Calling his tour the Gastronomical Wine Tour of France, Chef Jenatton will lead a group of 10 people from Paris to Plan dÂOrgon, near Avignon from August 6-13. Having a personal translator with expertise in food and wine as well as a gourmet personal chef gives the travelers an inside track that they couldn't get on their own. Plus, Jenatton has built up wine contacts in Chateauneuf du Pape, adding to the appeal for wine connoisseurs. With cooking facilities au chateau, Chef Jenatton will be preparing gourmet dinners using local French ingredients.
ÂI'm really excited about this aspect of the trip, as I'll be able to use the wonderful fresh, high quality ingredients found only in France, then I get to prepare them in the breathtaking backdrop of a 15th century chateau.Â
A native of France, Chef Pierre Jenatton began his culinary career in France in 1971 by working in the family-owned pastry shop. He then earned both a pastry and culinary degree in Annecy, working first in a ski resort in the French Alps. In 1983, Jenatton first came to the US where he was the Executive Chef for Croissant Royale, the largest bakery chain in Dallas. He then moved to San Francisco, where he became the Executive Chef for La Reserve, a four-star continental French restaurant in San Mateo.
In 1985, Jenatton relocated to the Denver/Boulder area where he spent the next five years working for the Red Lion Inn and the Boulderado Hotel, among others. In between chef jobs, Jenatton created the concept of a personal chef service that was launched with a successful review by the Boulder Daily Camera. He then moved to the Monterey/Carmel area in 1990 where he developed his expertise in food and wine pairing, hosting winemaker dinners with Durney and Bonny Doon, among others.
Finally, in 1992, he moved to Boston where he has operated his personal chef service, Le Chef Mobile, as a full-time operation ever since. According to the Boston Globe, Âa personal chef like Pierre Jenatton dishes up convenience, luxurious ease and restaurant-style meals.Â
