New exceptionnal Chef

Posted on: Thursday, April 28, 2022

Ricardo Lourenço is Portuguese by birth but French at heart.

A graduate of the French culinary arts school École Ferrandi, Chef Ricardo Lourenço began his career as a trainee at the Michelin-starred restaurant Le Clovis* in 1993.

Since then, his career has been nothing short of impressive, as he has worked in nine Michelin-starred restaurants, totalling 15 stars. To name but a few, Le Cinq***, at the Hotel Georges V, where he was Chef de Partie of the team that obtained the restaurant's third Michelin star, the Ledoyen***, where he worked for more than four years after being 1st Chef de Partie, the legendary La Tour D'Argent*, where he worked for four years as Second, a role he also had at the Sur Mesure**, at the Palace Hotel Mandarin Oriental in Paris.

After returning to Portugal to devote himself to personal projects for a few years, he chose to return to the land of his heart, and to accompany the Château de Roussan in the development of a restaurant that gives pride of place to the garden and plants. A simple, elegant and passionate cuisine, conceived as the continuation of a unique experiential journey, in an exceptional setting.

At the Château de Roussan, poetry is also culinary...
