Maximilien Acier

Cocotte's Chef

“The allure of culinary arts has always been irresistible, constantly beckoning me to the kitchen.”

Chef Maximilien brings a delightful blend of cultural influences to the culinary table at Cocotte. With roots in both Lao-Thai and French heritage, his palate was nurtured by an array of flavors from an early age.


Growing up surrounded by a vibrant Lao community in Paris, Chef Maximilien cultivated a profound appreciation for food. His culinary adventure began with the comforting dishes prepared by his father and the delectable treats from his grandmothers and aunties.


As he matured, Chef Maximilien's curiosity led him to explore different cuisines. He first pursued engineering studies to honor his family's wishes, but his heart was always in the kitchen. Experimenting with South East Asian and French fusion, he discovered his true passion.


After a brief detour in computer engineering, Chef Maximilien decided to follow his heart and pursued his culinary dream. Under esteemed sushi chef Shoji Kageyama, a family friend, he explored the art of gastronomy and Japanese discipline, igniting a passion for his true calling. At the prestigious school Ferrandi, he honed his culinary prowess under exceptional chefs like Fabrice Huet.


Guided by esteemed chefs Matthieu Charriaud at Richer, and later Chefs Geoffrey Langagne and Jared Phillips at Café Compagnon, he honed his skills and refined his craft. With hard work and determination, he earned a place as the Chef at Cocotte.


Today, Chef Maximilien's creations reflect the beauty of global fusion. Each dish is thoughtfully crafted, combining spices and flavors from diverse cultures, creating a symphony of tastes that tantalize the senses. With his culinary expertise, he invites you to savor the love and dedication he pours into every plate at Cocotte.
