Jean-Francois Piege leaves Ducasse for Crillon!

Recommended Posts

Apparently, Piege, who runs Ducasse's kitchens in the Plaza Athenee in Paris, has been headhunted by the Crillon to boost their flagging star-rating...and he's been replaced by Christopher Moret, who previosuly ran the SPOON kitchen...

My initial panic has subsided a little - he's not leaving until February says the article. He's the reason I'm at ADPA at all. No word as of yesterday amongst us regular working stiffs - saw him chewing out staff early Tuesday morning as normal - but I'm sure it's the buzz today.

Thanks for the news!

loufood, can you let us know if any of the others, such as a sous or pastry chef, follows him to the Crillon? thanks. :smile:

I was thinking of going to ADPA in early December, but maybe I should rethink my plans? Any ideas? If he is not leaving til February then maybe it will be ok, but have had experience of chefs taking their eyes of the ball and don't want to pay over the odds if people think this could cause a difference. All opinions much appreciated!

JJS, banish the thought that Chef Piege will go off his game. If anything he'll ramp it up. I should be under his rule at that time - and I'm afraid, very afraid.
