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 with 27 years of experience, before and during Yachting experience as private Chef, I worked in Europe and Caribbean in a wide variety of Hotels, Gastronomic Restaurant & Brasseries. Other experiences like Catering Cinema, Style Fooding, Consulting, Table d’hôtes.

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.

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.
