Laurent Dubourg, Chef
Evans Street Station, the award-winning restaurant located in downtown Tecumseh, has welcomed a talented new chef, Laurent Dubourg. With an accomplished fine dining career highlighting many impressive culinary establishments around the world, he is settling right into his new post at Evans Street.
Chef Laurent hails from Normandy, France, and began cooking at the age of 16. After a two-year apprenticeship program, he attended school and worked for several esteemed chefs. His work experience has included many established restaurants and large scale operations in the North and South of France, Thailand, Qatar, and the United States. He now calls Michigan home, and notes that the climate, the land, even cooking here, all remind him of his native France.
Dubourg came to the US in 2008 as a Chef Instructor with the Culinary Institute LeNôtre in Houston, Texas. Shortly after arriving in America, he received his Certified Executive Chef certification with the American Culinary Federation (ACF). His vast experience in the hospitality industry encompasses many global cuisines in fine dining restaurants, private clubs, hotels, as well as inspiring young culinarians as an educator. Chef Laurent is very hands on in the kitchen and speaks four languages. The Evans Street team is thrilled to have such an accomplished chef on board in Tecumseh!
Chef Laurent has superior leadership and team building skills, which result in consistent product and service. Dedicated to providing gracious hospitality, he is committed to creating a memorable dining experience for all guests.
