Chef known for his focus on natural and sustainably-sourced ingredients.
FROM Feb 4, Parisians will have a new health-conscious and haute cuisine option during their lunch break. Marc Veyrat, known for his focus on natural and sustainably-sourced ingredients, is bringing his gourmet cuisine directly to the working public with his brand new fleet of food trucks.
Twice awarded the maximum three-star rating from the Michelin Guide, Marc Veyrat is among the leading representatives of molecular gastronomy in France. Rarely seen without his signature wide-brimmed hat, the 63-year-old chef is particularly known for his focus on natural and healthy cuisine, and he often incorporates wild herbs and roots into his preparations.
Following his disappearance from the public eye in 2009 after a serious skiing accident, Veyrat is making something of a comeback. After launching a new farm stay concept last fall, inviting guests to spend the night in a sustainable and autonomous farm in the Aravis mountain range (Savoie, France), the chef now aims to bring his cuisine to Parisians on their lunch break.
From Feb 4, the chef’s food trucks will travel through several neighbourhoods in Paris, delivering hot meals to customers who have ordered them in advance. In keeping with Veyrat’s principles, the meals offered are based on natural, often organic ingredients that are always produced within France. With starters like split pea soup with wakame or quinoa tabbouleh; main dishes like a “21st century” sandwich or chicken with endive and coffee flavours; and desserts like ginger financier pastries or nostalgic blackberry tapioca, the service offers three courses starting at €13.50 (RM60.60) .
Initially, the food trucks will be set up at delivery points in business area Neuilly La Défense, on the Champs Elysées and in the Paris Left Bank neighbourhood of Tolbiac. After ordering through http://www.mesbocaux.fr Mesbocaux.fr, clients are notified by SMS or through a dedicated smartphone app when their meal has arrived.
Served in glass jars, the meals are prepared on the day they are served, or the night before at the earliest, at the creative culinary laboratory of Multi-Restauration Service (MRS), a catering company with a focus on healthy cuisine.
