Kyoto meets Paris

Fauchon L'Hôtel Paris welcomes Fauchon L'Hôtel Kyoto: Alliance of a highly gastronomic heritage

In honor of the cherry blossoms in Japan heralding the start of the Hanami festivities, Fauchon L'Hôtel Paris welcomes
Fauchon L'Hôtel Kyoto for a month of celebrations in which Chefs Baptiste Limouzin & Keiichiro Hayashi celebrate the Franco-Japanese
gastronomic alliance between these two renowned properties.


Do you know what Hanami is? It is the traditional Japanese custom of appreciating the beauty of flowers, principally cherry blossoms, the Sakura, when, from late March or early April, they come into full bloom in a brilliant pink color, in the image of the emblematic FAUCHON pink color.

From April 1 to 30, 2024, Fauchon L'Hôtel Paris pays tribute to this ancestral tradition, inviting its Japanese counterpart, Fauchon L'Hôtel Kyoto, for an innovative event and immersive journey in the heart of Japan. In the image of Sakura contemplation, Fauchon L'Hôtel Paris offers a unique and ephemeral gastronomic experience to be savored at the Grand Café Fauchon: "Kyoto meets Paris".

from japan to france, from kyoto to paris: a true love story of gastronomy

Considered the second most gastronomic country in the world after France, Japan is historically the leading export destination for the FAUCHON Paris brand, which set up its first subsidiary outside France in 1972. Kyoto and Paris inaugurate over 60 years of artistic and cultural exchange.

Inspired by the synergy between the two cities, FAUCHON draws its know-how and the elegance of its recipes from both Japanese and French culture. Kyoto and Paris, for their part, are seduced by FAUCHON's gastronomic heritage, which strengthens their bond and unites them around a shared passion: the art of gourmandise. 

Fauchon L'Hôtel Paris, a five-star establishment and member of The Leading Hotels of the World that opened in 2018, is the first gourmet hotel from the House of FAUCHON: it was the source of inspiration for the creation of Fauchon L'Hôtel Kyoto, the first FAUCHON hotel abroad to open in March 2021.

"I leave it to you" is the promise of the OMAKASE menu, which embodies the idea that "Fauchon L'Hôtel Kyoto meets Fauchon L'Hôtel Paris", while applying the Japanese tradition that guests should let themselves be surprised by the Chefs' selection.

"It's an honor to be able to unite the two Fauchon Hospitality properties around gastronomy, FAUCHON's DNA," explains Arnaud Morandi, General Manager of Fauchon L'Hôtel Paris. "French and Japanese gastronomy have always held a special place in the hearts of epicureans, and of course in the hearts of the Maison FAUCHON. Fauchon L'Hôtel Paris, the first gourmet hotel in Paris, would like to celebrate the link between the two most gastronomic countries in the world."

This four-part menu invites you to savor Franco-Japanese culinary delights, blending Japanese aesthetics, technique and savoir-faire with local, seasonal French produce: a promise of refinement and exception!

From starters to desserts, the Chefs will each create dishes embodying the gastronomic art of their country of origin, marking the starting point of this journey between Paris, city of gastronomy, and Kyoto, city of culture.

Le Grand Café Fauchon also offers the possibility of completing the experience with a food and tea pairing imagined by the chefs.
