Gastronomy  Alain Ducasse at Le Meurice in Paris
29/10/201412:20 Luxeat

Last time I’ve been to Alain Ducasse in Paris, I found the cooking slightly outdated and the place quite touristy (with little Eiffel tower copies on each table). 5 years forward, it was as if I was at a totally different restaurant. The biggest change is not that because of the renovation works at Plaza Athénée, Alain Ducasse Paris has moved to Le Meurice, another 5 star “palace” hotel on the Right Bank. The cooking itself has been morphed from classic and heavy to light Mediterranean, where vegetables and fruit are the main focus. The executive chef Christophe Saintagne is clearly bringing the whole dining experience closer to the Provençal high end cooking you can find at Alain Ducasse in Monaco…

Bonjour! I am Aiste. A few years ago, I used to be what is commonly called a “top fashion model”, working in Paris, New York or London for major international brands and designers. It’s a known fact: top models don’t eat, do they? Well, I did! I loved to eat, and still do! I’m passionate about good food and fine cuisine, and love to travel around in quest of great restaurants, gourmet landmarks and gastronomical trends. I also have a camera grafted on my left hand, and can’t help taking and sharing pictures of my best food discoveries! Yes, I’m what you could call an enthusiastic world “food-trotter”. And I would like you, dear readers, to be my first-class travelling companions...
