This Louis Vuitton dining experience was realized in collaboration with Chef Yannick Alléno, who oversees numerous Michelin-star restaurants around the globe, including Alléno Paris at the Pavillon Ledoyen and Le 1947 at Cheval Blanc Courchevel, both awarded three Michelin stars.
Born on December 16, 1968, in Puteaux, France, Alléno’s passion for cooking blossomed at a young age.
Alléno began his culinary journey by attending the Lycée hôtelier de Marseille, where he honed his skills and developed a deep understanding of French gastronomy. After completing his education, he embarked on a remarkable career, working at several prestigious restaurants across France.
In 1999, Alléno’s talent caught the attention of the esteemed Hotel Le Meurice in Paris. He was appointed as the head chef of the hotel’s flagship restaurant, Restaurant Le Meurice, at the age of 30. It was during his time at Le Meurice that he gained worldwide recognition for his culinary mastery and inventive approach to French cuisine.
