Hospitality Services mourns the loss of esteemed chef Jacques Charette, a dear friend and avid supporter of HORECA Lebanon.
Known as a visionary man, Charette and four colleagues founded L’Académie Nationale de Cuisine in 1977 with a mission to support new talents. He also held the position of honorary president of L’Académie Nationale de Cuisine and director of Toque d’Or magazine.
Speaking about Charette’s tragic passing, Jean Marc Mompach, president of l’Académie Nationale de Cuisine, said:
“L’Académie Nationale de Cuisine has lost its guide. Thank you, Jacques, for your fraternity, humanism, generosity, charisma and passion.”
L’Academie Nationale de Cuisine des Hauts de France wrote: “His loss will be deeply felt as he joins the family of great chefs who wrote the French Gastronomy’s history and made sure that the values behind our craft be transmitted from generation to generation.”
