Nicolas Valmagna has been executive chef at Tassili for five years, during which time the restaurant has been awarded Four AA Rosette status.

After leaving catering college, Nicolas amassed an array of culinary knowledge – and air miles – from his travels to America, Switzerland and New Zealand. Unsurprisingly, living and working in these countries introduced him to new cultures and ingredients, many of which he now uses in dishes in Tassili.

With Nicolas and his sous-chef, Luis, constantly creating new dishes, the menu changes regularly, and the team are always trying out new flavour combinations, such as crab with yuzu gel which features on the Taste Jersey menu.
