A Look at Disney Cruise Line’s Remy Through the Eyes of Three Michelin-Starred Advising Chef Arnaud Lallement

posted on March 2nd, 2015 by Salah Chetbi, Dining and Beverage Standards and Consistency Manager, Disney Cruise Line


The ever-changing menu at our French-inspired restaurant, Remy, is created by two prestigious chefs, Scott Hunnel and Arnaud Lallement, who are both internationally known for their outstanding culinary creations. My guess is that many of you have enjoyed cuisine from Chef Scott Hunnel at the award-winning Victoria & Albert’s at Walt Disney World Resort. But if you haven’t dined at Remy on the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream yet, you most likely haven’t had the exceptional experience of tasting dishes developed by Chef Arnaud Lallement.

Today I want to give you the chance to hear first-hand from Chef Arnaud about his commitment to bringing the same excellence to Remy that you’ll enjoy at L’Assiette Champenoise, his Michelin three-star restaurant just outside Reims, France. He sails with us throughout the year to develop new menu items and work with the onboard culinary team, so I took the opportunity on his last visit to talk with him about his role at Remy. Take a look at this video to hear what he had to say …

Check back next week to hear more from Chef Arnaud about his inspiration for creating the exquisite cuisine that sets Remy apart from any other restaurant at sea!

The update included a new image showing what the magnificent floating mountains will look like when we welcome guests into Pandora, the mythical land based on the blockbuster film AVATAR. You’ll also be able to wander through a nighttime jungle of bioluminescent plants that are alive with light and sound and discover what it feels like to soar into the sky riding a Banshee.

As Bruce told us in his story, “The project is really pushing the boundaries of what is possible.”
