Aurelien Legeay of Grand Velas Los Cabos Named Master Chef of France

By Lauren Jade Hill

Grand Velas Los Cabos has announced the latest accolade to place the luxury resort in the spotlight. The prestigious Maîtres Cuisiniers de France association, of which all members are French nationals, has selected the head chef Aurelien Legeay of the resort’s Piaf Restaurant to be a part of this accomplished collective, naming him one of the Master Chefs of France.

Selected by their peers, each chef within the association is regarded for their exceptional skill in culinary techniques and finesse in the execution of French culinary arts. Each chef is trained at institutes of Michelin-starred caliber and are lauded for reshaping modern French cuisine in America.

To date, just 10 chefs in Mexico have attained this prestigious title, including Velas Resorts’ Culinary Director, Michel Mustière, and now the chef Aurelien Legeay.

Chef Legeay first embarked on his culinary career in France, before traveling throughout Mexico and the US, stopping in cities such as Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles to continue his culinary education and broaden his depth of knowledge.

Throughout this journey, Legeay gained experience in kitchens at a number of renowned fine dining restaurants, including La Taverne du Mont d’Arbois at the Domaine du Mont d’Arbois, Relais & Châteaux, and Piaf at the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya where he acted as chef de cuisine under Mustière.

To sample the chef’s cuisine for yourself, pay a visit to Grand Velas Los Cabos for a memorable meal at Piaf Restaurant.
