About Chef Alain Ducasse

Born in 1956 on a farm in the southwest of France, Alain Ducasse discovered the tastes of produce at an early age. He began cooking at 16 and soon joined the brigades of the leading chefs of his time.

Since then he has built a true culinary empire which includes 32 restaurants worldwide that between them have been awarded by 20 Michelin stars. His other accomplishments include three schools in France carrying the Ecole Ducasse name, authoring more than 100 books and establishing chocolate and coffee manufacturers with 17 stores in Paris, London and Japan.
