Elis Bond was planning a career as a graphic designer when he discovered his true passion for cooking. At 21, he opened a restaurant in Paris specializing in traditional Creole cuisine until he decided to embark on a new entrepreneurial project with his wife Vanessa.
They are jointly launching an event catering and home chef activity. It was then that Elis developed this unique culinary signature that characterizes him and is inspired by his West Indian origins, his encounter with Africa through his wife, and his discovery of France for many years.
Together, they wanted to show that African and Caribbean dishes could be refined and be part of the world of gastronomy. This objective was achieved through their restaurant Mi Kwabo in Paris 9th arrondissement.
In 2019, he was recognized by the Gault & Millau guide as “Young Talent” and in 2021 his restaurant Mi Kwabo won the Michelin plate.
His vision of sustainable gastronomy is to refocus on the issue of quality, the origin of our ingredients and the relationships we have with the suppliers of these products.
