They are many in the Le Charpentier family who have been working as Chef and Restaurateur for several generations. As a young boy, Rémy was already fond of cooking, but as he was mainly enthusiastic about nature, his initial project was to become a forest ranger.
When he met Jean Luc Mouty, Chef of Castel Hotel 1904 at Saint Gervais d'Auvergne, he realized that becoming a Chef was his true project. With M. Mouty, he has developed determination and high quality requirements, the care of giving pleasure with food and has acknowledged the importance of product selection ; to say it in a word : he has developed passion for this craft.
In 2007, Rémy joined the team of the Burdigala in Bordeaux as a “Chef de partie” and further “Second de cuisine”. He then worked with Denis Franc and joined later the restaurant of the "Grand Hotel Loeramar" of Saint Jean de Luz as a Second in command.
At the beginning of 2013, he became Chef at the restaurant "Le Chilhar", at Espelette, in the Basque region.
Since February 2014 , he has taken in charge the restaurant of "La Chartreuse du Bignac".
His ambition, which is shared by Brigitte and Jean Louis Viargues, is to have you discover his style of cooking by tasting his beautifully displayed menus which will offer you genuine flavours and products of quality .Your appreciation will be his reward.
