Henry Chaperont was born and raised in Paris France. As a young teen, he was fascinated with the culinary arts and looked forward to his free time when he worked with his Godfather in his restaurant in Place de Tertre, Paris. After attending business school in Paris and serving in the French Army, he fulfilled his dream of moving the United States. In time he opened a small French restaurant in Savannah, Georgia. Following that experience, he continued to move around the country working in different restaurants and hotel resorts including Loews Dallas, the Don Cesar in St. Petersburg, Florida, the Playboy Club & Casino in Atlantic City, a hotel resort in the Cayman Islands, and Longboat Key Resort in Sarasota. More recently, he purchased a French restaurant in Colorado Springs, La Petite Maison, which he ran for six years. With a passion for life in the west and its culture, plus a desire to ski in his free time, his move to the historic Taos community is truly completing the picture.
