Benoît Carcenat, Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2015
Benoît Carcenat’s family of cooks passed on a passion for food from his native Périgord and a love of exceptional products. Benoît Carcenat trained in fine cuisine with Joël Robuchon, in Paris, and then alongside several renowned chefs from the South-West of France, such as Christian Parra and Frank Ferriguti.
He then joined a prestigious Swiss restaurant, the Hôtel de Ville de Crissier (3 Michelin stars, 19 Gault & Millau points, awarded the title of best restaurant in the world in 2015 by “La Liste”), where he worked alongside Frank Giovannini and Benoît Violier.
Over the years, and with a lot of hard work, he learned precision, the importance of good-quality produce and a mastery of technical skills. His passion for new experiences led him on a long gourmet world tour which was a decisive moment in the development of his cuisine. He discovered distant shores, new flavours, and unknown textures and products. The globe-trotting chef finally decided to settle in the home country of his wife Sabine.
Thanks to his exceptional technical prowess and all his rich human and taste experiences, Benoît Carcenat, Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2015, has been running the kitchen of his gourmet restaurant La Table du Valrose in Rougemont since July 2021.
Every day, accompanied by his dedicated team, Benoît nurtures his love of beauty and good taste, unleashes his exceptional creativity, and expresses his childish joy for the pleasure of his guests.

Nothing is left to chance; each part of the menu is mastered to ensure a perfect and exquisite balance.
Unlimited exceptional creativity
For the Chef, each dish is unique and conveys his passion and many years of experience. The score of desserts orchestrated by Josselin Jacquet, talented pastry chef, marks the high point of an exceptional gastronomic journey with his unique creations.
