Chef *** Christophe Bacquié

For more than 10 years, Christophe Bacquié has deployed his talent as director of catering at the Hôtel & Spa du Castellet*****

There are countless distinctions for this chef who proudly displays French excellence: 3 stars in the Michelin Guide, Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2004, 19/20 in the Gault & Millau, Chef of the Year 2018 by Le Chef magazine's Trophy, but also Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur in 2020... That's how much the man is a figurehead of high gastronomy. On his bike as in life, by dint of perseverance, Christophe Bacquié has managed to climb the ladder one by one, gradually reaching the top.

And his cuisine is made in his image... impetuous, assertive and at the same time delicate and sober.  This man with a big heart and a strong head is a relentless cook, a tireless worker who follows the path of life like an epic... A chance to touch perfection with his fingertips, to take fine palates further and further. Every day, the Chef sings the praises of Provence in all that it has to offer. And one thing is certain... the Mediterranean is anchored in his DNA, impregnating the soul of each dish he creates!  His subtle and generous cuisine does not bother with anything superfluous: it is a score played from the heart and not a show of force. A true goldsmith's work then takes place, bringing to light a salty and sweet recital that is amazingly accurate, an effervescence of tastes that is frank and sincere and that leads us to an ascent of voluptuousness!
