[Luxus+ Magazine] A look back at the many prestigious collaborations of Jean Imbert

Revealed by the cooking show Top Chef broadcast on M6 in 2012, Jean Imbert has been cooking since he was 18 years old, and never ceases to amaze our taste buds. Let’s take a look back at Jean Imbert’s many illustrious collaborations and projects, from the opening of his first restaurant in the 16th arrondissement of Paris to his recent appointment as head of the Plaza Athénée.


Building on his popularity in France and across the Atlantic, the French chef has been named Chef of the Year in 2019 by GQ magazine. This is the result of many long years spent in the kitchen, honing and perfecting his love for it.


At the age of 18, in 1999, he entered into the Institut Bocuse, a hotel school specialising in gastronomic restaurants and the culinary arts. Five years later, he opened his first restaurant in the 16th arrondissement: L’Acajou. It was from this point on that Jean Imbert began his long and exciting career in gastronomic cuisine. Moreover, it is also thanks to this restaurant that his career on the other side of the Atlantic began.
