200 chefs and 300 stars for the 25th year anniversary of the restaurant Louis XV – Alain Ducasse


200 chefs and 300 stars : International Celebration of the 25th year anniversary of the restaurant Louis XV – Alain Ducasse on the 16, 17 and 18 november 2012 at Monte-Carlo


















1987-2012 : 25 years of culinary creation at the Louis XV restaurant, hundreds of recipes created, thousands of products transformed by the expert hands of cooks, now chefs, previously trained at Alain Ducasse’s Rivieras. To celebrate in a very special way, the 25th anniversary of the restaurant Le Louis XV, Alain Ducasse and Monte-Carlo SBM aspired to invite the greatest chefs. Thus, 200 chefs from 25 countries, representing 5 continents and 300 stars from the Michelin Guide will meet from the 16th till the 18th November 2012 in Monaco, for an unprecedented assembly. Between professionals, three unique days of sharing knowledge, of discoveries and a series of original events are on schedule, culminating in a gala dinner on Saturday November 17th.


« The themes dearest to me are related to the Mediterranean, deeply rooted in the South, to the Riviera whose produce occupy a fundamental place in my culinary creations. I hold in my heart many other subjects, all speaking of authenticity, aesthetic and identity. Themes related to travel and seasons, identifying tradition and evolution, returning on harmony and memory. The 25th anniversary of the Louis XV then appeared to me as a unique opportunity to gather around these values the worlds’ greatest culinary talents for a stroll through the “country” of taste and excellence.»



Great names of today and tomorrow’s cuisine, amongst them the French Joël Robuchon, Guy Savoy, and also the Dane René Redzepi, Italian Massimo Bottura, all responded to the invitation set forth by Alain Ducasse and Monte-Carlo SBM to take part in the large family portrait immortalising this event. Without omitting to mention the presence of the chefs who now embody the “Ducasse Generation”. During these three days, the desire to explore the richness and diversity of culinary sensitivities will be the driving force behind this summit meeting, uniting traditionalists and modernists, classical and experimental, Northern and Southern countries. A large ephemeral market, by invitation only, will highlight the 100 most beautiful regional produce, presented on Saturday November 17th, by their 25 producers in the Salle des Étoiles -Sporting Monte-Carlo. A tasting event without borders, an elegant manner to express the Universality of Riviera cuisine and an experience rich in flavourful promise are in perspective.
