Work With Renowned Chef Jean-Marc Villard:

Chef Jean-Marc Villard brings to his renown teaching a love of cooking inherited from his family.

Jean-Marc served in some of the finest French restaurants in France and abroad including L’Oasis à la Napoule (near Nice), “Le Gourmandin”, “L’Alexandrin*” in Lyon. He also brought French culinary excellence to the US working in a French restaurant in Saint Louis, Missouri.

His teaching experience and his passion for sharing this love of French gastronomy brought him to be an integral part of the faculty of the prestigious Paul Bocuse Institute in Lyon as Chef Instructor in 1991.

Jean-Marc did not content himself with welcoming international students to France; he brought his culinary skills into the field training restaurant teams and also amateurs in different countries.
