Chef Tingaud Guest Chef for A Meal to Remember

PASCAL TINGAUD, Chef de Cuisine, Moët & Chandon, Eparnay, France

Pascal Tingaud always knew that he wanted to be a chef. After all, his father and grandfather were chefs. Home for him was the family restaurant, L'Auberge de Conde, a two-Michelin star restaurant in La Ferte-sous-Jouarre, France. Much of his youth was spent in its kitchen developing a love for the culinary arts. At age 16, he entered the Ecole Hoteliere Jean Drouant in Paris to begin his formal training. Since then, this amiable Frenchman has travelled the world to cook at some of the most prestigious restaurants in the industry, such as Les Freres Troisgros in Roanne, a three-Michelin star restaurant. He was also chef to former French President Giscard d'Estaing. He is now the appointed chef at Chateau de Saran, home of famed champagne label Moet & Chandon, where he works to create new food pairings with the tipple. The historic Moet family residence now hosts private guests such as visiting royalties and dignitaries.

A Meal to Remember benefits Meals On Wheels Atlanta. The black-tie gala will be held Friday, November 4, at the St. Regis Atlanta.
