Kei Kobyashi is from Nagano, Japan, where he was born into a family of chefs. He honed his precision cooking skills mainly in the French restaurants of Japan before he chose to leave for France to further his develop his interest in this French cuisine when he was only 21, completely unworried by the prospect of living in a foreign country with such a different culture.
He aimed for experience and he worked with some of the top chefs of the country, at l’Auberge du Vieux Puits (now a 3 Michelin star restaurant), Le Prieuré in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon (1 Michelin star), Le Cerf in Alsace (2 Michelin stars) and finally seven years at Alain Ducasse in Paris (3 Michelin stars), where he became a master in French cuisine.
Kei travelled everywhere throughout France, exploring tucked away villages and havens, in his quest to become the ultimate French chef in France. Kei’s dreams were realised when the doors of his very own restaurant were opened in 2011, and less than a year later, it was awarded a coveted 1 Michelin Star in The 2012 Michelin Guide Awards and Kei became a rising star chef in French cuisine. www.restaurant-kei.fr
