Patrice Fouquet Head Chef
Passionate head chef with good leadership qualities and years of experience. I started work from scratch and with dedication and perseverance made it to the top. I look over the function of the kitchen staff as well as service. I wish to continue this work as every day reminds me of the struggle that I went through to get here.
