CHEF JEAN-GEORGES VONGERICHTEN
In 1973, a 16-year-old Alsatian named Jean-Georges Vongerichten started working at a three-star French restaurant called Auberge de l'Ill. A simple beginning to a tale that’s made culinary history and launched a reputation almost remarkable as his food ... almost. Dubbed the "enfant terrible of modern French cooking," or the "Madonna of the Kitchen," Jean-George has been recognized internationally for his inspired Thai-French cuisine. But his skills go far beyond his kitchen. A savvy businessman, Vongerichten operates a number of three and four star restaurants in Manhattan, Shanghai and Hong Kong. He's also authored or contributed to a number of cookbooks, including Simple to Spectacular (2000) and Jean-Georges: Cooking At Home with a Four-Star Chef (1998). Vongerichten’s culinary contribution to Atlantis Paradise Island is a true delight for all the senses that simply not to be missed.
