A Royal Dinner Celebrates French Gastronomy

Sixty of some of the world’s greatest chefs are orchestrating Le Dîner des Grands Chefs on April 6 at the Château de Versailles. The dinner is open to 650 guests who are willing to pay nearly $900 each for a meal honoring the French gastronomical cuisine. It might be worth the trip for a four-course meal prepared by Daniel Humm, Kiyomi Mikuni, Michel Troisgros, and more. The chefs will work in groups of three to serve three tables of 10. Each chef will be in charge of his own course, with a dessert arranged by Potel et Chabot.

The meal was conceived by Jaume Tàpies, chairman of the board of Relais & Châteaux, and Marc Haeberlin, president of Grandes Tables du Monde, in partnership with Moët Hennessy and LVMH’s Wines & Spirits division. Proceeds will go to the French Heritage and Gastronomy Mission (MFPCA). The evening will also feature a tour of the château’s famous Hall of Mirrors and an art exhibition in the royal apartments.
