Born in Nice, on the French Riviera, Jean Philippe Blondet, has been working alongside Alain Ducasse for over a decade. His first role with Alain Ducasse was interestingly at Spoon at Sanderson in London, before joining 3-Michelin starred Le Louis XV-Alain Ducasse at l’Hôtel de Paris in Monaco, Alain Ducasse’s iconic restaurant.
Before returning to London, Jean Philippe held the position of Sous-Chef at Spoon in Hong Kong, further adding to his international experience and satisfying his curiosity and interest in cuisines of the world.
In September 2013, he joined the team at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester as Sous-Chef with Jocelyn Herland to quickly progress to Head Chef within 2 years. Jean Philippe Blondet became Executive Chef in January 2016.
Jean Philippe Blondet interprets Alain Ducasse’s cuisine in London in a contemporary and refined way. In keeping with Alain Ducasse’s philosophy, the ingredients are the key elements. Jean Philippe only uses the freshest and most seasonal produce, strictly sourced for their quality and provenance. The sourcing of the products is crucial. After, comes the emotion given by any team members plating the dishes.
There are no ‘signature’ dishes that I could mention. All dishes that I have created have been added to the menu because I wanted to tell a story. For example, recently I created a starter with beetroot and mackerel. The idea came from memories I had during my first meal with my in-laws. I chose only two simple products and added a twist with wasabi.
As one of the UK’s most prestigious restaurants and awarded three Michelin Stars for over 10 years, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester offers contemporary French cuisine.
