People who have worked with Chef Stéphane have described him as “Passionate and professional, and a joy to work with.” Chef Stéphane is definitely very passionate about food. He believes that in every country, people meet at the table, with food and that is the uniting factor which is representative of the country and region, and that food brings people and cultures together.
Chef Stéphane joined Le Cordon Bleu in Ottawa Canada in 2016. What he is said to like about this reputable culinary arts school is that there are students from 5 continents around the world. That gives students a great experience and an international exposure, learning by sharing each other’s unique experiences from around the globe. As part of his desire to learn more about Asia, he took the opportunity to travel to this region by filling a vacancy in Sunway Le Cordon Blue in Malaysia, through a transfer from the Ottawa school, as Executive Chef and Cuisine Chef Instructor.
“The most important for me is to plan. For sure. You make a journey, I’m sure you have a plan. I’d go to visit this city, I would take this bus. I would take this train. You need to have a plan. It would be the same in a kitchen.” - Chef Stéphane Frelon
