“My style is a mix of contemporary and classical. I like people to be able to come to my restaurant and recognise dishes from their childhood, although I will have added a contemporary twist”, muses Michelin-star Celebrity French Chef Nicolas Isnard.

Head chef of L’Auberge de la Charme – a one Michelin-star restaurant in Burgundy, France, he will awe guests with his fresh approach of exquisite flavours and presentation to old school French cuisine.

Nicolas started his career in the south of France in Avignon not too far away from his birth town of Hyères in the Provence and has since worked with many renowned chefs in France. He was the Chef de Cuisine for L’Auberge du Vieux Puits under three Michelin-star Chef Gilles Goujon for three years from 2002 before joining Le Chateau de Curzay where he re-launched the culinary direction of the Chateau to the level of “haute gastronomie” and his efforts was rewarded with a first Michelin star.

Always sensitive to his surroundings, Nicolas’ approach to food is resonant of the experiences his senses behold. His distinctive style focuses on “cuisine du terroir” – a return to traditional rustic flavours with an emphasis on using quality provincial produce. This was also part of the reason for choosing the house of Auberge de la Charme in Prenois (next to Dijon) to start his very own restaurant with partner, David Lecomte and their wives in June 2008. They had fallen in love immediately with the house and the region (Burgundy) that is abundant in vegetation, local produce and especially the sunshine.

With Provencal origins, Nicolas’ cuisine is essentially influenced by the Mediterranean region combined with the best produce from Burgundy. Re-inventing classic and traditional Burgundian dishes with modern techniques, his creations are ingeniously titillating to the discerning diners of today. His natural talent and being a relentless advocate of the use of premium local produce, handpicking the best suppliers to work with in obtaining the finest possible products, helped Nicolas garner a Michelin star for L’Auberge de la Charme in March 2009, soon after opening.
