The evening will also feature a culinary demonstration, tasting, book signing, and meet-and-greet with Chef Tessier.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.




Chef Philip Tessier


About Philip Tessier
Chef Tessier began his training in the kitchen at a young age while growing up in Williamsburg, Virginia. He was interested and motivated to learn new techniques and taste new things. He attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY and after graduation, sought out the best kitchens of France, New York and California to hone his craft.

Over the course of three decades, Tessier worked at some of the world’s most renowned restaurants including Roger Verge’s Le Moulin de Mougins, Eric Ripert’s Le Bernadin, as well as Thomas Keller’s Per Se, Bouchon, and The French Laundry. It was at The French Laundry that Tessier began to train for the pinnacle of culinary achievement, the Olympics of the food world: the Bocuse d’Or.

Training for such an acclaimed event was no simple task, but his hard work paid off. In 2015, Chef Tessier won the Bocuse d’Or Silver Medal, becoming the first American to mount the podium. Two years later, Tessier coached team USA led by Chef Mathew Peters to take gold, giving his book Chasing Bocuse a fairytale ending.

Tessier continues his endeavor to elevate American culinary excellence on the global stage with Hestan Cue. As co-founder and culinary director of Hestan Smart Cooking, he adds culinary expertise to a talented team of engineers and scientists to develop a new platform for cooking in the home.

He is also a culinary partner with Simple Feast and Snake River Farms. Chef Tessier’s philanthropic partnerships include the Ment’or Foundation and No Kid Hungry.
