Cantine was founded by Maud Faussurier. Maud’s family life unfolded around the kitchen table in her parents apartment in Paris. Following a traineeship at the Institut Paul Bocuse in Lyon, Maud working under Mark Hix, Pierre Gagnaire and Roel Lintermans and finally as Head Chef under Yotam Ottolenghi & Sami Tamimi. At Cantine, we are passionate about creating fresh and nutritious dishes. Where possible, we use whole, organic, seasonal and non processed ingredients in our cooking from fruits and vegetables to sustainably produced unaltered meat and dairy products and freshly milled ancient grain and sourdough breads.
We serve natural wine and locally sourced soft drinks and beer.
We are committed to reducing our waste and carbon foot print: our dishes are predominantly vegan and vegetarian, we sparingly serve meat and fish and our kitchen is fully electric and uses 100% renewable energy.
