Takeo Yamazaki is now entering in his 14th year as head chef of Yoshi, within the premises of the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo.
Takeo started working as a cook in a small town in Tokyo’s suburbs when he was a teenager. Passionate about cooking, he integrated the Osaka’s hotelier school to acquire the needed experience.
A few years later, he joins the team of Le Château alongside Paul Bocuse.
This experience in France is an eye opener for the young chef. His meeting with Joël Robuchon is a kick off for his career. He returns to Japan to open Joël Robuchon’s L’Atelier in Tokyo and handles the openings of L’Atelier in London and Honk Kong. The degree of complicity and trust between the most renowned chef in the world and his apprentice is growing stronger as the years go by.
In 2008, he becomes the Head Chef of Yoshi and two years later the restaurant was awarded a star in the Michelin Guide which still shines to this day. Takeo has now become an expert in mixing Japanese and European flavors and he draws his inspiration through his numerous trips and visits abroad.
Two of his signatures’ dishes are praised by the clients: EBI SHINJO (shrimp balls with kombu) and GHINDARA (black cod marinated 72 hours). Takeo Yamazaki has now made Yoshi the best Japanese Restaurant in the French Riviera.
