An owner-chef with a passion for contemporary French cuisine
Chef Allan Castellote studied philosophy and law but, inspired by his roots, quickly turned to his (grand)mother’s French-Spanish cuisine that had amazed him since he was a kid. After graduating from the Ecole du Cordon Bleu in Paris, Allan worked with legendary Michelin-starred chefs such as Yanick Alléno, Philippe Mille, Christophe Moisand, and Alain Dutournier. He also cooked in renowned multi-Michelin-starred restaurants such as hotel restaurant Le Meurice (Paris), the Domaine Les Crayères (Reims), and the Carré des Feuillants (Paris). After these culinary highlights, chef Allan moved back to his hometown. Here, he opened restaurant Le Senso in 2013, together with his brother. Honouring France’s rich culinary tradition, chef Allan sometimes also draws his inspiration from foreign classics. The result: local flavours with a contemporary twist.
I would describe my cooking style as classic but with a modern touch.
Around 75 kilometers north of Paris, in the city heart of Beauvais, lies restaurant Le Senso – which is surely one of the best establishments in the area. This modern gourmet hotspot is owned and run by chef Allan Castellote and his brother, sommelier Tristan. Here, these skilled siblings will pamper your palate with local specialties and perfect wine-food pairings. It’s not hard to grasp why chef Allan’s cuisine was honoured with 1 hood from Gault Millau: he always manages to surprise his diners with graphic compositions and well-executed creations, again and again.
