Eric Briffard, Michelin-starred Chef at Four Seasons George V, takes guests to the market and into the kitchen
From April to October, Eric Briffard, Chef of the prestigious two Michelin-starred Le Cinq at Four Seasons Hotel George V, organizes monthly visits to a nearby Parisian food market: a unique opportunity to interact with the Chef and meet some of his suppliers and vegetable growers, and find out how he selects his products.
The idea comes from Christian Clerc, the new General Manager and Regional Vice President of Four Seasons Hotel George V: “There is nothing more typical of France than to discover a food market with the colourful stalls, meet the merchants and hear them talk about their products with passion, and the market’s convivial atmosphere that instantly puts you in a good mood. We wanted to give our guests the opportunity to visit a typical Parisian market with a great Chef.”
A short walk away, the market displays its diversity of vegetable growers, cheese makers and butchers and the visit can start. While strolling through the aisle of the market, Chef Briffard shares his secrets to recognizing the best products that one can find in his delicious recipes.
Once the market visit is finished, guests and Chef meet in the kitchen to attend an informal and convivial recipe demonstration. Dressed with an apron and a toque – the famous Chef’s hat – each participant is invited to participate in the preparation of the dish until fully completed and ready to taste, with a glass of Champagne.
This new experience is held once per month and is available exclusively to guests of the hotel or restaurant Le Cinq, upon reservation at firstname.lastname@example.org
