Isabelle Arpin invites Laetitia Panafieu to understand the future of food while keeping up her passion for excellence, taste, conviviality, pleasure and sharing…

Stimulate your senses with a new menu of varied tastes and food that is nourishing, healthy, environment-friendly, trusted, inclusive and delicious. 

We are more than 8 billion people in the world today. With an expected number of 10 billion by 2050, the food demand is constantly increasing. Food, whilst one of the most popular hobbies of our century, has a very significant impact on the environment. It is one of the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions, before transport and housing.  

For this first edition, they invite you to dive into a new world of “true or false”.  A conference lunch discovering food innovations and their true/false impact on health and the environment.  

Curating eye-opening experiences, chef Isabelle Arpin and her partner, Dominika Herzig, continue their influence and engagement in opening up new perspectives on food… adding their very own touch of humour and signature twist.
