In 1983 when Stéphane Buron began his professional life as an apprentice at the Hotel Bragard in Gérardmer, he was far from imagining that he would rise to the heights of his profession, sporting a toque and tricolor collar. However, after his apprenticeship, he worked in several prestigious international kitchens as a Chef de Partie: Le Relais in Mougins, the Palm Court and the Florida Palm Beach in Florida, the Hotel Martinez in Cannes and the Palais de l’Elysée in Paris.
Chef Stéphane Buron moved to the Chabichou in 1987. This is the oldest and most distinguished hotel in the village of Courchevel, a famous luxury ski resort high in the French Alps. His creative talent was rapidly noticed by famed Michel Rochedy who later became his mentor there. He progressed to a level of excellence, participating in numerous internationally renowned competitions such as the “Prix International Taittinger”.
In 2004 he was awarded the coveted M.O.F. “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” and is renowned as “The Crowning Touch” of Chabichou. Nowadays he enjoys sharing his passion for gourmet cuisine. For the past ten years, he has been giving demonstrations in courses around the world, particularly in Japan. He is currently Chef de Cuisine at Michel Rochedy’s 2-Michelin star restaurant, Le Chabichou, in France.
VIE Hotel Bangkok is delighted to welcome this master chef back for another round of dinners which reveal the essence of gourmet dining.
