What's Cooking: Vietnam's Le Beaulieu's New Chef de Cuisine

One of Vietnam's oldest restaurants, Le Beaulieu, a part of Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, has appointed Denis Groison as its chef de cuisine.

Prior to this appointment, Groison was chef de cuisine at the Raffles Hotel Singapore, as well as chef at Le Dome du Marais in Paris. He has also served as sous chef to the two-Michelin starred Restaurant Guy Lassausaie.
