Jardin des Sens welcomes new Executive Chef Frederic Thevenet
The French Chef Richard Toix passed the keys of Le Jardin des Sens on to the new chef Frédéric Thévenet who had just landed in Saigon.
After two years of collaboration, Chef Richard Toix went beyond to the mission that the Pourcel Brothers gave him to make Le Jardin des Sens one of the very best restaurants of the city, and this challenge had been started by Chef Thierry Alix in June 2017.
Frédéric Thévenet, who was born in what he calls “Michelin city,” Clermont-Ferrand, started cooking at 15 and has an impeccable pedigree, working over the past 30 years in the Michelin-starred restaurants of chefs Guy Savoy, Guy Martin, Claude Troisgros, Pierre Gagnaire and Alain Ducasse, though he says Ducasse was his most influential mentor.
Discreet by nature, Frederic however dares to venture into a forceful culinary approach. He constantly reassesses his cuisine, and always keeps himself open to new flavors, new influence, new inspiration.
