Jean-Pierre will welcome you with his broad smile and his talent for the good life in Paris. It’s been 17 years since Jean-Pierre left his home town in the Deux-Sevres region to take on the culinary heights of Paris, training and working in the kitchens of some of the city’s great chefs. Following an initial break in Latin America, Jean-Pierre moved to the United States in 1998 – and for good, he thought at the time – to pursue his own kind of American dream, offering sophisticated San Franciscans his catering skills as “Your French Chef at Home.” His service flourished, yet Paris called his heart from afar, so in 2000 Jean-Pierre returned to Paris, and began his purchase and renting out of charming apartments to discerning tourists. He continues to refine his knowledge of the city’s best restaurants, both with and without a star, and is eager to share his favorites with you.
