Café Rouge launches new menus and Ducasse Education training programme

Apr 13th

Casual Dining Group-owned Café Rouge has launched a new seasonal set menu and an a la carte menu as well as a kitchen training partnership with the Alain Ducasse organisation.

The latest menu innovation, which champions French provenance and fresh ingredients, follows a six-month study by the brand.

The a la carte menu will feature trademark French classics such as casse-croute – a lunch board of cured meat, cheese and wine inspired by provincial French farmers.

Café Rouge managing director Simon Wilkinson said: “Listening closely to the wants and needs of our guests, as well as the latest market trends, we have put together a robust menu of classic French dishes. Provenance and quality is a massive focus for us so we scoured France to select outstanding local, niche producers to work with. To help our kitchen teams get the most out of these great new products we are providing them with a training programme from the leading global organisation of culinary arts, Ducasse Education, which will develop their techniques and methodology.”
