le Meurice Alain Ducasse
Executive chef Amaury Bouhours is the rising star of our Alain Ducasse restaurant.
Beginning his career at Le Louis XV in Monaco, he then went on to work for chef Ducasse’s restaurants around Paris, including Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée, before joining Le Meurice as chef de cuisine under Jocelyn Herland. Describing his protégé, Alain Ducasse says Amaury was a natural choice for the role,
“embodying a youthful outlook and fresh approach to ‘Essential Cuisine’, with a passion for authentic flavours and the excellence of contemporary French gastronomy”.
What can a starred cuisine that’s truly in phase with its times be when you are in one of the loveliest and oldest Parisian palaces? Amaury Bouhours and his team provide an answer to this question that is as personal as it is brilliant.
A wind of freedom.
The tour de force first of all means that none of the fundamentals of French haute cuisine can be left by the wayside: all the precision of the cooking, all the subtlety of the jus are there. His years of experience gained in Alain Ducasse’s world offer Amaury the sound technical foundations he needs for his cooking. Likewise, none of the master’s precepts are forgotten regarding the produce: it all comes from the best growers and the menu quite legitimately pays glowing tribute.
