apprenticing and working at some of the most highly regarded restaurants in France. Among venues where he developed his art and skill were La Mère Guy in Lyon, Les Santons in Grimaud and Pierre Hiély in Avignon, all two-Michelin-starred establishments. After having received his first Michelin star in 1983 at his Les Caves Henri IV in Aix-en-Provence, by 1986 Chef JeanMarc opened Le Clos de la Violette, also in Aix-en-Provence, where as chef and owner he would earn his second star in 1999.
In addition to two Michelin Guide stars, the chef has received three Gault & Millau Guide toques including for his La Villa Madie restaurant in Cassis. Of late Chef Jean-Marc has gained yet more acclaim for his work as consultant and chef at renowned Renaissance Hotel and Le Clos restaurant in Aix-en-Provence.
