The French Kitchen philosophy comes from its founder Laurent Courtois. Born in the Loire Valley, France, Laurent’s love of food started at an early age with mealtimes and good food being an important part of everyday life. Laurent spent the first ten years of his professional career in his home country working in restaurants around the Loire area before moving to the 5* Meridien Hotel in Paris where he stayed for five years. In 1998 Laurent came to England and worked at Michelin starred restaurants in Ludlow. Passionate about cooking, and with over twenty years considerable experience, Laurent established The French Kitchen in 2012.
