Louvre Hotels Group is the official partner of the 18th edition of the Antonin Carême Gastronomic Literary Award. The ceremony took place on Wednesday, December 12 at the Table du Luxembourg, the restaurant of Chef Philippe Renard, at the heart of the Luxembourg garden in Paris.
This prize, named after the founder of French gastronomic cuisine, recognises the best book featuring literature and gastronomy.
