Adeline Grattard is the head chef of the Michelin-starred restaurant Yam'Tcha in Paris.

Grattard was born on February 8, 1978 in Dijon, France.[1] She was trained at the School of French Cuisine at Ferrandi and worked under Pascal Barbot at L'Astrance.[1][2]

Grattard's husband, Chi Wah Chan, was born in Hong Kong, and they moved from Paris to Hong Kong for two years, where Grattard worked alongside Chinese chefs and explored the culinary scene.[2][3] They returned to Paris and together opened Yam'Tcha in the Les Halles neighborhood in 2009.[2][4] The name Yam'Tcha is a reference to the Cantonese phrase "Yum cha" for eating a meal with tea, and tea service by Chan is part of the prix fixe meal at the restaurant.[5] Yam'Tcha received many positive reviews in its first year and was awarded one star in the 2010 Michelin Guide.[4]

Grattard was featured on an episode of the Netflix series Chef's Table: France in 2016.[3]
