The passion of creation

Frédéric Jaunault

Meilleur ouvrier de France

Early 2011

The professional career of Frédéric Jaunault is that of a man who not only knows how to cook and create cuisines, but also to share his know-how which has been cultivated since September 1977, where he demonstrated his early passion for French gastronomy and terroir by joining the ‘La Chesnay du Roy’ restaurant in Paris as an apprentice cook.


Frederic’s passion is inherited from his grandfather, a farmer and wholesaler at the Food Market of Paris (Les Halles de Paris), and his Breton father, a chef. With a rich personality, great inventiveness and an insatiable curiosity, Frédéric Jaunault has the qualities which form the bedrock of his success: rigour, consistency, hard work, mastery of the materials, interpersonal skill, in addition to exceptional culinary creativity, a desire to pass on his knowledge to younger generations, a fresh perspective on the fruits and vegetables being his particular specialism.
