Born on December 16th 1968
3* and 2* Michelin
Having trained at the Royal Monceau and chez Drouant, Yannick Alléno’s skills are the result of the purest Parisian
culinary tradition and he has a penchant for sophisticated cuisine with classical French roots to which he gives a zest of
youth. After working at the Scribe, where he earned a second star from the Michelin Guide, he accepted to manage the
kitchens of the famous Hôtel Meurice in 2003 and was awarded three stars. He is also a keen competitor, since it allows
him to surpass himself and set his sights even higher. Before climbing the podium of the Bocuse d’Or in 1999, he had
already won 1st prize of the Paul Louis Messonnier competition, 1st prize of the Auguste Escoffier competition, etc..
However, Yannick Alléno above all loves his profession and has always given free rein to his imagination to create
dishes that make gourmets’ mouths water. He readily describes his cuisine as “lively and perhaps a little sensual”, he is
taking it towards ever higher summits, winning a second star for the Cheval Blanc Restaurant at Courchevel.
