Chef Diadié Diombana on the Magic of Maison Château Rouge
We’ve partnered with Squarespace to highlight the businesses that are changing the cultural fabric of four key cities: from London to New York via Paris and Berlin. Here, we have Diadié Diombana on his favourite cultural spaces in Paris.
One Parisian chef making waves within the culinary arts is Diadié Diombana, the head chef of Freddy’s Kitchen. His ethos of combining an audience-focused approach with innovation has seen him previously land the role of Madonna’s live-in chef for a six-month period. To stay inspired, he likes to immerse himself in various cultures. His modern blends of flavours sees him pull flavours from his Malian heritage, as well as South Asian influences to create something distinctly new and fresh. Via Freddy’s Kitchen, he’s sold out takeovers of notable Parisian restaurants and through his work, he’s spread his creations across over 30 different eateries.
In his Trippin guide, he’s curated a list of cultural spaces that he thinks are changing the culture of Paris. Diombana's top pick in Paris is Maison Château Rouge. “This place helps [me] to reconnect with my origins,” he elaborates, “through their choice of traditional fabrics and materials, whilst in the meantime staying modern and progressive.”
