Chef de Latour

Chef Jean Paul Lourdes' globally inspired, seasonally focused cooking is taking Restaurant Latour in an exciting and radical new direction. The chef has re-imagined the dining experience to be a tantalizing progression of flavors and techniques. Diners can choose from either the Farmer’s Feast, a vegetable-centered meal, or Grazing, which is protein-driven, as either a 5 or 7 course tasting menu. The design of the dinner menu includes a panel showcasing the ingredients that will be served during the month, with the day’s menus reflecting what ingredients are of the highest quality at the moment. All of these travels and the groundbreaking chefs he has worked under have formed the foundation for an adventurous, creative style of cooking. But under the surface you will find that Lourdes is more than a chef, having been a professional rugby player, a holder of a Master of Science in Food Science and Nutrition, a children’s book author and perfume designer.
