FOOD FOR ART Alexandre Gauthier

Maison Ruinart Ruinart chose chef Alexandre Gauthier to be the ambassador of this second edition of Food For Art, culinary expression of this year's artistic reinterpretation, signed in 2020 by the British David Shrigley.

Chef's Portrait Breaking free from conventions

The ambassador of this second edition, chef Alexandre Gauthier, started this conversation at La Grenouillère. 

In his family, cooking is passed on from father to son. As is the attachment to terroir, namely  the Côte d’Opale. This chef has received two Michelin stars, the title Chef de l’Année by Gault-et-Millau (2016), and the status of Officier des arts et des lettres (2019) for La Grenouillère (located in Madelaine-sous-Montreuil).

His culinary compositions are created according to the seasons using simple local products. It’s an authentic and committed cuisine d’auteur, reflecting the adventures it inspires.

Creative encounter

Inspired by a unique dialogue between Ruinart's cellar master, Frédéric Panaïotis, and Ruinart's artist of the year, David Shrigley, Alexandre Gauthier creates surprising associations of flavor contrasts for his Unconventional menu hosted at La Grenouillère. 

THE MENU Hosted at La Grenouillère

The Unconventional menu, which pairs dishes with Ruinart champagnes, declines familiar flavours in audacious pairings to arouse emotions.

This exclusive Ruinart menu conceived as an eleven-course meal, is available by booking on November, 2,  November, 23 and December,14 at La Grenouillère in La Madeleine-Sous Montreuil.

 Ruinart Rosé and Dom Ruinart Rosé 2007 vintages, Ruinart’s iconic cuvées, will be honoured.
