ATLANTA, May 6, 2019 - Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead is pleased to formally welcome Executive Chef Christophe Truchet as the leader of the hotel’s culinary team. Chef Christophe is responsible for the property’s culinary and banquet operations, menu development, concept and programming for the hotel’s signature restaurant, Café & Bar, and oversees in-room dining.
“We are delighted to have Chef Christophe at the heart of Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead’s culinary operation,” said Kerry Hing, general manager of Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead. “Chef Christophe brings extensive experience to his role from our sister property in Beverly Hills and has worked for a roster of globally-acclaimed chefs. He will continue to elevate our hotel’s food and beverage program delivering an exceptional culinary experience for guests within the Waldorf Astoria portfolio.”
Chef Christophe joins Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead with nearly 20 years of experience. Most recently, Chef Christophe served as executive sous chef at Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, where he assisted in running the day-to-day operations for two restaurants, including Jean-Georges Beverly Hills and The Rooftop by JG, and oversaw the hotel’s main kitchen and menu development for special events.
Prior to his role at Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, Chef Christophe held positions at Cafe Del Rey in Los Angeles, at Shangri-La Hotel properties in Shanghai and London and at various restaurants and hotels in Dubai and Hotel Le Bristol in Paris.
Chef Christophe holds a bachelor’s degree in Hotel Business and Restauration with Culinary Production from Technical High School François Rabelais in Lyon, France.
Credited with reinvigorating the Eggs Benedict and inventing the Red Velvet Cake, culinary expertise continues to be a key component of today’s Waldorf Astoria. Today, some of the most famous and Michelin star chefs lead the culinary innovation at Waldorf Astoria hotels globally, such as Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Michael Mina and Chef Fae. Chef Christophe will continue to elevate the brand’s food and beverage offerings through the addition of an Afternoon Tea experience and creation of new banquet and Café and Bar menus at Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead.
