“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Since 1977, Spa Eastman has been demonstrating the importance of food on physical and psychological health. Based on scientific research, its team has chosen to integrate principles aiming to offer a gourmet wellness experience, without sacrificing taste or pleasure. With its establishment’s touristic vocation, Spa Eastman’s restaurant offers a lot more than an excellent meal. It’s a pragmatic demonstration that inspires its guests to take control of their vitality, longevity and immunity by introducing them to the Tonique CuisineTM principles.
“They did not know it was impossible so they did it.”
– Mark Twain
Tonique CuisineTM was born in the 70s. At the age of 22, President and Co-Founder Jocelyna Dubuc discovered the healing properties of food on her health problems. Over the years, she surrounded herself with experts and food enthusiasts to achieve the impossible: creating a cuisine that’s just as tasty as it is nutritious. For around 10 years, Chef and Nutritherapist Jean-Marc Enderlin and his team have been fulfilling this promise.
“In popular culture, people tend to believe that a healthy diet means making sacrifices, suffering or restricting food intake—that it’s impossible to eat healthily and enjoy an outstanding culinary experience. However, it’s totally doable! Tonique Cuisine isn’t a strict diet. It’s a lot richer and more profound than any fad diet. It’s an art of cooking and living that combines gastronomy and health, flavours and nutrients, and energy and fullness.”Jean-Marc Enderlin, chef and nutritherapist
