Talented French Chef, Christophe Moret, joins Shangri-La Hotel, Paris as Executive Chef in January 2015.
Bringing with him more than twenty years of experience in French gastronomy and his own style, Christophe has previously worked with Chef Bruno Cirino at Saint Jean-de-Luz Grand Hotel and then at Château Eza, before teaming up with Chef Jacques Maximin at the Nice Théâtre in 1989. He also held posts alongside the renowned Chef Alain Ducasse, starting in 1990 at the three-star restaurant, Louis XV in Monaco.
Christophe’s open-mindedness and curiosity then led him to the Royal Monceau and 59 Poincaré as Sous-Chef. Later in 1998, he became Head Chef at Spoon, Food & Wine in Paris, where he excelled at blending tastes and flavours from all over the world. In 2003 he became Head Chef at the three-star restaurant, Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée. After seven years there, the doors to the famed Lasserre opened for him, where he joined as Head Chef of the two Michelin Star restaurant. Christophe will now join Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, bringing with him a wealth of creativity and a new wave to the hotel’s culinary offerings.
