Portrait of a triple Michelin-starred chef, ambassador of « real food »
Becoming a chef was a childhood dream for Arnaud Lallement. Nothing strange for a boy whose father owned the restaurant, L’Assiette Champenoise.
Very early on, the young chef started doing all he could to fulfil this ambition: an apprenticeship with the best chefs, crowned by winning the title of chef of the year and 3 stars in the Michelin Guide. And all this before he was 40.
Today, Arnaud Lallement remains committed to what he deems important – his native region of Champagne, his family and, of course, his passion for cooking. Although his father is no longer around to see him flourish, our young talented chef has chosen to turn his career into a family affair, surrounded by the three women in his life – his wife Magali, his sister Mélanie and mother Colette, who endeavour to preserve the warm welcoming environment and reputation of excellence associated with the Assiette Champenoise.
The chef’s secret? Refined and uncomplicated cuisine. No frills. Arnaud Lallement cooks in the same way as he lives his life: concentrating on what’s important to be completely authentic. “Real food” that seems obvious for Air France.
