It promises to be a night to remember as multi-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse gathers chefs from his eponymous London, Tokyo and Monaco restaurants in Paris on January 31 for a culinary extravaganza at Le Meurice, where diners will enjoy a five-course feast featuring signature dishes from each maestro.
The all-star line-up includes Dominique Lory of Monaco’s Louis XV – Alain Ducasse, Jean-Philippe Blondet of The Dorchester and Kei Kojima of Beige Alain Ducasse in Tokyo, all of whom will work alongside Le Meurice chef Jocelyn Herland and pastry star Cédric Grolet to create an extraordinary culinary experience.
The evening (priced at €580 per person, including wine pairings) will begin with a first course of marinated sea scallops with bergamot in a seaweed consommé prepared by Blondet, followed by carrots, turnips and abalone by Kojima, who creates simple vegetable- and seafood-centric dishes. Next up is Lory’s Mediterranean sea bass with hints of fennel and citrus fruits, which should refresh the palate before Herland serves his saddle of venison with peppered sauce. The dessert – a vision by Grolet, crowned World’s Best Pastry Chef in 2018 – promises to be “all about pistachio”, but the creation will remain under wraps until the big reveal on the night.
