Tasty recipe ideas for a fine picnic lunch from Jeremie, a top Paris chef

There’s nothing much better than a tasty picnic lunch enjoyed in the midst of a beautiful summer’s day. However, ready-made sandwiches, boiled eggs and soggy fruit are considered altogether passé in today’s world of fine dining and gastronomic delights. Chef Jeremie Tourdjman, of the top-class bistronomic RESTAURANT JEREMIE, in central Paris, advises using the freshest in-season ingredients you can find to put together a delicious picnic lunch.

Chef Jeremie’s motto is “eat a product when it’s at its best” and that applies to alfresco dining as well. According to him, culinary talent is nothing without top quality products. So keep this in mind when shopping for ingredients for your lunch.

Many restaurant-style meals can be adapted into picnic-friendly versions. For example, Chef Jeremie recommends his crispy vegetable tart, with artichokes and fresh cheese as a delicious and light picnic meal, which can easily be packed up into a picnic basket and eaten with your hands. Another picnic-perfect recipe is the appetising combo of Viande Des Grisons (a type of beef prosciutto speciality from the Alps) and Beaufort Cheese, accompanied by multi-coloured radishes. The Viande Des Grisons is also delicious served with crispy bread, melon or other fresh fruit.

For dessert, Chef Jeremie suggests a Brie de Meaux (cheese made in the town of Meaux, in the Brie region) with truffles.

For a well-rounded, Parisian-style picnic, accompany these delicious recipes with a fresh-from-the-bakery baguette, a few other cheeses, such as a Camembert or a Roquefort and charcuterie (cured meats).

Of course, don’t forget a good bottle of wine – a crisp and zesty white is the best companion to a fine picnic lunch, or if you’re feeling especially festive, splash out on Champagne.

When you tire of dining alfresco and long for a tablecloth and silverware, book a table at RESTAURANT JEREMIE in Paris, today.

Fine dining in Paris: What is a Bistronomic Restaurant?

Bistronomic cuisine was born when talented chefs became bored with the stuffy style, pomp and splendour surrounding top French restaurants but still wanted to offer top-quality, seasonal food – and the result was bistronomic cuisine. It is summed up as casual fine dining and is the combination of bistro-style eating and gastronomical fare. The key words associated with a bistronomic restaurant are “experimental,” “haute cuisine” and “affordable.” Bistronomic restaurants are renowned for using innovative cooking techniques and ingredients and for having chefs who are more accessible to their patrons.

While fancier and more traditional French restaurants are rated with Michelin stars, an age-old grading system, the bistronomic movement has its own guide – Le Fooding. Founded in 2000 by Alexandre Cammas and Emmanuel Rubin, the idea behind Le Fooding is that eating is an experience which combines both food and feeling. Significantly, there is no rating system.

It is also common to have an open-kitchen layout and communal tables in bistronomic restaurants, giving a more informal feel and adding a sense of freedom to the eating experience. In fact, bistronomic restaurants have been said to have revolutionised eating in France and the trend has spread globally like wildfire.

One such bistronomic restaurant is Chef Jeremie Tourdjman’s, RESTAURANT JEREMIE in Paris, France. His gastro-bistro falls firmly into the bistronomic category and it offers a combination of friendly ambience with light and flavourful cuisine. Situated close to the Arc de Triomphe in central Paris, the restaurant combines classic and modern minimalist décor which echoes the bistronomic fare and creates a sense of timelessness.

RESTAURANT JEREMIE will not disappoint and foodies across the globe will be enamoured by its traditional cuisine offered in such a contemporary style. Chef Jeremie imaginatively revamps sauces and side dishes and uses only high-quality, seasonal produce.

Can you experience the best French restaurants in Paris on a daily basis and stay healthy?

A certain gourmet chef has serious concerns about your health. Diabetes is a rising concern for many people across the globe and it’s important that chefs, food suppliers and other dining establishments consider the health of their customers and patrons when they prepare dishes.

Chef Jeremie, a renowned chef in Paris, feels that eating great food doesn’t mean you have to forego a healthy alternative. A great meal can taste fantastic and be healthy at the same time. With so many people suffering from high cholesterol, weight issues and blood sugar levels, we’ve reached a point where chefs need to go back to the drawing board and focus on creating amazing meals that don’t put people’s lives at risk.

Things have definitely started to change in the hospitality industry as well as the restaurant business. These days, the highest quality cuisine is also, in fact, the healthiest. Gone are the days where chefs would focus on including as much sugar or fattening ingredients as possible to improve the taste of the dish – today, reputable chefs focus on providing great tasting meals with only the highest quality produce available. Many people can have daily restaurant meals without gaining extra weight or increasing their risk of Diabetes.

If you are able to have lunch or dinner at RESTAURANT JEREMIE, you will see Chef Jeremie is particularly aware of this and is very involved in providing patrons with healthy meals. His dishes are definitely a testament to the fact that chefs are placing more emphasis on providing healthy meals to their guests. Chef Jeremie focuses on the following when creating healthy, creative meals at his restaurant, which is one of the best French restaurants in Paris:

  • High quality, fresh and local produce. Thanks to the level of quality, Chef Jeremie doesn’t have to use oil or sugar to compensate for any lack of taste.
  • Products which are in their natural state (such as fish, meat, vegetables or fruit) for balanced meals.
  • Original flavours, thanks to a lack of oil and sugar in the meals.

It’s important to note that not all sugar and fat is bad. While Chef Jeremie doesn’t use saturated fat or sucrose, he does flavour his food with natural sugars (from fruit, for example).

Well prepared food made from high quality ingredients is good for your health. Eating meals such as the ones prepared at RESTAURANT JEREMIE, is a much better option for your health than fast food or packaged food. Not only is this food healthier, but it’s also competitively priced so that it makes sense for people to eat out on a daily basis. An appetizer and entrée at RESTAURANT JEREMIE, for example, would be priced at €30 and an appetizer, entrée and dessert would be approximately €40. Even by eating his meals on a daily basis, you would not exceed any calorie or weight-related targets.

If you’re interested in eating at a restaurant where healthy meals are prepared by an experienced and talented chef, then RESTAURANT JEREMIE is for you.

His motto is:

“Eat well & be healthy”.

Attending catering college to become a chef, what a famous restaurant in Paris has to say

Chef Jeremie studied at the famous French Cuisine School Gregoire Ferrandi before becoming a chef. This institution is one of the most renowned schools in France and numerous European and Asian students are working tirelessly in order to gain entrance to study at this prestigious school.

Here are some of the pointers that Chef Jeremie offers for wine pairing:

  • A strong & full-bodied wine matches perfectly with game (when in season).

  • If you are eating fish, try a white or a rosé wine.

Chef Jeremie’s biggest word of advice when it comes to choosing a quality wine is not to focus on the price, but focus on educating yourself about the various flavors.

Chef Jeremie’s favorite wine is Bordeaux wine. To be specific, Saint Julien is the vineyard that has captured Jeremie’s heart.  You find in Saint Julien all the typical components of Bordeaux soil – it is a strong and amazing wine.
