Learn more about Chef Clément

From a very young age, Chef Clément (Clément is his first name) has been immersed in good food and French culinary traditions.

It is undoubtedly thanks to his mother that he began to develop a passion for cooking: no frozen meals at home, generous family cooking, and his hands in the kitchen from an early age.

It was in the Périgord that he was born (geese, ducks, foie gras, farm inns..), in Périgueux to be exact (near Bordeaux). It is certainly these incredible culinary experiences that put her on the path to this profession a few years later; he was already very gourmet. And perhaps also its Italian origins, close to Venice, have something to do with it.

Following a job transfer from his father, he arrived in Aix-en-Provence in year 2000 when he was only 9 years old. His passion for cooking grew stronger and at the age of 14, following his classical college course, he went to the Marseille cooking school to follow a 5-year training course.

In the begining of his training

One thing was certain at the end of his training, he was still passionate about cooking, passionate about meeting people, passionate about sharing, but there was one thing he did not like about this job: being locked up in a restaurant kitchen without any customer contact with finally a certain routine that would settle.

Then comes the idea of cooking classes. In 2011, at the end of his professional training, he decided to start thinking about developing a cooking class activity. Because it finally corresponded to everything he was looking for: Work in complete autonomy / Sharing and meetings / No routine / No development limits.
