Chef Tristan Pontoizeau

Welcome to my website !

I was born in the harbor city of Nantes, France, where I completed culinary training in the professional hotel school Louis Antoine de Bougainville, in 1989.

I value freshness and organic ingredients, presentation, colors and textures. My passion for food is linked to my family and French traditions, emotions and memories which are mixed among aromas and flavors….


Professionally trained, before and during Yachting experience as private Chef, I worked in Europe and Caribbean in a wide variety of hôtels, gastronomic restaurant & brasseries. Other experiences like catering cinema, style fooding, consulting, table d’hôtes.

Specializing in healthy gourmet cuisine based in seasonal fresh products, I have excellent knowledge in creative and international cuisine in a wide variety including brunches, chic luncheons, gourmet dinners, cocktail parties, canapés & buffets,  French cuisine, Italian, Mediterranean, Créole, Mexican, American, English, Thai & Japanese cuisine. Custom birthday cakes, desserts, ice cream & sherbets and I am able to adhere to low sugar diet, low fat, gluten-free, lactose-free, salt-free, vegan & vegetarian.


I have gained experience worldwide with the ability to provision on a budget, create specific menus, galley management and organization, food safety and hygiene.

With my experience I can make a difference. As I worked with several different types of clients in the past, I am very confident in my skills as a chef but also as a person.


Because being a private chef means that I’ll work in your privacy, you’ll find that I am very open-minded, adaptable, respectful, discreet and  dependable.


Hardworking, independent, motivated, punctual, flexible, versatile, organized, curious, friendly, positive, honest, creative, respectful, passionate and clean.

Luxury yachting industry

My culinary efforts are based on the client’s preferences, and are always tailored to their specific needs and wishes.


I am extremely passionate about my work, I strive to be clean, organized, responsible and efficient.


Available for extra-seasonal positions, I am preferably looking for a full-time position on the French Riviera at the horizon spring 2023...
