Jean-Georges Vongerichten booking
Though Jean-Georges Vongerichten is one of the world’s most famous chefs, his skills extend far
beyond the kitchen. A savvy businessman and restaurateur, Jean-Georges is responsible for the
operation and success of a constellation of three and four star restaurants worldwide.
Born and raised on the outskirts of Strasbourg in Alsace, France, Jean-Georges’ earliest family
memories are of food. He began his training in a work-study program at Auberge de l’Ill as an
apprentice to Chef Paul Haeberlin, then went on to work under Paul Bocuse and Master Chef Louis
Outhier at L’Oasis in southern France. With this impressive three star Michelin background, JeanGeorges traveled to Asia and continued his training at the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok, the Meridien
Hotel in Singapore and the Mandarin Hotel in Hong Kong. It was during this time spent working and
traveling throughout Asia that Jean-Georges developed his love for the exotic and aromatic flavors of
the East. His signature cuisine abandons the traditional use of meat stocks and creams and instead
features the intense flavors and textures from vegetable juices, fruit essences, light broths, and herbal
vinaigrettes. Jean-Georges’ culinary vision has redefined industry standards and revolutionized the
way we eat. Jean-Georges has published several cookbooks reflecting his influential style of cooking,
including Simple Cuisine (Wiley, 1990); Cooking at Home with a Four Star Chef (Broadway Books,
1998), for which he won the Best Cookbook Award from the James Beard Foundation in 1999; and
Simple to Spectacular (Broadway Books, 2000). In October 2007, he released Asian Flavors of JeanGeorges, featuring beloved recipes from his restaurants Spice Market, Vong, and 66. Most recently,
Jean-Georges released Home Cooking with Jean-Georges: My Favorite Simple Recipes (Clarkson
Potter 2011). In this book Jean-Georges shares the recipes for easy, quick and seasonal meals that
are Vongerichten family favorites, including Crab Toasts with Sriracha Mayonnaise, Watermelon and
Blue Cheese Salad, Herbed Sea Bass and Potatoes in Broth, Lamb Chops with Smoked Chile Glaze
and Warm Fava Beans, Tarte Tatin, and Buttermilk Pancakes with Warm Berry Syrup.
Jean-Georges is involved in every aspect of his restaurants – concept, menu, architectural design,
staff selection and trainings – in an ongoing effort to create restaurants that are both timely and
enduring. Inspired by his travels, Jean-Georges is constantly developing fresh concepts and evolving
as a chef and restaurateur, both adapting to and impacting the global culinary landscape. In the last
two years, Jean-Georges has opened a number of new restaurants including The Mark Restaurant by
Jean-Georges, located inside The Mark Hotel, ABC Kitchen, Simply Chicken at Madison Square
Garden, The Pump Room in The Public Chicago and Eden Rock in St. Barths. ABC Kitchen was
awarded Best New Restaurant of 2011 by the James Beard Foundation. Jean-Georges has appeared
on Live! With Regis and Kelly, the Today Show, Good Morning America, The Martha Stewart Show,
The Early Show on CBS, Top Chef, the Food Network, in the 1995 PBS series In Julia’s Kitchen with
Master Chefs and Sundance Channel’s Iconoclasts with Hugh Jackman. Additions since then include
NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Fox 5 “Good Day Café” and The Today Show. He is also cohosted his wife Marja’s PBS series, Kimchi Chronicles.
Jean-Georges has made culinary history and developed a reputation as remarkable as his food by
tapping his deep understanding of the restaurant world and pairing it with his forward-thinking vision.
Yet, after years of success, Jean-Georges’ favorite retreat is still the kitchen, and his favorite meals
dished from a street cart in Thailand.
