Stéphane Carrade
Chief Consultant

Stéphane Carrade, is a Gascon chef renowned for his gastronomic awards.

Indeed, after several experiences, his work was rewarded with his first star at Chez Ruffet in 2001, then with a second in 2006. He then went on to gain experience in the Arcachon basin, notably at La Guérinière, the Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux and the Skiff Club where he currently works and which holds 2 Michelin stars.

Today, he returns to his homeland with the opening of Maison Ruffet.

Like Chef Canati, Chef Carrade defines good cooking by good products and simple cuisine where one can find oneself and favors local and seasonal products. He relies on his southwestern terroir to defend sustainable gastronomy.

Christophe Canati, executive chef of Maison Ruffet, is known for leaving stars behind. Indeed, after earning his first Michelin star at the Hostellerie de Plaisance in Saint-Emilion, it was at the Clos du Cèdre (now Cèdre & Spa) in Beaune (21) that his talent was rewarded.

After having worked in different regions, both French and European, he admits that he enjoys working in wine regions more: “When you arrive in a new place, you have to immerse yourself in it. To do that, you have to be curious, go and meet the producers, the winegrowers, taste, smell, discuss, live the region”.

His cooking is based on the advice of various chefs whose paths he has crossed, but also influenced by his travels from which he brings back spices, herbs, ideas… etc.

However, he always favors simple and straightforward cooking based on local products.
