Armand's salad style
Armand Arnal , often called < The prince of plants > is a famous Michelin-starred chef in Arles, south of France. Armand, who loves vegetables, has a seasonal and light cuisine. The healthy and fresh salads he creates have become his signature in our restaurant.
Armand Arnal was born in 1977 in Montpellier, France.
He always has been surrounded by vegetables thanks to his grand-father who was selling vegetables on markets in Montpellier.
He moved to New York in 1998 after learning patisserie because he wanted more freedom.
He then started working with Alain Ducasse, who won three Michelin stars at the youngest age in history.
After working 6 years by Alain Ducasse’s side in “Essex New York”, he decided to go back to France in 2006 to start his own business.
He became the grand chef in La Chassagnette, a restaurant located in Arles, Camargue, in the south of France. He won one Michelin star and has been keeping it until now.
