Chef Michael Jetty began his career as a disciplined chef in 1991. He started with an apprenticeship at Maison Lacour studying under Chef Jacqueline Greaud. It is here that he immersed himself in cooking and creating, and he began to develop his culinary talent.
Soon after starting his apprenticeship, he and Eva, the hostess of the restaurant and also John and Jackie Greaud’s daughter, began dating, fell in love, and married.
The two of them now work together to orchestrate the beautiful tradition started by the Greauds. Their ideals of food and dining as an experience much more than sustenance have become a vital thread keeping Maison Lacour thriving.
Chef Jetty clearly illustrates through the traditional style of the dishes that he believes the secret to this experience is letting the ingredients speak for themselves through correct preparation of the dishes. Very simple, straightforward and beautiful.
Together Chef Jetty & his wife Eva have kept the traditions of French cuisine and family heritage alive at Maison Lacour while adding their own touches.
The result is an exquisite dining experience tucked away in Baton Rouge.
