Chef André shares his artistry through hands-on teaching and career counseling with advanced students. He began his career at the age of 15 at the Hôtel du Parc, Mulhouse, in his native Alsace and later became chef-owner of New York City's legendary Lutèce, which achieved a four-star rating from the New York Times. Chef André has received more than 25 awards, including the French government's prestigious Officier du Mérite National, the Chevalier du Mérite Agricole, the James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award, and, most recently, the Légion d'Honneur. The co-author of The Lutèce Cookbook, Chef André has served for more than 20 years as Délegué Général of the Master Chefs of France.
