during the pandemic.

The hotel’s kitchen reopened its doors yesterday to the combined forces of Cognac-born pastry chef Isabelle Bovy and Hôtel Chais Monnet’s very own pastry chef Camille Roché, resulting in a hearty yet balanced three-course meal for essential workers fighting to keep France safe and well.
The community outreach is part of a wider movement established across France called ‘Chefs with Caregivers’, with top restaurants preparing meals in recognition of key workers showing courage and strength in the current face of adversity.
