the new generation

On the trail of the greatest names...
At 15, Eric completed his vocational diploma [CAP] at the Hôtel Central in Renaison and from 1989 onwards moved from one quality establishment to the next: Maison Troisgros in Roanne, Bernard Loiseau in Saulieu, then under Pierre Gagnaire in Saint-Etienne, Antoine Westermann in Strasbourg, Restaurant La Belle Otéro in Cannes – so many great figures and institutions in French gastronomy where he could forge his own personality

On March 1, 2008, at the age of 36, Eric Pras decided to leave Saint-Bonnet-le-Froid and Régis Marcon, where he had managed since 2005 as Chef de Cuisine, to come to Chagny and Jacques Lameloise - a wise choice which marks an important milestone for one of the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France in 2004.

With Jacques Lameloise driving home as a declaration of faith that, "our job is generosity" and that "nothing is more difficult than simplicity"; Eric Pras clearly admits his ambition: "Continue the history of the maison and uphold the current level of excellence.".

In other words, true to the spirit of a place where tradition and modernity work harmoniously together, Jacques Lameloise truly has his succession – the meeting of desires at the right time.

At 39, Eric Pras, asserts his personality in a kitchen which always respects the product.

Eric Pras is also a member of the
