A native of Provence, France, Chef Florian V. Hugo’s curiosity and desire for “well cooked” food using the freshest ingredients began at an early age when he refused to eat school cafeteria lunches. He learnt a lot under the legendary Chef Paul Bocuse at Institut Paul Bocuse in Ecully, France. Following this, Chef Hugo worked at the Alain Ducasse restaurants in Paris, Monaco and London, before becoming the Sous Chef at Alain Ducasse at the Essex House Hotel in New York in 2000. In November 2005, The New York Times rated his culinary talent, quite simply, “Excellent”.
