The beautiful star of Manon. The story of Manon's Table had its beginnings in the center of Durbuy, just a stone's throw away from the smallest city in the world, on the heights of Grandhan, where the work of Manon Schenck and David Delmas is now unfolding.

Born in Alsace, in the Munster Valley, one can sense the chef's deep connection to her homeland. After earning the regional title of Best Apprentice in France, as the taste traveler she is, Manon discovered Brittany and its marine treasures. It is an understatement to say that her cuisine journeys between the regions she has traversed and the one she calls home today.

The land on which Manon Schenck exercises her talent lacks coasts, beaches, or reefs. Yet, this young lady knows better than many how to heed the call of the sea and marry it with both her Alsatian roots and her adopted terroir, the stunning Famenne - Ardenne.

Now distanced from the infinite possibilities represented by her native land and the shores of Brittany, she has turned to another free and nomadic element by establishing herself at the summit of a hill cradled by the winds. The local wind aims to be an inventive breeze, revealing a cuisine that is clear, readable, and adorned with flavors. This courageous simplicity is precisely the hallmark of this young woman.

As a perfect accomplice of service and a wine maestro, David Delmas, a native of the region, is the attentive, precise master of ceremonies, expertly releasing Manon's creations.

The plate? A true abundance of products, mastery of both textures and colors, and taste. Irrefutable proof comes through her lovely "sea and land" harmonies, honored by perfect cooking, complementary accompaniments, and presentations that subtly emphasize her French roots.

Here we have a first-rate lady chef, now honored with a beautiful star.
