French Inspiration, Vietnamese Magic

A chat with César Combe, Chef de Cuisine of La Maison 1888

Chef de Cuisine César Combe of La Maison 1888 started his culinary journey at the age of 10. At home in Lyon, France, he learned the basics of classic French cooking from his mother and grandmother. At 15, he began working in a restaurant and started to draw his inspiration from the scents and food traditions of Lyon. After university, his passion for food took him throughout southern France, to Bora Bora, Hoi An, and finally to our resort.

“I’m entranced by the ingredients here in Vietnam,” he said. “Herbs seem to take on magical properties here. They add spice or sweetness to a dish, and they’re also used for their medicinal effects.”

Combe takes the sophisticated French cuisine developed by our Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire and then combines it with local flavours. He uses an encyclopaedic list of local plants in his cuisine, ranging from rice paddy herbs to wild watercress, anise basil, palm leaf, pennywort and more.

“I love creating the perfect marriage of French and Vietnamese,” he said. “I can’t think of a more fulfilling challenge.”
