Chef Andre Rochat, long known as the culinary father of Las Vegas, arrived on the Strip long before Wolfgang Puck and his contemporaries. And when he did, he put his culinary mark on the desert, much to the delight of local and visiting diners alike. Chef Rochat, a man who has accomplished so much, has three award-winning restaurants in Las Vegas, an impressive and extensive cognac collection, and a reputation for having created the fine cuisine that is now so prevalent in Las Vegas. With all that, you might expect him to have a large ego. He doesn't, however. Not even a hint of one. TravelsinTaste.com met up with Chef Rochat during our last trip to Las Vegas and spent a significant amount of time with him, discussing Alize, the Las Vegas dining scene, culinary arts in general and what's next for him on his culinary journey. The chef could not have been more heartfelt or kind. It's truly amazing when you see someone at the top of his game who has such a sense of warmth and kindness; it's his love of the profession that is truly evident in everything he does, from the thoughtful design of his restaurants to the impeccable detail of both his restaurant amenities and his epicurean delights.

Chef Rochat changes his menu twice a year, once for the fall and winter seasons, when he tends to serve more game and heavier sauces, and again in the spring and summer, when he tends to serve a lighter menu that includes fresh vegetables and seasonal fruits.
