I'll drink milk the day the cows eat grapes.
A quote by Jean Gabin


Discover our combos restaurants shops urban farms "A l'Epicerie" and the Aix&terra "Table-Epicerie", where the Michelin-starred chef Julien ALLANO helps out from time to time.
As a patron of Aix&terra, he signs some of their recipes and dishes, to the delight of our taste buds. As "A l'Epicerie" chef ambassador, he works with our Executive and Resident Chefs, who are trained each season at the Ecole des Chefs to master the classics of our "A l'Epicerie" menu and propose creative dishes that are validated during these sessions.
And if you loved our "A l'Epicerie" recipes, you can make them again at home! Among other things, we sell ingredients and artisanal products in our boutique corners of our restaurants and we share our A l'Epicerie" recipes on this website.

As a Michelin-starred chef from 2007 to 2012 and from 2015 to 2022, Julien Allano's passion for authentic, eco-friendly cuisine has never wavered. As an experienced culinary consultant, he has proven expertise in this field.

Executive Chef

On the "A l'Epicerie" menu, our executive and resident chefs concoct an assortment of salads, soups and vegetarian dishes, as well as revisited classics of French gastronomy. They also demonstrate their creativity with original dishes and tempting offers of cheeses and raclettes, for gourmets in search of XXL flavours. On Sundays, some of our restaurants offer a delectable brunch. Our restaurant "A l'Epicerie" in Chantilly invites you to discover a more "resort" menu, with its lunchtime buffets and small dishes to share in the evening, which have already won over the taste buds of many gourmets. Not forgetting the cheese festivities, for cheese lovers of all kinds.
