I was born in a small village in the south of France called Château Arnoux. Both my grandfather and father are chefs, so the kitchen has been a part of my life since early childhood. Some of my favorite memories involve my grandmother and me visiting the market, prepping meals, and sharing it with the family.

My first kitchen job was an incredible experience. It was in a small village in southern France with Chef Eric Sape, a Michelin-starred Chef. I learned a lot about love, generosity, hard work, and always being your best. Every day when you go into the kitchen, cook with love because when you don’t, you can taste it in the food. From this experience, I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

I worked in England for two years at a three-Michelin-starred restaurant called The Waterside Inn, run by the Roux Family, before returning home to France to work with my family. Four years later, I’m the head chef with my dad, and I’m so grateful to work with my family and the incredible team every day.

If I could give anyone any advice, it would be to never give up. Trust yourself. Wake up every day and push yourself. It’s the only way to get what you want.
