AN EVOLUTION OF INNOVATION
Just like the nature that inspires two-starred Michelin chef Akrame Benallal, his style is always evolving, in keeping with the change of the seasons. A lifelong lover of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque cuvées, the chef feels harmony with the House, where everything that drives him both personally and professionally is present: passion, family spirit, the appreciation and transmission of artisanal savoir-faire, as well as art and nature as primary sources of inspiration.
A HARMONIOUS ENCOUNTER
In June 2019, Maison Perrier-Jouët took over the extraordinary rooftop setting of Le Dernier Étage in Paris. The House presented a lively and varied programme of events that expanded the dialogue between champagne and cuisine, revolving around nature. Throughout the week, “Akrame’s Table” proposed a harmonious encounter between Akrame Benallal’s gastronomy and Perrier-Jouët cuvées, which were paired with dedicated dishes based on the unique aromas of each one, revealed by Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps during exclusive tastings.
I feel a great affinity with Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs. For me, this 100% Chardonnay cuvée represents a free, vivacious spirit – the kind I like. Along with its charm and generosity, it was an obvious source of inspiration for my bespoke food pairings for the House
