Foodservice: a long family story
Chef Laurent was born in Southern France to a family of six-generation hoteliers and restaurateurs. He built up a highly distinguished career, starting from working with some of the greatest chefs in the world in their Michelin starred restaurants – such as Bernard Loiseau at Hotel La Côte D’Or in France and Alain Ducasse at Le Louis XV in Monaco – to living in and organizing premium culinary events in North America, Russia, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Chef Laurent returned to France with an expertly crafted, worldly style to start his own restaurant, Le Ciantro, where he was recognized as a Michelin starred chef for eight consecutive years.
Michelin Stars: why does it matter ?
The sacred Michelin Stars were created by brothers Ándre and Édouard Michelin – the same Michelins of tire fame – in 1900 to instill a rating system of the world’s luxuries, housed in their Michelin Guide, which quickly grew to become the preeminent guide to the world’s best dining, hotels and more. Today, being awarded Michelin stars is equivalent to winning the Oscar award of the culinary world; it’s the greatest honor a chef or restaurant can achieve. Assessments of Michelin stars are based on five criteria – quality, mastery of techniques, value, personality and consistency – to determine master chefs and restaurants.
It’s not easy to stay at the high level of excellence required to earn and keep Michelin Stars. Those who have entered into this elite club are unequivocally the most talented, creative and skilled chefs in the world, making Chef Laurent’s partnership with ADEN that much more impressive. Joining ADEN Services represents Chef Laurent’s new adventure in introducing culinary innovation and lifestyle choices to a much broader audience.
“ADEN Services has a solid reputation of foodservices and excellent operations in China and international markets,” said Chef Laurent. “I am honored to be offered this wonderful opportunity to devote my skills to the service of a larger group of customers expecting unique and innovative dining experiences.”
