Lentil dal from chef Charles Guillois is one of the dishes that will be served to athletes at the Olympic Games in Paris. Every day, up to 40 tons of food will be prepared for 15 thousand people, taking into account a variety of tastes and cultures. The menu already includes 550 dishes.
Guillois will be responsible for 24-hour food delivery to the Olympic Village north of Paris. He will lead a team of 300 people that will feed participants from 206 countries.
His company has already provided meals to athletes at the French Open, as well as athletes at the French National Football Institute.
He added that 25% of the ingredients used in the preparation of the dishes will be locally sourced.
In addition, a bakery will open, and athletes will be invited to master classes on baguette making.
The chef will begin providing his services on July 10, 16 days before the start of the Olympic Games. Catering will end on September 12, four days after the end of the Paralympics.
To provide food for all guests, the village will have 1,000 people working around the clock, Guillois said.
Every day, athletes will be offered about 40 different dishes. Nutritionists will also be on site.
