masters of food and wine à paris

August 25th, 2009

Executive chef, Jean-François Rouquette, of Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme‘s Michelin-starred Pur’ restaurant, has invited six internationally celebrated chefs to join him for the first Paris-based Park Hyatt Masters of Food and Wine event, from September 21-25, 2009.  Highlights include Jean Sulpice, executive chef of L’Oxalys, a one-Michelin- star restaurant in Val Thorens, France, and the up-and-coming Benjamin Toursel of L’Auberge du Prieuré in Moirax, France.

For more than twenty years, Park Hyatt has hosted an annual food and wine festival to showcase its serious dedication to its F&B program.  For the past three years, Masters of Food and Wine was hosted by the Park Hyatt properties in Buenos Aires and Mendoza, and focused on South American cuisine, with a heavy emphasis on the ever-expanding Argentinean wine world.

This September a spin-off of the Masters festival kicks off in Paris with a VIP cocktail party at the hotel where guests will have the opportunity to meet the participating chefs, followed by a series of exclusive dinners orchestrated by Rouquette and his guest chefs over the next four nights. In addition to the dinners, the hotel will offer a special cultural program, Discovery of Paris, which includes cocktail classes taught by the Park Hyatt barman Yann Daniel, a journey to Billecart-Salmon Champagne house, and a tour of the Boucheron factory.

Featured chefs of Masters of Food and Wine Paris:

  • Alex Atala, executive chef of D.O.M. restaurant in Sao Paulo (Brazil)
  • Filippo Gozzoli, executive chef of The Park restaurant at Park Hyatt Milan (Italy)
  • Jean Sulpice, executive chef of L’Oxalys, a one Michelin star restaurant in ValThorens (Savoie – France)
