2–Michelin Star French Chef from the famous Le Parc Restaurant in Domaine Les Crayères, France.
A quiet man who loves the simple pleasures of life, French Chef Philippe Mille’s determination and passion for his art have been rewarded with spectacular success. He has so far earned two Michelin stars, along with other prestigious awards, and is one of the few chefs in the world allowed to wear the red, white and blue collar of the coveted M.O.F. — the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France, the highest and most prestigious award amongst all professional craftsmen in France.
Chef Philippe Mille grew up in a farming family in the Sarthe in Western France, where he had the experience of observing the growth and stages of vegetables and livestock. Discovering their nuances and qualities, and enjoying the delicious and unforgettable meals created from them by his family, Philippe Mille began honing his sense of taste early on.
At age 15, he entered the Le Mans culinary academy, performed excellently, and after graduation sought out his mentors. He began his apprenticeship in 1994 with Jean Bordier at L’Aubergade, learning the basics of the Escoffier cuisine. He then joined Louis Grondard at Drouant, training in precision and technique. Philippe’s chef career started at Pré Catelan with Frédéric Anton and Michel Roth, first at Lasserre, then at the Ritz Hotel. For the next ten years, he worked with Yannick Alleno at the Scribe Hotel, with whom he was awarded the Bocuse bronze medal at the Bocuse d’Or.
Now for the past two years, Chef Philippe Mille has expressed his great talent at his own Le Parc Restaurant in Domaine Les Crayères, France. Pleasure, generosity and childhood memories are at the heart of his inspiration and his refined sense of all that is best in food has led him to the notable creations that have earned him his two Michelin stars. La VIE – Creative French Cuisine in VIE Hotel Bangkok is honoured to host him and we look forward to the fabulous lunches and dinners he will prepare during his visit.
