It isn't every day that one gets invited to have breakfast in Paris with MOYNAT cooked by Michelin starred chef Yannick Alléno.... so we' thought we'd share this marvellous invitation from MOYNAT to the ever so lucky Green Pebbles Girls.
It isn't just the breakfast in Paris with Moynat and Yannick Alléno which is what is exciting, we are also going to be able to finally see one of the most luxurious pieces of one-of-a-kind cooking apparatus ever to have graced the face of the earth.
Michelin Starred Chef Yannick Alléno's initials grace the Moynat Breakfast Trunk.
Hand-painted in straw yellow and white, the initials bring to mind historic monograms.
With Yannick Alléno.'s invaluable input, over a period of eight months MOYNAT's genius designer and creative director Ramesh Nair was able to fuse the art of travel with the art of gracious living by creating what has been described by Yannick Alléno as the ultimate luxury: a mobile trunk on which to prepare a full breakfast for two, be it in a hotel room, on a terrace or poolside!
Michelin Starred Chef Yannick Alléno with his personalised MOYNAT BREAKFAST TRUNK which is fitted with La Cornue burner, the Rolls Royce of stoves!
All in all, 1,000 hours of work went into creating what could be described as a design, technical, culinary and craftsmanship masterpiece! Four hundred and fifty hours of work went into the outer and inner cladding. The wooden framework required 150 hours. Research and development, and manufacture of the metal parts took 400 hours.
Cut, sawed and finished entirely by hand, the trunk unites creative energy, history and unique skill.
The Moynat Breakfast Trunk opens up into 3 sections, magnificently lined with Alcantara and Initiale fabrics. Twenty or so easily accessible drawers and compartments store cooking utensils, a croissant basket, milk jug, cutlery, white D. Porthault table linens embroidered with “Moynat Paris” and edged in dark brown, the house colour.
The Moynat Breakfast Trunk will soon delight clients at the One&Only hotel The Palm, Dubai; the Cheval Blanc, Courchevel; the Shangri-La, Beijing; and the Royal Mansour, Marrakech, where chef Yannick Alléno presides over the kitchens.
Feeling jealous already? Yes, we thought you might!
