The LGCT - LPEJ likes to honour the finest French cuisine, awaken the senses and offer intense moments filled with gustatory emotions. That is why Coco Coupérie-Eiffel and Christophe Bonnat, owners of the Café de l'Homme, in charge of the event's hospitality, offered starred chefs Frédéric Anton (3 stars at Pré Catelan, Paris) and Frédéric Vardon to supervise the "Pavillon Eiffel".
At the controls of the kitchens, the two starred chefs will have a magnificent setting as close as possible to the track and the riders, facing the Champ-de-Mars and the Eiffel Tower, to delight guests in the "business" and "rider" areas. A unique opportunity to discover the dishes of these two chefs and to enter into the world of Frédéric Anton, who is also taking over the reins of the Le Jules Vernes gourmet restaurant on the second floor of the Tower this year.
For Coco Coupérie-Eiffel and Christophe Bonnat, inviting Frédéric Anton to the only sporting and cultural event taking place at the foot of the Eiffel Tower is a unique and magical opportunity they offer to guests of the Longines Global Champions Tour - Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping. Frédéric Anton excels at creating the most subtle sensations. Its way of fixing the flavours, enhancing the aromas, flatters the palate and it is from the first bite that you appreciate all the generosity of its dishes. He is driven by a passion for cooking and an immoderate taste for beauty and goodness.
His presence at the "Pavillon Eiffel" alongside Frédéric Vardon will undoubtedly be THE major event of the 2019 edition of the LGCT-LPEJ.
The Longines Global Champions Tour - Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping is an international show jumping competition CSI 5* and 1*, stage of the Longines Global Champions Tour and the Global Champions League, which brings together the best riders and horses in the world in a festive Parisian atmosphere and a magnificent setting.
