Maxime Bilet


Maxime Bilet received a BA in cre­ative writ­ing, lit­er­a­ture, and visual arts from Skidmore College. Bilet then grad­u­ated with high­est hon­ors from the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. He com­pleted a stage at Jack’s Luxury Oyster Bar and was quickly hired to the head chef posi­tion there by Jack Lamb. Moving to London, he accepted a stage with Heston Blumenthal’s devel­op­ment team at The Fat Duck. Just prior to join­ing the culi­nary team as head chef for recipe research and devel­op­ment at The Cooking Lab, Bilet trained as sous chef to open the London branch of Auberge de L’Ile.
