For immediate release


John Coppola, of Insight Management Solutions, Inc., is pleased to announce that world renowned Chef Leon Galatoire has become a new client. IMS will be representing Chef Leon for all appearances and business matters.




Chef and Author Leon Galatoire is a fourth generation proprietor of Galatoire’s Restaurant in New Orleans and world renowned expert on Creole cuisine. He began his love affair with food at a very young age where he was consumed with the seemingly endless bounty of seafood from the marshes and bayous that fringe the Gulf of Mexico. His uncle was a fabulous cook and taught him to make his first gumbo.

He began his 20 year tenure at Galatoire’s in 1976 where he learned bases, subtleties, nuances, and history of its famous Creole cuisine during his four year apprenticeship in the kitchen. He then moved to the front of the house greeting guests and working alongside other family members with the day-to-day operations. From 1991 to 1996, Leon served in Galatoire’s kitchen, this time wearing a different hat as Chef. During this time he also traveled extensively in the Caribbean and was influenced by the cooking of the islands where Creole fare first began.





In 1994 he wrote "Leon Galatoire's Cookbook" to great acclaim.  The cookbook remains a best seller. Chef Leon is now in demand as a Guest Chef, participates as a judge at culinary competitions and in various cooking engagements and functions.
