I contacted Ms. Esteban last summer for a housewarming party over a weekend with a reception of about forty people. She managed the various meals brilliantly and the evening of Saturday night was particularly successful. I particularly appreciated the quality of the dishes offered as the guests were captivated by the creativity worthy of a starred restaurant, and the finesse of the dishes despite the number of guests. Ms. Esteban ensured all the meals relentlessly and punctually, always with a concern for the satisfaction of the guests who were delighted and who were unanimous on the delivery.

I work with Cécile because she cooks with love while following strict organisational requests. She took part in several of our seminars, and was acclaimed for the attention she has been able to bring to everyone despite our large cohorts - about 15 people by herself ! Her cuisine is a real south of France cuisine treat, and her passion is reflected in the detail of the presentations that highlight the quality of the ingredients she chooses. I do not dare to say that she’s kind-hearted, and that we are all sad when she is not available.

The Chef

Born in Champagne, with french burgundian parents, Chef Cecile ESTEBAN is an epicurean. She appreciates good wines and enjoy good food. A thesis of oenology in her pocket, she has the conviction that health begins in the plate, and that eating should give pleasure. She cooked first for her family, before opening guest houses near St Tropez, exactly at Taradeau. It was a famous place where people knew they could relax, enjoy guest table and listen some nice stories from her travels. His son Eliot and his girlfriend Lucile continue this nice and wonderful adventure.

Cecile ESTEBAN is a globe trotter. Travelling all other the world since she was 18, she is curious and passionate. She came back with lot of exotic flavors, multicolored treasures like spices, leaves and roots to create her own world fusion cuisine. She tests, she revisits, she invents dishes. She respects the knowledge of the old persons and the good traditional recipes and loves to add her little personal touch, create and innovate, to mix the kitchens of the world with that of the soul.

Manager for 20 years of charming guest houses, at Taradeau then at Nice, on French Riviera, she moves with you on your private yacht, from Cap d'Antibes to Monaco, Théoule s/Mer, St Jean Cap Ferrat or Beaulieu to treat you. Do you go to winter sports? Courchevel, Meribel, Crans Montana, Geneva, Avoriaz? She follows you, wherever you settle, if the atmosphere is nice!

Very attached to the Mediterranean and healthy cuisine, she always aims to meet your dietary requirements (kosher, halal, vegan, macro, keto, etc.). She knows very well local fishermen and small local producers at the amazing markets of Nice. She lives now close to an amazing one, Libération, and she could make you discover it with her workshop at her place.

Private chef or cooking class, Chef Cécile Esteban will respect your budget and your requirements.
