Geneva Tourism is delighted to today unveil the inaugural Geneva Food Guide, produced in collaboration with Sébastien Ripari, a Geneva-born international gastronomic expert and food consultant. Developed to highlight Geneva’s authentic and diverse culinary culture, the Geneva Food Guide was launched at a high-profile press conference early this morning.

Designed to be a trusted companion for locals and guests to the city, an initial 170 restaurants were tried and tested to select the very best of Geneva’s gastronomic offering, with the final edition of the Geneva Food Guide showcasing 60 recommended establishments personally tested and approved by Ripari. Providing visitors with an opportunity to discover Geneva’s diverse gastronomic scene, the Guide’s carefully curated recommendations will ensure that even the most discerning of foodies enjoy their stay in the city, with hidden treasures to suit every taste and budget.

Sébastien Ripari, known as the 'chef whisperer’, is as an international authority on gastronomy, having spent three decades offering his unique expertise to Michelin-starred chefs, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs and brands worldwide. Combining his expertise with Geneva’s position as the third most culinarily diverse city in the world, with 11 Michelin-starred restaurants – the most of any Swiss city – the Geneva Food Guide further cements the city’s position as a leader in international gastronomy, drawing travellers from all over the globe.

Elegantly designed in a high-quality hardcover format, the guide is conveniently pocket-sized with over 150 pages of curated content, available free of charge from selected hotels, in the Guide’s recommended establishments and at Geneva Tourism information centres. As well as the keepsake print edition, digital versions are available in both French and English, featuring direct links to restaurant websites to make accessing each of these exceptional dining spots easier than ever before.
