Haute-Lozère Porcini Risotto, Beef jus

Alain Ducasse Edition shares a recipe : "Haute-Lozère Porcini Risotto, Beef jus", a tasty autumn dish.

Alain Ducasse explains: "Cooking is generosity. Food has much more flavor when it is shared happily with others. The key to really enjoy food is a beautiful set table with friends around it and lively conversation. Here is a hearty but regal dish that one would be proud to serve to guests. I love these kinds of dishes because they embody the real values of a meal: friendship and conviviality."

This recipe is extracted from the book "Best Of Alain Ducasse".

Spring Renewal At Le Meurice

 

Le Meurice continues to write its history, while remaining true to its origins and by nurturing its identity. The Hotel has again called upon Philippe Starck to redesign its interiors so steeped in surrealism, as well as Alain Ducasse, whose cuisine nurtures the very soul of the premises.

The new menu of the restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse celebrates Alain Ducasse's culinary philosophy guided by the watchwords of excellence, elegance and experience. La cuisine de l’essentiel remains ever faithful to the truth of the ingredient and honest, interpretable dishes. But freely reinterpreted to provide new impetus, gain new momentum.

Each dish expresses the truth of its ingredients. For instance, carrots, artichokes and Chioggia beetroots in the vegetable casserole come from Créance in Normandy, where they were strictly organically grown.

 

 

 

For dinner, to benefit from the full experience, the technical intervention of the chef must be unnoticeable. Yet, with Jocelyn Herland and his staff, technical mastery is very present! As an example, the savvily mastered complexity of the bonito fillet is first very lightly seared for consistency, then smoked with birch wood before being marinated for twenty-four hours in a seasoned jus.

The essential expressed in pastry, for Executive Pastry Chef Cédric Grolet, means shaking off the excess sugar and fat that suffocates flavour – furthermore the appetite! But also limiting the number of ingredients to make tastes lighter and more easily recognised.

Opening Champeaux, the new Alain Ducasse Restaurant

 

Champeaux : A contemporary brasserie set in its time 

The new Alain Ducasse establishment in Paris 

 

Alain Ducasse and Olivier Maurey, creator of restaurant Mini Palais and other Parisian places, has imagined "The Brasserie of the 21st Century", located in the heart of the 1st district of Paris under the Canopée in Forum des Halles. To Alain Ducasse: « We envisioned this space as an original version of a contemporary brasserie. »

A bit of history...Les Halles, a great market hall located in the area called «Champeaux », appears in the 12th century on the orders of Louis VI. A few centuries later, the « Petits Champs », located on the city outskirts lend their name to a brasserie on Place de la Bourse, founded in 1800. The writer Émile Zola features the area in the opening scene of his novel L’Argent (Money). In his old menu collection, Alain Ducasse found a Champeaux menu dated from 15th December 1900. 

At Champeaux, everyone is free to create their own personal experience. A wide-open and sun-drenched space which live all day long and situated opposite Saint-Eustache church. Eating on the go, to enjoy a large feast or snack during an aperitif, the brasserie welcomes everyone, from 11:30 am to midnight.

 

 

Champeaux revives the most beautiful brasserie cuisine classics, using the best seasonal ingredients. The soufflé, the restaurant’s signature-dish, perfectly embodies this faithful to tradition and eminently contemporary approach. Chef Kévin Kowal offers an elegant interpretation of this monument to French cuisine, with both sweet and savoury variations.

A display board, (8.60 meters long by 1.40 meters high) similar to those in railway stations and airports, scrolls - in interactive connection with the kitchen - the menu, cooking times, batches of soufflés, or even the wines of the day...

The most skilled craftsmen, bespoke furniture, noble materials and haute couture detailing, designers group Cigüe has bestowed a soul to the existing industrial structure of this large open space, on a sunny terrace overlooking the Nelson Mandela garden, almost four hectares of greenery in the heart of Paris. The view offers a unique perspective of the Saint-Eustache Church.

With a capacity of 14 guests, le salon privé overlooks La Canopée’s great forecourt. The two tables of this space are rare pieces that Alain Ducasse found at an antique shop. For a century, they were used in the refectory of the Lycée Lakanal, in Sceaux. They bear the scars of time in the irregularities and wear of their edges, completely notched by students’ cutlery, doubtlessly anxious for their lunch!

 

 

Orchestrated by Alain Ducasse restaurants’ head sommelier, Gérard Margeon, the wine list is dynamic and oriented toward Europe. "No less than 70 references are found here, and all can change at the drop of a hat. In the organic and biological category, a white, a red and a champagne will be offered every week.


Mixology is also at the heart of Champeaux. The Canadian head barmaid Marjolaine Arpin reinterprets classic cocktails, with a self-confessed preference for bitters. Taking her inspiration on the history of the area and the Champeaux of the old days. She suggests a few unique and sophisticated signature cocktails.

From breakfast at the first light of day to late dinner, the restaurant atmosphere changes as the hours go by. Malik Alary, DJ and sound designs with a sharp musical selection, creating a singular atmosphere and identity.
