Born and bred in France, Chef Jean Louis has built a career through assignments in various hotels and resorts in Europe and Asia. His first foray in hospitality saw him employed in a restaurant and a boutique hotel in Lausanne, Switzerland, after which he stepped up as Executive Chef and made his debut with upscale hotel brands in Europe, where he advanced his career with well-known international and luxury resorts in Asia.
