18 May 2010

Vincent Menager has joined the Sofitel London St James as its new executive chef. Menager is expected to work closely with consultant chef Albert Roux and will oversee the hotel's entire food operation, including Brasserie Roux.

Menager joins the hotel from Sofitel Sukhumvit in Thailand, where he was part of the pre-opening team.

Originally from Brive la Gaillarde, in France, Menager received his culinary degree from the Hotel School of Souillac, Périgord.

After an internship at Frédéric Anton's two-Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Pré Catelan in Paris, Menager started his career in 1998 with Alain Ducasse at Il Cortile, a one-Michelin-starred Italian restaurant at the Castille Sofitel Demeure hotel in Paris.

In 1999, Menager joined the Sofitel Le Parc as chef de partie at Le Relais du Parc restaurant where Ducasse was consultant chef. In 2000, he moved to the Sofitel Le Faubourg to work with Alain Dutournier at the Café Faubourg.

After three years, Menager went to Sofitel New York as sous chef for the restaurant Gaby before being promoted to executive chef in 2005.

General manager of Sofitel London St James, Denis Dupart said: "We are delighted to welcome Vincent to the team. He has a long history with Sofitel hotels and brings with him a wealth of experience and a passion for French cuisine with an innovative touch."
