WHAT DOES COOKING MEAN TO YOU?

I feel that cooking is above all a means of sharing emotions. I like to tell a story with my dishes and take my guests on a journey. I care about the environment and promote eco-responsibility in my kitchen whenever possible by working with seasonal ingredients from nearby producers and using as little packaging as possible.

A talk with Julien Lefebvre

I like to tell a story with my dishes and take my guests on a journey.
Have you always enjoyed cooking with the pepper?
When I was a child, I visited Espelette in the French Basque country, home to the eponymous pepper and have enjoyed this ingredient ever since. To cook with the pepper, you must be tune in to its aromatic nuances, as well as taste and understand it. We all have our own preferences and limits when it comes to the pepper.
If you could prepare a meal with a Krug pairing for anyone in the world, who would it be?
It would be for Auguste Escoffier, one of the forefathers of French cuisine. I would like to show him the magic of pairing fine French gastronomy with the elegance of Krug Champagne.
Can you tell us of an unforgettable experience you have had with Krug Grande Cuvée or Krug Rosé?
Last year, we organised an event at an authentic Carrelet, which is an Estuaryside fishing hut, in Pauillac, Bordeaux for the 2018 French chapter of Krug Encounters. Guests dabbled in fishing and tasted Krug Champagnes with Olivier Krug before attending a five-course dinner inspired by the fish at my restaurant. I found it so interesting to focus intently on the details of this single ingredient that I knew I wanted to participate in this year’s adventure around the pepper.
Do you remember your first glass of Krug?
Once, at a family celebration, I decided to pair my recipe with Krug Rosé. When I had my first taste, I felt the Champagne was as sparkling and luminous as the holiday itself.
