I am a young and motivated 30 years old French Executive Chef, looking for a new challenging position. Despite my young age I have been holding the position executive chef for more than 5 years; I accepted my first appointment in Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort a five star 89 bungalows in Zanzibar, Tanzania in 2004 after 3 years I decide to move to Vietnam to increase my knowledge in Asian cuisine. I worked 2 years as an executive chef until January 2009 in Victoria Phan Thiet beach resort a four stars executive 60 private villas, which is higher service level than my precedent assignment. Since then I have not been lucky in my career path, in June 2009 I moved to Singapore for the opening of a restaurant under the chef holding the only Relais et Chateaux in Singapore. After few months and the opening of the restaurant I resigned end of September 2009, I expected maybe a lot to learn of a new opening in very active city, but I realize that I would rather go back in a resort so I moved in Egypt, Hurghada, but I have been deceive as the offer as an Executive Chef. But personally 2009 is a great year as I got married further so I am looking for a much more stable position for me to settle down.
I have worked in many different places France, England, Bermuda, the United States, French Polynesia, Zanzibar, Vietnam, and Singapore. In every place I have learned a lot about different ways of cooking, different theme of restaurant including Fine dining, Buffet, thematic restaurant. I have been working for more than ten years in the hospitality industry, in well renowned establishment and Chefs such as Michelin Star, Relais Chateau, ‘Meilleur ouvrier de France, Master Chef, and I wish to pursue my career throughout this world of excellences.
I have been in charge of medium size team, up to 50 local staffs in Africa, and manage a multi-outlet environment with very different thematic from buffets to fine dining. I have been working in very large environment in the United States up to 2800 for a meal but I often supervise more than 200 guests function. I am proficient in all culinary knowledge from French traditional, fine dining to any Asian style like Japanese to Vietnamese, as well talented in the latest molecular cuisine, skilful in decoration from carving for buffet to fine dining plated dishes.
My main duties as an Executive Chef are training local staff, maintaining and improving good hygienic conditions, controlling food cost and budgeting, orders and deliveries from local suppliers and of course to always improve food quality, creativity and service. I see myself as a people person and find it easy to adapt quickly to new situations due to my worldwide experience.
I am passionate about my career, always in search of new tastes, dishes, and creation. Having good human relationship, I enjoy learning as well as sharing my culinary knowledge and my enthusiasm and training new young chefs.
I will be pleased to answer any question or send you my references contacts.
