What is your definition of Luxury ?

What you can't find anywhere else in the world. I'm really aware and pay close attention to the services and, I love discretion, confidentiality. To me, Luxury is, for example, the Royal Palm on Mauritius Island, Casadelmar Hotel in Corsica and, Plaza Athénée in Paris. My Luxury is also to be able to spend time with my family and bring them in these places I love.


What is your most extreme Luxury ?

Traveling in first class (smile).


The Luxury you couldn't live without ?

The love of my wife and kid.

Your favorite dessert ?

Flan, it reminds me of my childhood.

The most difficult part of being a Chef ?

Not being able to taste our cakes when we are on a diet (smile).


Do you still practice a lot of sports ?

Each year, I'm challenging myself with sports events. I already run Paris marathon, climbed Mont Blanc and participated at VIP Roland Garros tournament. Preparation is intense and I'm exhausted at the end.
