The masters of breakfast
August 12, 2022
Jorge Ferreira, fruit chef
From colourful platters and baskets to our famous acai bowl, every morning our very own master of fruit expertly prepares a fresh array of delicious colour for our guests. His colleagues call him ‘The Artist’ because each time he touches a fruit he transforms it into a piece of art. He’s worked at hotel for twenty years and is proud to be the only specialist fruit chef in a Parisian palace hotel. Each month he works with three and a half tons of fruit, so there’s always plenty to keep him busy.
The passion of our teams and their knowledge of our guests are a real strength for us, because breakfast is often the first contact of the day and in most cases, the guests’ last impression before they leave.
Arnaud Berric, Breakfast director
Julien Lefevre, head baker
Like all dedicated bakers, Julien’s day starts early. At 3am he starts kneading and shaping dough to provide freshly-baked delights for our guests. His skilled team have their routine down to a fine art that requires great patience and passion. He takes pleasure in providing a feast for the senses in the form of both bread and pastries, which not only taste delicious but have just the right look and that all important crunch or melt in the mouth.
Did you know?
We pride ourselves in going the extra mile for our guests. For example, one day a guest asked us if we could serve him the same jam he enjoys when staying at our sister hotel The Dorchester. We happily sent a member of our team to London to collect the jam and served it to our delighted guest the next morning.
