Born and schooled in Le-Mans, France, chef Didier Montarou embarked on his culinary journey at the age of 20, combining the two things he loved, cooking and discovering the world. Since then his role with Intercontinental Hotels has taken him all around the world on many culinary adventures, from his home country of France to Spain, England, Columbia, Venezuela and various parts of the United States, including Boston, which he has called home since the InterContinental Boston’s opening in 2007.
Upon opening he received the award for Intercontinental Hotels “Best Chef in America”. For more than a decade he has overseen the hotel’s comprehensive food and beverage program, including banquets serving 30,000 square feet of event space. His passion for food, respecting the fresh and varied produce available in the market, is what drives him every day to create quality cuisine.
He, along with his team of culinary professionals, are committed to providing fresh contemporary dishes, which have a homemade feel, using local, seasonal ingredients, all to be enjoyed in the comfort of the InterContinental Boston.
