In 2003, Christophe became head Chef at the three-star restaurant Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée. After seven years there, the doors to the famed Lasserre opened for him, and he joined as the head Chef of the two Michelin starred restaurant. Christophe then joined Shangri-La Hotel, Paris: 'Becoming Executive Chef at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, is a wonderful opportunity for me. I will devote my skills to the service of this Parisian Palace. I am honoured to take up the reins of the three restaurants and supervise the hotel's culinary offerings. I will pull out all the stops to make Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, a shining landmark on the Parisian and international gastronomic scene. I really want our guests to have a unique experience at our restaurants.'
