ON THE HUNT FOR PERFECTION Olivier Nasti was born and grew up in Morvillars in northeast France. Even as a youngster, he was keen to earn a living by delivering newspapers, working in a bakery, and selling stolen fruit from the surrounding orchards and trout caught in the local pond. He attended Morvillars College before embarking on an apprenticeship at Château Servin (2*) in Belfort in 1984 where he nurtured his passion for cooking. Between then and 2000, he continued training at the Sheraton in Luxembourg, with Jean-Yves Schillinger in Colmar, with Olivier Roellinger in Cancale and with the Haeberlin family at the Auberge de l’Ill, the famous Michelin-starred restaurant in Alsace. In 1993 he took over a wine bar in Eguisheim and finally, in 2000, he acquired Le Chambard in Kaysersberg where he now heads Le Chambard’s kitchens and, in particular, his 2-star Michelin restaurant.
