CHEF JEAN-PHILIPPE GUIARD
Lafite
Your rating: None Average: 5

Growing up in a family-run restaurant, Chef Jean-Philippe was constantly surrounded by family members cooking up a storm; hence he naturally drifted into the world of cooking. In his journey becoming a master chef, Chef Jean-Philippe has studied under various French master chefs.

He has also worked in a much coveted three starred Michelin restaurant in Paris where he learned the intricacies of French Classical cooking.

Chef Jean-Philippe believes in simplicity, which is one of the core principles of French Classical cuisine. He stresses that the quality and freshness of the ingredients, over the cooking techniques, are what makes a dish great.
 
For Chef Jean-Philippe, the greatest joy in being a chef is seeing his customers savouring his dishes and having them return time and again to sample his new creations.
