COACHELLA 2013 – HAUTE CHEFS for DAFT PUNK
As Coachella approaches, our phones start ringing with last-minute catering requests for parties, private chef needs and even drop-off schedules. When we got a call from the Daft Punk team to staff, cater and have an on-site chef team for Daft themselves, their entourage and their daily guests – we were thrilled. They’re French, so they know a thing or two about food.
Their visit out to Coachella was to be kept a secret, so we couldn’t share what we were doing before it was released, of course. Haute Chefs was the chosen luxury chef team in charge of crafting three main farm-to-table meals a day for what was about 20-30 people a day along with healthy snacks and even customized pressed juices (which they LOVED). Always, professional and creative, our team was at the Palm Springs estate daily at 7:30 a.m. armed with all the freshest ingredients to make unique, delicious meals for Thomas, Guy-Manuel, their record label team and chosen close friends. Our nights would end well into the wee hours. I guess you can say we were ‘up all night to get lucky’ – lucky for the opportunity to work with them and the fact that they loved all we did, all week long.
