Chef, Yann Bernard Lejard




Born in Paris and holding a degree in cooking since his age of 16, Yann Bernard Lejard has been working in many Michelin star restaurants and leading hotels of the world. He worked in more than ten countries believing that one can only be truly experienced if he challenges himself by starting all over again in different places. Through his journeys he learned many new local products and techniques. When he had to take a break due to health reasons, he decided to study and take a different profession as a cost controller. However, very soon he realized that he needed to follow his passion of cooking that allowed him to express himself. Hence, once fully recovered, Yann continued his profession as a chef that turned into a necessity in life. When he became a father, he moved to the Middle East with his family ready for new endeavors and experiences. He also took the chance to exchange his multi-faceted talent, his creativity and sense of esthetics. His philosophy is to make the best out of the product no matter if it is the simplest or the most expensive one.
