The Location

The Town :
Beaune, France

Beaune is the wine capital of Burgundy. It is an ancient town on a plain by the hills of the Côte d'Or, with features remaining from the pre-Roman and Roman eras, through the medieval and renaissance periods. The central "old town" or "vieille ville" is extensive. Beaune, located about 300km from Paris, is accessible by train.

The Venue : Chapelle Saint EtienNe

This place, which today serves as an exhibition hall, is the former Carmelite chapel. The layout reveals French gardens and lush cascades of flowers, signs that evoke the coming to Beaune of the Sun King in 1658.

master chef : Johan Björklund

Chef Johan Bjorklund studied cooking at Kristine Bergs Hotel & Restaurant School where he graduated first in his class. In September 1983, Bjorklund opened his first restaurant. As he became increasingly interested in wine, he created a very interesting concept that was ahead of its time: blending a wine shop with a restaurant.  Then in 2002, he opened a four-star hotel in Beaune with 10 rooms. In 2007, Johan returned to his first love, cooking, and decided to open up a restaurant next to the hotel, Bistro de l’Hôtel. Simple but refined food is accompanied by a vast wine list. Johan travels extensively to experience different cultures and find inspiration for his food.
