Foodies traveling to Europe won’t want to miss the chance to taste some of the world’s finest haute cuisine. The Dorchester Collection has unveiled a special package that affords guests the opportunity to savor the Michelin three-starred cuisine of Alain Ducasse in both Paris and London. Chef Alain Ducasse, whose restaurants hold a combined 19 Michelin stars, has been at the forefront of gastronomy ever since he first began cooking professionally in 1977 in the south of France.
Now the Hotel Plaza Athénée in Paris and The Dorchester in London have teamed up to create a delicious travel experience on both sides of the Channel. The Alain Ducasse joint culinary offering includes:
*One meal at Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée in Paris AND one meal at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester in London, including private pre-dinner drinks in the kitchen with the chef.
*One night in a junior suite at Plaza Athénée OR The Dorchester, including two American breakfasts.
*Whether guests begin their trip in London or Paris, they will enjoy the same privileges, including transfer from the station or airport to the hotel and a bottle of Champagne by Alain Ducasse waiting in their suite upon arrival.
The two meals are valid for three months from the date of purchase of the package and can be taken separately from the overnight stay at the hotel. Valid September 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012, subject to availability; not valid during seasonal winter breaks, from December 16 - 31 for Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée and from December 24 - January 4 for Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester.
