Infusing Hawaii into French cuisine
Alexandre Trancher, Executive Chef of Hawaii’s only AAA Five Diamond and Forbes 5 Star restaurant La Mer, is responsible for the continued success and influence of the French culinary program at Halekulani.
Trancher began his career in France, with an extensive background in Michelin starred restaurants located throughout the world including Greece, Paris, and Japan.
Being in Hawaii since 2012, Trancher has incorporated many of the Hawaii traditions into his lifestyle and cooking.
“We dined at LaMer to celebrate our 47th anniversary, because our son and daughter in law had spent their honeymoon at Halekulani and had said it was the most elegant dining they had ever experienced. They were so right! The ambience, service and meal was the best ever and I cant rate it high enough!”
