Jasper Allen is the head chef of Chateaunyc, a French-inspired bistro in New York City. He has been working in the restaurant industry for over 15 years and his experience spans everything from high-end catering to running his own small cafes. His passion for cooking began when he was a child, as he grew up watching his mother prepare meals and dreaming of one day having his own kitchen.
Jasper’s career first began at an Italian restaurant in Brooklyn where he cooked under the tutelage of an experienced chef. He learned how to master Italian cuisine, before moving on to other cuisines such as French and American. After several years at this restaurant, Jasper decided it was time for him to take the next step and open his own place.
