|I love the artistic touch on LVE|
According to Executive Chef, Gautier Solomon (from France), "I was born in Normandy and grew
up around food. My grandmother owned a restaurant and three (3) generations of my family work
there and that is where I developed my love for food. I've worked in restaurants in France and
Switzerland, and now am sharing my expertise in European food in Kota Kinabalu."
"I've been in KK for four (4) months now and I love the local people, culture and food especially
the durian. I decided to join the Think Tank Creations group because it is a Chef driven company
that priorities good food and service. I want people to enjoy the different style of cooking, great
atmosphere and just have fun with family and friends."
