Not many chefs can boast a dining setting as inspiring as the Serengeti savannah, but that is exactly what welcomes Lucas Julien-Vauzelle with his appointment as Executive Chef at Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Tanzania.
In his new role as Executive Chef, Lucas will oversee the culinary teams and operations to serve the Lodge's three restaurants: Maji Bar and Terrace, Boma Grill and Kula's Restaurant.
A culinary-lover since his earliest days, Lucas is also a world traveller, having worked across no fewer than six countries before arriving in Tanzania – ranging from Australia to the Cayman Islands.
Lucas Julien-Vauzelle also dedicated almost a year of his life to the recovery efforts of the Haiti earthquake in 2010.
It was in Haiti that Lucas first became passionate about delivering training to others, as he worked to guide kitchen teams with limited experience re-establish themselves after the disaster.
