As Chef de Cuisine of Felix, Aurélie Altemaire is an accomplished culinarian renowned for both her impeccable cooking skills and exemplary creativity. A French native, Aurélie brings over two decades of experience in kitchens across three continents, and has included key positions at numerous Michelin-starred restaurants.
Aurélie began her professional journey with stints in some of Paris’s most celebrated kitchens, including Le Clovis, La Braisière, and Epicure. A two-year sojourn in the United States followed, where she honed her skills working in roles such as Chef de Partie at L'Orangerie in Los Angeles. Once she had returned to Europe, she joined the famed L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon in London as Head Chef – a position she held for the next nine years, and for which she won copious accolades.
A subsequent appointment as Head Chef for Accor S.A. brought Aurélie into the realm of luxury hotel restaurants. After overseeing the opening of Bokan 37, in London, she made the leap to Asia, where she took the position of Executive Chef at 39 V, in Hong Kong – eventually rebranded as Odyssée. For the next three years, she applied her exacting standards and innovative artistry to her role, before taking the helm at the acclaimed sky-high Felix restaurant at the legendary Grande Dame in January 2023.
