MICHELIN STAR CHEF ALAIN DUCASSE OPENS PLANT-BASED RESTAURANT IN PARIS CITING ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS

Another Michelin star chef makes the progressive move to plants. 🌱💚 Rated one of the top 16 Michelin chefs in the world. “Ducasse says the environment inspired the move, but also diners’ changing appetites. People aren’t so interested in meat products now, the renowned Monégasque chef — who has no less than 21 Michelin stars and runs 30 restaurants in and outside of France — told France Info.

“What has changed is the attention paid to how we eat better. Both men and women are careful about their health,” he said. He added that he also wants to be careful of the planet and “its scarce resources.”
French cuisine is traditionally laden with animal products (primarily cheese, followed by meats like beef and chicken). But embracing vegetable dishes isn’t new to Ducasse. He has offered vegetarian food in his 3-Michelin star Monte-Carlo restaurant, Le Louis kXV — Alain Ducasse à l’Hôtel de Paris, since the nineties.

At Sapid, customers can expect to find dishes like tomato and watermelon salad with hazelnut praline and lentil bolognese with steamed carrots. The dessert menu includes poached yellow peaches with hemp tofu. All are served in a refectory-like setting at reasonable prices for the quality of the food. (The most expensive main on the menu is €14.) Source: LiveKindly
“It was natural that we should be able to demonstrate that it is possible to create a restaurant where only plants are the reference,” Ducasse added.”
