Guillaume Bracaval

Chef de Cuisine

Born in a tiny village in northern France, Chef Guillaume Bracaval found his earliest inspiration in his family’s vegetable gardens and farmyard. It was there that he learned to love and respect the origins of ingredients, while in his mother’s kitchen he delighted in kneading, stirring, roasting and baking. Now, at est, Bracaval presents innovative French cuisine, inspired by a deep respect for produce from the Japanese terroir.

“A good chef has to think like an artist. My creative spark can come from anywhere – from the market, from a little ramen shop or even from my wife’s Japanese cooking at home.”

Michele Abbatemarco

Pastry Chef

From the vibrant markets of Monferrato in Italy to the elite Michelin-starred kitchens of Europe and Japan, Pastry Chef Michele Abbatemarco has been on a fascinating culinary journey ever since he was a child. While Michele’s foundation in pastry-making is decidedly European, the move to Japan changed his perspective, leading to a years-long process of studying local ingredients, understanding Japanese culture and reviewing his personal recipes.

“Tastes are like poems that speak to our palate. Just like with art, we can experience emotions with a dish. If that feeling becomes a lasting memory, then my work is completed.”
