Bellagio - Le Cirque - Executive Chef Wilfried Bergerhausen Biography


For Wilfried ‘Wil’ Bergerhausen, cooking runs in the family. His grandfather owned a farm and grew all of his own produce while his father worked in the front of house of restaurants for countless years, introducing his son at an early age to some of the most famous restaurants in France. So it comes as no surprise that Bergerhausen followed in his family’s footsteps. He grew up in an environment where he saw the entire cooking process - from growing the crop to serving it on the table. At the age of 10 he won “The week of taste” award in Cannes. Now, he follows his passion in Las Vegas.

Bellagio - Executive Chef Edmund Wong - Biography

Bellagio - Executive Chef Edmund Wong - Biography

Born in Hong Kong and raised on the west coast of Canada, Chef Wong began his culinary career in his home city of Vancouver, British Columbia. His approach to food draws on his Asian background and classical European training.  Wong’s style is to keep food simple and natural, focusing on the intensity of individual flavors and the harmony of regional ingredients.
 
In 1994, Wong completed a formal European-style cooking apprenticeship with Westin Hotels and Vancouver Community College.  That same year, he won a gold medal as a member of the Canadian Junior Culinary Team at the prestigious World Association of Chefs’ Societies Congress in Norway.
 
Prior to joining Bellagio in 2003, Chef Wong spent nine years with Four Seasons Hotels beginning in Vancouver.  His interest in food and travel led him to places such as Berlin, Melbourne, Australia, and in 2001, to New England where he worked as the executive sous chef at Aujourd’hui at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston.
