Alex is renowned for his sensitivity and refinement in the art of preparing and serving food. Informed by his childhood in Atlanta, and extensive travel from a very young age in France, Alex’s signature style combines the relaxed, warm-but-never-stuffy elegance of the genteel South and a continental élan that captures the essence of gracious living.
Alex’s first book, My Beverly Hills Kitchen: Classic Southern Cooking with a French Twist, garnered editorial raves from The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Departures, Southern Living, O, House Beautiful, and The New York Times. Alex has been a frequent guest on The Today Show, The Chew, Access Hollywood, CBS Morning and more than 60 local television broadcasts.
Alex trained at Le Cordon Bleu, Paris, and Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School, which became the Institute of Culinary Education. As a cooking student, he apprenticed in the kitchens of Andre Soltner at Lutèce in New York, and Michel Guerard at Eugenie-Les-Bains in France. Alex travels 40 weeks a year: cooking, lecturing, and entertaining, for parties of 5 to 5000. When he is not traveling he lives between New York City and Los Angeles. He is writing his second book.
