Jean-Christophe Novelli began his exciting career at the tender age of fourteen as a baker in his home town of Arras, Northern France, before becoming the private Head Chef to Elie de Rothschild at the age of 19. Jean-Christophe’s life changed completely when he arrived in Great Britain in 1983. He spent a year taking care of Keith Floyd’s pub, ‘The Maltsters’, as Head Chef, whilst Keith was filming his famous TV shows.
In 1996, Jean-Christophe then opened four restaurants in London, and so began the foundations for his internationally based mini-empire. What is so surprising is that he only had £500 in his pocket to start this solo venture.
Jean-Christophe Novelli promotes healthy cooking and fine dining concepts with elegance and delicacy. These are precisely the qualities that are embroiled in Black Truffles, as Andrew Smith, CEO of Black Truffle Investments, explained in today’s introduction to the partnership.
“Food has played such a significant role in enriching my life; it gives me great pleasure to be part of this sustainable, eco-friendly, Truffle Investment” Novelli explained during his presentation in London.
According to Smith, it was not easy to find the right person to be Black Truffle Investments ambassador. “Jean-Christophe Novelli is a perfect choice. His profile and charisma are an ideal fit for Black Truffle Investments. He has an outstanding reputation and is also highly respected around the world.”
For Black Truffle Investments, the choice of Jean-Christophe Novelli as brand ambassador extends its commitment to Eco-Friendly Alternative Investments. BTC is fully committed to our investors for a long term.

Jean-Christophe restored part of his 14th century Hertfordshire farmhouse so that the Novelli Academy could be accommodated in his own home. Jean-Christophe is the owner and co-founder of the Academy. In September 2007 Jean-Christophe was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Arts from Bedfordshire University for his 30 years of dedication to his craft and outstanding achievements in cooking.
