Noah French

Pastry Chef Conceptions

Noah French has enjoyed a rich and satisfying career traveling the world and the U.S., perfecting desserts, training and mentoring other pastry chefs, and applying himself to absorbing the best and latest the professional culinary world has to offer.

A New Jersey native, Noah graduated from the Culinary Institute of America with a specialty in pastry, and began working for Resorts International Hotel and Casino in Atlanta City, followed by stops at Walt Disney World Resorts, The Palace Hotel in South Africa’s Sun City, and the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan.

In 1996 he was personally recruited by the renowned fusion style chef/restaurateur Roy Yamaguchi to take the position of Corporate Pastry Chef for Yamaguchi’s six restaurants in Hawai’i, in the wake of the pending rapid expansion of the Roy’s family of restaurants across the U.S.  Noah’s duties entailed not only personally opening another thirty Roy’s restaurants from San Francisco to New York, and Chicago to Texas, Arizona and Florida, but also implementation of innovative dessert menus on a multi-unit scale, not to mention constant training and retraining of his pastry chef staff in every location.

After twelve years with Roy’s, in 2008 Noah changed home addresses from San Diego to Miami Beach, where he is currently serves as Executive Pastry Chef of the luxury Setai Hotel in Miami Beach.
