NEW ORLEANS – The Windsor Court, an elegant escape located in the heart of New Orleans, announces the promotion of Jan Tagaro, a rapidly rising culinary star. Promoted from his
most recent position as a Sous Chef to Banquet Chef, Tagaro has ascended quickly from training through the food & beverage ranks, a testament to his hard work and motivation. In his new leadership role, Tagaro is responsible for overseeing food preparation of catering events, ensuring a high-level of quality food experience consistently. He oversees the planning, organizing, controlling, and direction of banquet kitchen associates of The Windsor Court.

“We are so proud and happy to have one of our J-1 participants decide to remain on the team and continue to do big things within our Windsor Court family. Chef Jan consistently receives positive feedback from various event groups, showing great leadership skills and is very organized for each event,” says The Windsor Court General Manager, Ralph Mahana. “He is a great team leader, and we are lucky to have him.”

Tagaro started his journey with The Windsor Court in 2018 as a student in the J-1 visa program. The purpose of the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program is to increase mutual understanding between people of the U.S. and people of other countries through educational and cultural exchanges. After completing the program at The Windsor Court, Tagaro worked to stay in the United States, further pursuing his career in New Orleans. Working in the banquet kitchen and as a Banquet Sous Chef of The Windsor Court for the past five years, throughout Tagaro’s time in the kitchen, he has demonstrated a strong desire to gain a deep understanding of culinary techniques and team leadership.

The Windsor Court is built on the premise of delivering revered service within a refined space. Touting fine dining fare, afternoon tea, and weekend brunch, The Windsor Court also presents an iconic cocktail bar & lounge featuring live jazz. Just steps away from the French Quarter, the hotel presents an on-the- go eatery, fine dining fare – from afternoon tea to weekend brunch, a classic cocktail lounge featuring live jazz, a rooftop pool with a cabana-style bar, and a full-service, luxury spa & wellness experience.
