About me

St Martin private chef

Welcome to my culinary universe, where each recipe is inspired by the flavors of yesteryear, reminding me of the Burgundian family cooking of my childhood.

I add my creativity to compose a culinary harmony, whether exotic or modern.
By exploring and rediscovering forgotten flavors, my cuisine is a fusion of tradition and innovation.

An avid epicurean and wine lover, I pay particular attention to wine, fusing my passion for viticulture with the art of cooking.

When I started out, I explored the authentic cuisines of the French terroir at the Michelin-starred "Hostellerie des Clos" restaurant in Chablis, learning modern culinary techniques alongside top chefs.

For the past two decades, I've been practicing my passion in Saint-Martin, where I worked at Mario's Bistrot, developing an enlightened vision of contemporary cuisine.

I then honed my skills as a Chef at the prestigious Astrolabe restaurant, perfecting my culinary art.

After discovering a new aspect of my profession by working as a chef in a family home for several months, I decided to devote my career to serving gourmets in their own homes.
