William Ledeuil’s passion was sparked in his childhood, spent in the French region of the Loiret enjoying nature and good things. Though the world of food wasn’t foreign to him – his father was a butcher – he initially destined himself for a career in business management. In 1984, chance led his steps to Ferrandi, the leading French culinary institute, and he learned the ropes of the trade with starred chefs Alain Dutournier and Guy Savoy. He then worked over a decade with the latter before taking the leap of opening a restaurant of his own. By his side, his wife Marie-Christine was on board with the adventure from the onset. Ze Kitchen Galerie thus opened its doors in 2001, in surroundings designed by the painter Daniel Humair. In 2008, William Ledeuil received his first Michelin star, and in 2009 he opened a second venue, Kitchen Galerie Bis, aka KGB for those in the know. In 2010, he was elected Chef of the year by the French gastronomy reference publication, Gault&Millau. In 2017, we find him at the helm of a new, third address devoted to pasta dishes: Kitchen Ter(re). William Ledeuil is the chef-owner of all three of his restaurants.
