Hollywood’s Chef Jack Lee

Oscar winners Angelina Jolie, Clint Eastwood, and Hillary Swank, as well as icons like Oprah Winfrey and Barbra Streisand know him as more than a chef.  For these notable names, Chef Jack Lee, is a true artist both in the presentation of his meals and one's palate.  Chef Lee hit the ground running after graduating the California School of Culinary Arts and the Le Cordon Bleu program, where he began refining his skills by working at a variety of prestigious restaurants with influential chefs from around the world. 

Chef Jack Lee's dedication and vast experience for over a decade has proven him to be one of the finest chefs in the business.  His impressive versatility and mastery of Asian and California-French cuisine led to his position as The Banquet Chef at Hotel Bel Air where his career flourished for three years catering the birthday parties of such luminaries as Oprah Winfrey, Patti Labelle, and Nancy Reagan.  In addition, Chef Lee successfully handled several entertainment industry events from small personalized dinners for Angelina Jolie and Kobe Bryant to big events such as the Oscar celebration for the Million Dollar Baby with Clint Eastwood and Hilary Swank and Oprah Winfrey's Wedding of the Century.  Chef Lee's expertise has also kept the appetites of dignitaries such as the royal family of Brunei and many other prominent politicians satiated. In the midst of all this cooking, this hard working chef is also writing a cookbook for kids and has a cooking show pilot in development.

Born in Vietnam to Chinese parents, Chef Lee has incorporated his international lifestyle and his  worldly upbringing into his tasty and whimsical global fusion of Eastern and Western cuisine.  Jack Lee now has returned to HCMC and has recently opened his own Acacia  Dining on Nguyen Du Street.
