Michelin-Rated Chef Briffard
Paris is known throughout the world as a city of discerning tastes. When it comes to dining – from ripe espresso and brie dripping off a crisp baguette to traditional French haute cuisine paired with the world’s most coveted wine – native and visiting gourmands are very enthusiastic about their food.
There is no Parisian more passionate about food than Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris Executive Chef Eric Briffard. His dedication to his craft and focus on using the freshest and best regional ingredients led the Hotel’s restaurant, Le Cinq, to receive two coveted stars from the Michelin Guide – a rarely accorded honour.
Chef Briffard’s divine creations include fillet of red tuna with caviar from the Sologne region and tangy marinated vegetables, and Manjari chocolate soufflé and black-currant pulp. The menu changes frequently, depending on what’s in season, though the Bresse chicken “in the style of George V” has been a staple since the days of Edith Piaf – and it’s sure to exceed your wildest expectations.
You can find more than 100 of Chef Briffard's seasonal recipes developed throughout his career in his book Eric Briffard Le Cinq.
