Aston Martin Racing and Project 100 Collaboration
Two years, Two different Chateaus
In 2018 (and 2016 too!), I’ve been very privileged to have had the opportunity to work with the fabulous Aston Martin Racing and Project 100 at Le Mans, France. Specialists in the business of international motor racing and adventure sport, Project 100 ensured my time in Le Mans was one to remember and it didn’t disappoint. This year, Aston Martin Racing returned to the most iconic motor race in the world, the 24 hours of Le Mans, with the all new Vantage GTE. WOW just doesn’t cover it to be honest!
Working with a whole team, both times I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experience delivering a great private chef experience in a bustling and fast paced environment. Cooking up a storm at a VIP Ultra-high net-worth (UHNW) level, I was delighted to produce delicious, high quality dishes for the Aston Martin Racing team and one of the drivers.
Since 1991, Project 100 has successfully hosted VIP hospitality guests at Le Mans 24 Hours. On both trips, I was delighted to join Project 100 and partner up with the racing team for the entire week including the race at the weekend. It gave me an insider's view of Le Mans 24 Hours, while at the same time delivering a full programme of high quality dishes.
Aston Martin Racing
Aston Martin Racing is a British auto racing team established in 2004 as a partnership between automobile manufacturer Aston Martin and engineering group Prodrive. This fantastic team welcomed me with open arms and I feel very honoured to have been asked to deliver extensive private chef services to the team and one of the drivers once again.
Château de la Bouillerie
With beautiful views of the fields to the east of the village of Crosmières and 40 established lime trees leading to the estate, Château de la Bouillerie is a French castle like no other. Built between the seventeenth and nineteenth century, its walls belong to the same family for 200 years. At the edge of the parapet and facing the castle, a small chapel stands. Its stained glasses dating from the 15th century are classified as an historical monument. On the other side of the house, a small garden gives access to a park of five hectares. There’s also a pool, ideally situated to catch the rays of the sunshine. In all, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind after the impressive 24 hour racing at Le Mans.
CHÂTEAU de VAUX
Set in Yvré-lʼÉvêque in the Pays de la Loire Region, 6 km from Le Mans, Chateau de VAUX, a luxurious castle from the XIIIth and XVth century is set in 14 hectares of tended grounds. It features stunning lakes, an organic vegetable garden, a swimming pool and a helicopter landing pad for your convenience.
Situated in the beautiful Sarthe region, Chateau de VAUX is close to the magnificent Grands Chateaux de la Loire and Normandy with the spectacular Mont St Michel and landing beaches.
