About Arthaud Caldairou-bellon

Arthaud is a passionate cook who has been in the kitchen since he was a kid. After studying history and communication, he became head of communication at a fashion company in Paris. Not long after, he decided his heart was in the kitchen and set out on the path to become a chef.

He received his culinary education in Marseille, France and also held a long-term internship at Le Moulin de Vernegues, a Relais & Chateaux property in Provence. After working in several restaurants in France and as a private cook in New York City, Arthaud opened his own restaurant in Paris where he cooked traditional, seasonal “grandmother cuisine”—the kind of food that brings together people and warms the heart.

After 3.5 years, Arthaud yearned to explore different types of cuisines and decided to move to Thailand. There he learned traditional Thai cuisine and worked for a Thai-European resort as well as helped create the menu for another local restaurant. After 10 months in Thailand, Arthaud is now living and working in Switzerland as a private chef. He brings a unique worldly perspective to his cooking, which now has French, American, Thai, and Swiss influences.
