Biography:

French executive chef and restaurateur Jean Georges Vongerichten has not only become one of the industry’s most successful restaurateurs, but his overarching influence helped develop the style of nouvelle cuisine in America. Celebrity chef Jean currently owns and has a hand in operating restaurants in places such as Las Vegas, London, Paris and several hit restaurants in his current home town of New York City.

As a prominent trailblazer in the culinary world, Jean studied the culinary arts in France, Asia, Singapore and Hong Kong where he developed his style of adding a unique and exotic twist to everyday cuisine. In 1986 he became the executive chef at Lafayette in New York and would earn the restaurant 4-stars from the New York Times at just 29 years old. He opened his first venture JoJo in 1991 and the restaurant earned the title of Best New Restaurant of the Year.

Jean has published a total of 5 cookbooks and his first book title Simple Cuisine: The Easy, New Approach to Four-Star Cooking released in 1991. Fellow culinary industry giant Mario Batali claimed the cookbook was considered the go-to book for up and coming chefs looking to perfect their craft when he entered into the New York food scene in the early 1990’s. His second cookbook titled Jean-Georges: Cooking at Home with a Four-Star Chef won the 1999 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Cookbook.
