First, We Forage
Gourmet travelers will love the opportunity to visit a local farmers’ market to source ingredients with Hôtel Lancaster’s executive chef, Julien Roucheteau.
Your day begins early, with an 8:00h rendezvous in the lobby to ensure an early arrival at Marché de l'Alma in the eight arrondissement, and access to the day’s best selections from top local vendors.
At the market, chef Julien will introduce you to his favorite grocers, butchers, fishmongers, and specialty purveyors, who can share details about their daily offerings, and invite you to taste their most appealing samples.
Roam from stall to stall, and select the ingredients you would like to prepare later that evening with chef Julien's supervision at Hôtel Lancaster’s one Michelin-starred restaurant, La Table du Lancaster.
Source ingredients at the peak of freshness at a local market, and create a Michelin star-worthy dinner with La Table Du Lancaster’s executive chef.
