Academy PROGRAMME

  • Peninsula Paris Marché de Rungis
    Peninsula Paris Marché de Rungis

    Follow The Peninsula Paris' Executive chef, Christophe Raoux, in the world's largest wholesale market for fresh produce located just on the outskirts of Paris.  

    As France is so inextricably linked with food, it is fitting that the world's largest wholesale market for fresh produce is located just on the outskirts of Paris. Relocated from its original location of les Halles in the 1960s, the Rungis market is spread across a massive 232 hectares, and is usually only accessible to chefs and business owners, who come to purchase fish, meat, fruits, vegetables, cheese and fresh flowers direct from merchants and farmers every day of the week.

    Just before the market officially opens at 2:00am, guests will be transported from the hotel in the company of Executive Chef Christophe Raoux – winner of the 2015 Meilleur Ouvrier de France award for leading chefs. The journey begins with a tour of Chef Raoux’s favourite stalls, where guests will be able to make their own purchases, before enjoying a ‘wake-up’ breakfast of a delectably fresh seafood platter or even a steak at one of the atmospheric cafés in the market. The finale takes place (after resting) with a gourmet meal at the Chef’s Table later that evening.

    Tailored especially for younger members of the family, or a special mother and daughter experience, this programme takes you on a journey of one of the five senses – that of “the nose” – which in French means “an expert maker of perfume”. France has always been known for its expertise in the creation of exquisite and luxurious scents. Through this Peninsula Academy experience, you will learn how to select all the right ingredients to blend your own unique scent, in almost the same way that Coco Chanel created her famed No. 5 perfume many years ago.
    To make things even more fragrant, the perfume-making experience is combined with a special soap-making class at The Peninsula Spa, to create long-lasting memories of your visit.

    This unique combination of classes offers “budding noses” the opportunity to create a totally unique gift from Paris, or just simply something beautiful to remember it by.

    Peninsula Paris view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower
    This programme offers a unique way to see some of the most fascinating and beautiful parts of Paris through a fun-filled game of investigation that is based around following a series of clues placed at different locations around the city. It’s almost like playing the role of the fictional character Inspector Jacques Clouseau from the famed ‘Pink Panther’ series, who was known as France’s greatest detective, but who was only able to solve a case through a series of bizarre accidents!

    Of course, an Inspector always needs a smart assistant, so a professional guide will help lead participants to the locations of the clues, which could lie anywhere from the fashionable neighbourhood of Saint-Sulpice to the scenic greenery of the Jardin du Luxembourg. And as with every good detective, whoever solves the mystery will win a special Peninsula prize for their efforts.

In fact, this activity takes in many of the city’s most iconic sights and locations.
