1983 - 2012: Linda and I successfully ran JEAN-LOUIS in Greenwich through the market’s ups and downs, helped by your faithful/amazing support and an excellent team of employees. We received an abundance of rewards and honors but after 30 years it was time to start a new venture.

2013 - 2018: We found such a challenge at New England Culinary Institute where I started as campus executive chef, then became Managing Director of Operations. Meanwhile Linda took time to finish college and graduated with a degree from NECI.     During those 5 years I had the pleasure of working with talented chefs while defining a healthy equilibrium Education/Operation.  Hands-on continuing education became quickly my favorite focus resulting in programs for a Caribbean resort as well as a dynamic military course. During this time, I had the honor of lecturing at the White House and Fort Lee.

I also organized seminars for Dr Bruno Goussault’s precision cooking Sous Vide classes.

2019 – the next chapter: In addition to Private Master Chef Services for your family or business affairs, we offer hands-on mise en place participation. You, your friends, spouse or kids can be invited to participate in the set-up of your dinner. This is a custom and unique experience designed and priced for your specific event.
