Born in Auvergne, France, Bertrand Chemel was introduced to the culinary world at age four, sweeping flour from the floors of the bakery and pastry shop next to his grandmother's house. His official start was under the wing of renowned chef Michel Gaudin at his eponymous destination restaurant in Megève, France. Chemel worked at La Bastide St-Antoine in Grasse, France, and at the Savoy Hotel in London, before relocating to the USA where he honed his culinary style under his mentor, the legendary Chef Daniel Boulud. He served as a line cook in 1999 at Daniel, and enjoyed a stint working as Laurent Tourondel's sous chef at Cello. He eventually landed at Café Boulud in 2003 where he served as chef de cuisine before accepting the position as executive chef at 2941 Restaurant.
