In the Beginning, there was Taste...

At the heart of DUCASSE Paris lies a passion for cuisine, a desire to unveil authentic original tastes, to exalt their flavors and to make our clients happy.

Our Philosophy

Since its creation, our House has persevered in exploring the dimensions of taste through its restaurants, hotels and manufacturing, but also via training programs, consulting and book publishing for all those passionate about cooking.

Today, we have diverse and complementary professions.

All led by the same vision, the same conviction: the importance of eating well daily, of setting the bar high, of respecting nature and the people who participate every day in the development of DUCASSE Paris throughout the world.
