Hero Profile » About Jean-Georges Vongerichten
Born and raised on the outskirts of Strasbourg in Alsace, France, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's earliest family memories are about food. He later pursued a career in culinary arts and trained under master chefs Paul Bocuse, Louis Outhier and Paul Haeberlin at 3-star Michelin restaurants. Jean-Georges' culinary curiosity found him working and traveling throughout Asia where he developed a love for exotic and bold flavors of the East. His signature "vibrant cuisine" features intense flavors and satisfying textures as a result of the use of vegetable juices and fruit essences in replacement of classical meat stocks. Jean-Georges is responsible for the operation and success of three and four-star restaurants in the United States, United Kingdom, Shanghai and Hong Kong, including Market restaurant at the W Hotel in Boston, MA.
