Chef - Nicholas Granier - French
I am a very friendly, smiley and energetic French chef with 25 years of international experience working for private families in Europe, the US and the Caribbean as well as running my own catering company in St Martin (FWI)
My private experience includes cooking for high profile clients on luxury motor yachts, in villas Cap d´Antibes, chalets in Courchevel & Megève, and a private residence in Indiana, America, and of course for various clients on the island of St Martin where I lived for 10 years.
When I was young my father ran a restaurant, so I practically grew up in the kitchen. It was only natural therefore that I decided to follow in my father´s footsteps and become a professional chef. I attended culinary college in me home town of Nièvre after which I worked in a number of local restaurants before moving down to Cannes to open a restaurant with my father witch we ran together for three years.
I went to work in Nounou restaurant, the sister of the famous Tetou in Golf Juan, best know for it´s fantastic bouillabaisse. To this day, I still loves to cook fish and the techniques I learned there have been invaluable.
After nearly three years I decided to move on the boats and subsequently spent several seasons working in temporary positions on a few different motor and sailing yacht ranging in size from 27 to 50 meters.
In 1998 I got a job in Indianapolis with an American family who travelled to St Martin for their holidays and the more time I spent there, the more I began to realize there was a gap in the market for a local company. I eventually decided to take a plunge and with the backing of this clients, in 2003 I set up my own business ´ Chefs de France ´ .
Through this company I provided a broad range of catering options including personal chef services for clients at home or in their villas, inflight catering for NetJets, AirChef, ASN, and many private jets, even catering for large functions and I also ran a café and juice bar under the name of MathisCafé.
Ten years later and with a wealth of experience behind me, I decided to return to my native France. In the summer of 2013 I worked for a high profile Russian client in their villa in Cap d´Antibes and was so appreciated that I was asked to work for them again the following summer, 2014 and also for the winter seasons 2014/2015 at their chalet in Courchevel.
As you can read on my resumé I worked for many VIP families, and few time for a Russian Families.
I will be very happy to cook for your clients, I love cooking healthy food, light and varied , including Asian, Italian, French with a touch a vegan.
