16 years ago Chef Stéphane Andrieux started to deploy his culinary arts at Château de La Treyne. When he was offered the head chef position in the kitchen of La Treyne, he was fascinated by the flavors of the region. His cuisine, which integrates the fundamentals inherited from gourmet Périgord and Quercy, is highly inventive and wonderfully mouth-watering. Very soon his culinary arts were acclaimed and recognized, in 2001 he was awarded his first Michelin star.
