Yam'Tcha: Adeline Grattard

  • Follow the celebrated Paris chef as she traverses the nocturnal world of Rungis Market

  • Tags:

    Paris' Rungis Market is the largest wholesale food market in the world. Here director Chris Roman shines a light on the sprawling nocturnal market, a place that most us will never experience in real life. In the Nowness clip, Roman follows universally celebrated chef Adeline Grattard through the market as she selects ingredients for Yam'Tcha, the Franco-Cantonese eatery she runs alongside her tea-expert husband Chi Wah Chan. Previously chef at the Michelin-starred L’Astrance, Grattard is intimately familiar with Rungis, which dates back to the 12th century. “She only goes there for vegetables and flowers and fruits, and was super focused on what she looks for,” says the director. “I’ve never seen food so fresh before.”
