So that you can see for yourself what’s on offer, Olympics.com went to Port de Javel Haut in Paris to see the meals that the players will be served at the upcoming Games.

Sodexo Live! will open the Olympic and Paralympic kitchen on July 12, and the 3,500-seat restaurant will serve food 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the Paris 2024 Games.

Laurent Pasteur, Operations Director at Sodexo Live! in the Olympic and Paralympic Village, said, “The Village will be the center of their lives.” The players come from all over the world. “At the Village, catering plays a big part. Their job is to help the athletes do a little better by developing menus that are tailored to elite sports and meet the needs of athletes from more than 200 different countries, making everyone feel at home.”

MULTIPLES MEALS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

• FRANCE
• Asia
• Caribbean and Africa
• Food from around the world

There will be something for every individual. There will also be a grill with meat and sides, a cheese station, a bakery, a hot food spread, a dessert station, and a lot of different fruits.

An athlete can eat, but that’s not their only choice. They will also be able to learn how to make the baguette, which is one of France’s most famous foods. The chief chef of Sodexo Live!, Stéphane Chicheri, said that there will be a bakery in the Olympic and Paralympic Village where athletes can learn how to bake.

We thought it was important for the Olympic Village to have a kitchen. We had to bake our own baguettes in the town no matter what… The players will also be able to shape and score the baguettes, as well as put them in and take them out of the oven. They can be a part of those times.”

There will also be signature courses available

Between the Cafe and the Village entrance, an area that looks like a food court will open up. It will have an outdoor deck that is 500 square meters (5,400 square feet).

The players will also be able to choose from some special meals. Charles Guilloy and Stéphane Chicheri, two cooks from Sodexo Live!, and Akrame Benallal, Amandine Chaignot, and Alexandre Mazzia, three partner chefs, came up with the ideas.

These are a few of the signature classes that are available

  • Omelette with poached eggs, artichoke cream, goat cheese, and truffles, by Amandine Chaignot.
  • Tandir with chicken, by Arkame Benallal.
  • Alexandre Mazzia’s smoked salted hake with noodles in a vegetable broth.
  • Bread salad in the style of Almado, by Stéphane Chicheri.
  • Charles Guilloy’s Saatar sweet potato with hummus and chimichurri.

The chef, Amandine Chaignot, went to the show and talked about why a croissant was on the menu.

She said, “When I go to Paris, one of the first things I want to eat is a croissant.” We are going to put artichokes and truffle in the croissant. You can make this vegetarian meal and enjoy it while you walk.

Sustainable catering is an important part of the games

There are a lot of things that the menu does right. It meets the nutritional needs of the players and the goal of environmentally friendly catering for the Olympics.

The food is good for star athletes and should meet the needs and preferences of the more than 206 teams.

The goal of the Paris 2024 plan is to cut in half the carbon footprint of the food served at the Olympics. This is why there are so many fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains. Local and seasonal food will also be a big part of the deal, since they’re good for the environment.

In the canteens, information about how healthy each course is and how it affects the earth will be posted.

La Concorde will also have a 100% vegetarian offer open to the public to support the health benefits of a meat-free lifestyle.

The 3×3 basketball, breaking, BMX Freestyle, and skateboarding (street and park) events will all happen at the La Concorde. The food will be 100% vegetarian, with old favorites like a veggie hot dog with crispy onions, pickled red cabbage, and honey mustard sauce.

Philipp Würz, who is in charge of food and drinks at Paris 2024, said, “We wanted to focus on the vegetarian options.” “About 60% of the recipes for regular people will be vegetarian.” We believe that these Games give us a one-of-a-kind chance to do things differently and show that it is possible to follow a different path. We are very proud to say that all of the food at La Concorde will be vegetarian. We worked on it for four years and it’s the first time in the history of the Games.
