Reaching the pinnacle of his career, after receiving his 80th Hat, and with the timely handover of his eponymous restaurant, Jacques Reymond Restaurant to his sous chefs, whom have re-opened as Woodland House at the beginning of 2014, chef restaurateur Jacques Reymond continues to embark on culinary adventures. Involved as a partner and menu developer and designer in the family businesses of Bistro Gitan and L’Hotel Gitan, Jacques is busy mentoring the two very busy venues. As well as spending time in Fiji with two consultancies at luxury resorts Turtle Island and Nanuku, Jacques is also involved with menu consultations, event and guest chef appearances, and his high profile collaboration with convenience cuisine dish’d. Aside from his vast experience, Jacques’ youthful energy and drive is as infectious as ever and has caused him to become a highly sought ambassador of commercial events and products, and to take up a range of appropriate endorsement opportunities. Not one for rest, Jacques is continuing his support of the industry by focusing on sharing his experiences and knowledge with likeminded people.
