OUR APPROACH

THE CHEF

Chef Mark Courseille’s passion for the culinary arts started at a tender age. Before he was old enough to vote, his heart and mind had decided that a chef's coat was truly meant for him.

Originally a native of Bordeaux in Southwest France, Chef Courseille decided to attend the Culinary High School of Talence, where he graduated in 1999.

After graduation, Mark continued his culinary journey in the kitchens of many high profile restaurants, including Citronelle by Michel Richard, Le Paradou by Yannick Cam, and Le Saint-James (Relais & Chateaux) in Bouliac, France, among others.

Chef Courseille has certainly earned the recognition and artistic respect of some of the world’s leading chefs, restaurateurs, and culinary experts.
