Maître Cuisinier de France
Olivier Desaintmartin, chef and owner of Caribou Café attended the hotel school in Paris and has studied under world-renowned chefs Michel Guerard, Jacques Chibois, Gaston Lenôtre, and Le Coze. He is also a Champion on The Food Network’s “Chopped.”
With Caribou, chef Desaintmartin wanted to make a departure from the world of the “white tablecloth.”
A native of Champagne, France, he has focused on the hearty comfort food that he grew up with; that the French eat every day. His recipes come from Provence, Gascony, Loire, Burgundy, Brittany, Paris, Lyon, and more. Simple, but elegant and tasty dishes that are evocative of the home-kitchens across France.
