Our chef, Steve Carda
Steve Carda was born and grew up in Paris. A true foodie, his passion for cooking started at a very young age, shaping his career path and his destiny: to become a chef!
He started his culinary journey working for some of the finest establishments in Paris, then moved on to Hôtel Belles Rives on the Côte d’Azure in 2013 to join Mr Yoric Tieche, who he’d met a few years earlier. The next four years proved to be very rewarding. They then worked together for two more years at the Four Seasons in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.
Drawing on his travel experiences in countries like Thailand, Japan and Egypt, Chef Carda then took up residence in Château de la Bégude to add his magic to regional produce from the Côte d’Azur.
“I use my knowledge and experience to try to offer dishes of an exceptionally high quality, working in close collaboration with local producers and suppliers. My style is innovative and classic, taking French cuisine and adding flavours from here and there,” Steve explains.
“Steve is a leader with a great personality who constantly strives for excellence,” explains Mr Godin, Manager of Château de la Bégude. “Our aim is to obtain a ‘Bib Gourmand’ and I have every confidence that Chef Steve will do all he can to make this happen.”
