Everyone at Amandine loves good food and all the things associated with sitting down and enjoying a great tasting meal with family and friends. In fact we think it's one of the greatest joys in life. That's why we do what we do - because great food matters. We are so passionate about spreading the love of good food that our mission is to provide the best possible chef for anyone wanting to eat well wherever they are and whatever their requirements may be.
We believe that a good cook has the power to make people truly happy with their food, and that’s what our chefs are here to do – to spread a little bit of food happiness by making each and every one of your meals an experience to remember.
Amandine was founded by food fanatic Kate Emery. Previously, Kate was a board director of one of London’s leading advertising agencies, and the founder and Managing Director of a successful start up. These two roles led her to be named as one of the Young Business Leaders of the Year by Who’s Who in 2010.
Having spent 15 years building her career in London Kate decided it was time to follow her heart and move to the South of France to start her own business. The decision was partly personal – her husband Julien is from Nice – and professional, as her overriding passion has always been for food and wine, so much so that she is well on her way to becoming a Master of Wine.
Her love of good food combined with her business flair resulted in the launch of Amandine in 2011 in Nice, and its subsequent expansion across the globe with offices now in London, Fort Lauderdale and in the near future - New York.
