GILLES DUMONT - HEAD CHEF

With 19 years of experience in the kitchen under his belt, Gilles Dumont joins maze Grill as Head Chef - a title he's held since the ripe age of 17. Born and raised in Belgium, Gilles started a career while barely fresh from primary school. He joined his first kitchen at a hotel outside Brussels, where the owner saw such potential in his young assistant that he sponsored him through cooker school. While in school, Gilles completed a six-month stage at three Michelin-starred 'Comme Chez Soi', under acclaimed Chef Pierre Wynants and then returned to the hotel as Head Chef at just 17. During his early twenties, Gilles continued to blaze a trail across Belgium with a series of Head Chef positions, consistently impressing with skilled techniques and a confident, controlled command over the kitchen. In the UK, he has diversified with senior kitchen roles, such as Head Pastry Chef for Somerset House, Head Chef at Liberty and Head Chef at French restaurant Aubaine in Mayfair. The most recent position Gilles held makes the perfect segue for his new appointment, having spent the past two years as Head Chef of two Gaucho Argentine steak restaurants. "Coming from Belgium, steak has a special resonance for me, so I always treat the king of meats with the utmost respect" Gilles says.
