ARNAL SETS UP SHOP AT MERCI / PARIS CONCEPT STORE’S KITCHEN
From March 27th to April 1st 2017, Arnal set up shop at Merci, the must-see concept store located on Boulevard Baumarchais in Paris.
Throughout the week, Chef Arnal worked the most subliminal, flavourful and perfumed fruits and vegetables into his cuisine, announcing the arrival of spring: an ode to produce that can only usually be found in La Chassagnette’s dishes.
Far away from the Camargue and his garden-orchard, Chef Arnal needed to find a quality supplier. He naturally turned towards Alain Cohen, cofounder of the Comptoir des Producteurs shop and market gardener of Saint-Eustache orchards.
He nonetheless brought some of his flagship produce from his organic garden in the Camargue, such as red rice flour and candied lemon to add a meridional flavour to the local products. It was a short week, but it allowed gastronomy lovers to “savour” La Chassagnette spirit in Paris.
