Executive Chef Roger Paul Michel studied at the Culinary School Bellegarde in his home country of France, where his talents shined from the start—Michel was awarded a certificate designating him the “Best Culinary Student in Ain.” He has since earned numerous other honors, including “Chef of the Year” (BHRCA England); “Best Apprentice in France” semi-finalist (as deemed by a panel of world-renowned Michelin Chefs); two silver medals in the IKA Culinary Olympics; and more.
Chef Michel began his professional career in London in 1970, before being recruited and requested to relocate to the U.S. with Hilton International in 1981. After seven years in the Lowcountry, Michel is no stranger to Savannahians! He continues to awe with his culinary creations, ranging from inspiring the Gingerbread Village to sweeping the Taste of Savannah competition.
Michel’s menus can be tasted at any of the resort’s three restaurants: Aqua Star, Midnight Sun, and the Club Grille.
