Jean-François Bélair, Executive Chef

Estérel’s Executive Chef, Jean-François Bélair, brings to the table an exceptional passion for the culinary arts and an impressive list of credentials. A lover of rare ingredients, he strives to make them the ultimate stars of each one of his creations. Chef Bélair avoids superfluous and unnecessary garnishes, and instead, focuses on the simplicity of ingredients by using colours, tastes, textures, and aromas to highlight the delicate nuances of the flavours.

His experience speaks for itself. He obtained his diploma at the age of 20, and went to train out West, at Tofino’s Wickaninnish Inn, a proud member of Relais & Châteaux. Following his time in Tofino, he went to France to perfect his technique in Michelin Star establishments. He returned to Quebec to take the reins of La Pinsonnière Relais & Châteaux, in the Charlevoix region; where he also completed a sommelier course. In the past decade, he has been an executive chef at Hôtel Place d’Armes, in Montreal, and at Château Bonne Entente in Québec, where he directed the acclaimed Monte Cristo and La Tempête Golf Club restaurants.

He has also been head of research and development for Groupe Restos Plaisirs, which includes establishments such as the Cochon Dingue, the Jaja, and the Paris Grill. He has contributed to more than 15 cookbooks, and was a guest judge on the television program Les Chefs.

Estérel Resort is proud to welcome Jean-François to its team, and wishes all of its guests a phenomenal dining experience.
