Isnard hails from the south of France but formed his respect for ingredients and culinary foundation in the kitchen of his Italian grandmother. From an early age, he enjoyed innovation and experimented to create his own variations of traditional recipes.

His dedication to his craft led him to pursue culinary training, an effort that culminated in an apprenticeship at the renowned Relais & Château. From there, he earned his stripes at several Michelin-starred restaurants, all in quick succession. By 25, he was Head Chef of Auberge de Vieux Puits, which currently holds three stars in the Michelin Guide.

Isnard's first Michelin star came within just a year of his opening of Auberge de la Charme in Prenois; a project he undertook with his wife Jessica Jean and partners David le Comte and Cecile Sagory.

Isnard also authored the book 'L'œuf' with le Comte – a cookbook dedicated to eggs, containing 30 transformative recipes. His discipline, creativity, and unique culinary voice have brought him around the world, and now, to the kitchens of The Reflexions in the heart of Bangkok.

Although a frequent traveler, sharing his passion for food with diners around the world, Chef Nicolas expressed a particular joy in returning to Bangkok, and promised "to give an excellent epicurean journey."
