It has everything a chef needs – in a stylish fashion of course. From designer carafes for juices and milk to fine China, from parmesan grater to an in-build La Courne burner (it’s like the Patek Philippe of burners).

This travel-easy trunk has 3 sections, 20 odd accessible drawers and leather straps to hold the plates upright. Chefs will now be able to bring a more personable breakfast experience to wherever the guests may be – be it in a hotel room, a terrace or even the poolside.

It will be soon available at hotels the French chef has connections to – Dubai in September, then to Courchevel in the ski season and on to Marrakech.
