Summer 2015 at Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris is all about Le Pic-Chic Veuve Clicquot

by Royal Monceau Raffles Paris on 05/13/2015 | Food News

The elegance and sophistication of the French ‘art de vivre’ is alive and well this summer, thanks to Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris, the epitome of the modern palace hotel and Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, one of France’s finest champagne houses.

In one exquisite basket, Le Pic-Chic Veuve Clicquot – possibly the most stylish picnic ever – will be available to order 24 hours in advance from May to September.

Laurent André, Le Royal Monceau’s talented Executive Chef, has reinterpreted traditional picnic recipes with fine ingredients. The menu for this delightful gastronomic déjeuner sur l’herbe, at just at €240 for two, is as indulgent as one would expect….

On the menu:

Cream of green asparagus soup
Cold beef filet, Parisian green bean salad, black truffle mustard
Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris’ legendary club sandwich: free range chicken, Emmental cheese, tomatoes, salad, eggs, mayonnaise
Gariguette strawberries and raspberries with sugar
Box of 7 macarons Pierre Hermé Paris
A bottle of Champagne Veuve Clicquot and two bottles of water.

The perfect setting for such a fabulous al fresco treat is just a short stroll from the hotel: the Park Monceau is a well-kept secret, much loved by locals, 20 enchanting acres of magical green privacy, laid out in 1778 in an informal ‘English style’ with curved walkways, a collection of architectural follies – an Egyptian pyramid, a Chinese fort, Corinthian pillars – and statues of famous French figures.

Le Pic-Chic Veuve Clicquot: 240€ for two
Available for take-away (purchase order 24h in advance)
Pic-Chic basket is graciously included for all reservation in Suite (minimum stay of 2 nights)

THE NEW SPRINGTIME EDITION OF ‘MY BLEND SALAD’ BY DR OLIVIER-COURTIN CLARINS

by Royal Monceau Raffles Paris on 04/27/2015 | Food News

The new springtime edition of the My Blend by Dr Olivier Courtin Collection is tickling the taste buds… We’re all set for a vitamin-packed salad!  Make a date at the Bar Long at the Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris to discover it!

Winter is behind us and the better weather is finally smiling down on us! To give spring a beautiful welcome, Dr Olivier Courtin and Laurent André, Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris’ Executive Chef, have composed this sixth gourmet edition as a symphony of subtle and generous flavours, an unprecedented bouquet of smooth and tangy accords with fresh and refined notes.

12.30 pm: whether for a business meeting or a gourmet break after the Spa, here you are sitting at the Bar Long du Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris… and why not on the restaurant’s flowered terrace as the sun is out?

The salad arrives: a delight to the eyes that comes before the pleasure of the taste buds! A cocktail of vibrant colours and sophisticated fare: medallions of mild and delicate Royal Crab, raw and cooked white and green asparagus. A few glossy and fleshy quarters of blood orange beautifully set off the crunch of the asparagus and purslane leaves. Beneath this gourmet tableau, a fine asparagus puree brings the whole dish together with a luscious smoothness, while tangy and highly scented yuzu zest adds a gentle twist to awaken the palate.

Maximum pleasure with minimum calories! When it comes to well-being, the salad is a goldmine for health, offering a perfect balance. Rich in zinc, copper, selenium, phosphorus and magnesium, Royal Crab provides trace elements that are essential for the cell repair process. The ideal combination to prepare the skin for the sun and repair it after the attacks of winter! Asparagus, blood orange and yuzu boost the immune system and maintain the skin’s youthfulness thanks to the antioxidant and anti-free radical benefits of vitamin C. Beauty that is good enough to eat, the sixth salad in the collection offers a new expression that is perfectly in line with the My Blend philosophy. More flavour, more pleasure, more beauty… just for you exclusively at the Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris.

Enjoy the Spring edition of the My Blend by Dr Olivier Courtin –Clarins Salad at Le Bar Long, every day from 12h to 23h (44€)
