書籍の出版 Books

Patrice Julien published his first cooking book “France Ryori ABC” (“ABC of French cooking”, Bunka Shuppan Kyoku) in 1992. Because of his original approach including wines associated with the dishes and also a selection of background music for each recipe, the book became quickly a bestseller and it contributed to change the image of French cooking in Japan, making it more casual and fun. “France ryori ABC” have been part of the start of the “Bistro boom” in Tokyo.

Following the success of this first book, Patrice wished to introduce a French alternative to the “Anglo-American style sandwiches” through his second publication: “French style no sandwich” (“French Style sandwiches”, Bunka Shuppan Kyoku, 1993). This book presenting 40 creative sandwiches have been also warmly welcomed and regularly republished.

In 1994, a third book: “O nabe de France Ryori” (“French Cooking with cast iron pans”, Bunka Shuppan Kyoku) started the trend of the use of European style cast iron pans in Japan. It was largely acclaimed by the media and the public like the two others and became also a long seller frequently republished.

From 1992 to his move to the South of France in 2010, Patrice Julien published around 50 books in Japan, half are cooking books and half essays about practical aspects of “Lifestyle Design”. Back to Japan from the beginning of 2014 Patrice have two new books coming soon; a cooking book and an essay planned to be released by the end of the year.

レストラン Restaurants

After publishing his first 3 successful books, Patrice Julien found a place to embody fully his philosophy about his global vision of life. In an old house, in the middle of a residential area of Tokyo called “Shirokanedai” he created his first restaurant, tea Room and art gallery, the “CFA” (“Centre Français des Arts”). During 10 years, because of it’s particular atmosphere and it’s utopian concept, this place have been renown as a “legendary oasis” in the middle of The Japanese metropolis. Personalities like Issey Miyake, Paul Smith, Joel Robuchon, Alan Chan and many others were regular patrons.

During those 10 years, Patrice also created one of the first trendy café-tea rooms in Japan: “Le Jardin de Julien”, in a shopping mall in Yokohama Minato Mirai. From this experience, he laid down the bases of his concept of a new “Café culture” in a book called “Patrice Julien no cafe” (“Patrice Julien’s Café”, Bunka Shuppan Kyoku).

After the success of “Le Jardin de Julien” Yokohama, a second “Jardin” was created in Ebisu. Then a fusion Japanese-French cuisine dining-bar called Shyuen” opened in Tokyo Nishi Azabu. Patrice also created the first “Tartine-café” in the beautiful area of Kitano in Kobe (“Maison de Campagne”). There, he was offering a delicious selection of open sandwiches made on big slices of warm leaven bread.

In 2000, a Bakery shop, “La boulangerie” was added to The Shirokanedai Restaurant. Because of it’s traditional approach of baking, the shop have often been on TV and in the magazines and it’s fame attracted people from all around Japan.

In August 2003 Patrice Julien left his shares of “Rêves de Vie Studio” to his partner to open “Patrice Julien Lifestyle Office” a consulting bureau specialized in all the aspects of Lifestyle including food, interior decoration, products concepts, etc.
