As far back as I can remember, I have always had a passion for cooking. Whether in New York, Paris or London, where I spent most of my career in the financial industry, I usually found myself on the week-ends cooking, looking for fresh and premium products. I also started analyzing food trends, ingredients and consumer behaviors attached to each city I lived in, and then realized there was an opportunity for me to bring the local and hearty cuisine that fondly reminded me of my childhood. A return to my roots felt inevitable.
I have spent my childhood in between my family’s vines and the fields in Gers. At seven years old, I received my first wine press for my birthday. My grandfather had made it with his own hands. I also remember him teaching me everything about the importance of both work ethics and regional values, teaching I still cherish to this day. My life has always been surrounded by the flavors and the aromas of the South West of France. The beauty of the dishes cooked with love by my grandmother, my mother and my father are still vivid in my mind. Stuffed capons, savory lobsters, Cassoulet, homemade Foie Gras, Coq-Au-Vin, parsley-sautéed ceps and so many other recipes passed on with passion.
We have always put a strong emphasis on the respect and freshness of ingredients. This family tradition inspired my brother to become part of French Haute Cuisine working alongside Michelin star chefs. Drawing on this heritage, I came back to my homeland to share through “Les Terroirs du Chef”, our farms, our local production of exceptional delicacies from Gascony and France.
