360 Chef Series: Chef Laurent Brouard – Bistro Du Vin

Why did you decide to become a chef? It was around when I was 14, when I was inspired by my grandfather who was running a delicatessen. Ever since, I have never once regretted my decision – there’s so much joy in cooking for others and seeing them happy and satisfied after a meal! Did you go to culinary school?

[INTERVIEW] Clare Haxby, Artist
