In my cuisine, I’m looking for the pure essence, the true nature and the identity of a product in order to enhance it. Without any flashiness, a bit like a tune that has first to be refined to the extreme, retaining only a few notes, before it can be fully revealed in a final composition.

As with music, a perfect mastery of one’s scales, one’s range and gestures is essential. Technique serves to reach a balanced combination of all the elements. Provided that one knows and appreciates them, it is perfectly possible to associate all products, even the most diverse!

From land to sea, from mountains to plains, from Jura to Aude, all terroirs are meant to meet, separate and meet again. This is the deeper sense of the paths in life, of my own personal history. My temperament urges me on to experiment, beyond cultural obstructions, this search for balance between very different products, very different histories. Perhaps better than I myself would be able to express it, my dishes indicate an open mind conducive to encounters of contrasts. The most beautiful of encounters.


The restaurant

A perfect setting for appreciation

In the midst of greenery at the foot of the ramparts of the medieval citadel, Franck Putelat has imagined a place of graphic elegance, like a brilliant setting.

A balance of contrasts

Setting the stage for my cuisine

Faithful to its cuisine, to the astonishing blends and unexpected balances, the place reflects the matching of food, flavours, textures and spirits.
The flames dividing the space are proof of the control over fire and temperature, of nature expertly managed and reconstructed both on the plate as well as in the decor and the structure of its elements.

Authenticity and a sense of materials

My roots and my way

Once again, the choice of materials illustrates the Jura and mountain methods. Anchored in an obvious simplicity and the land of welcome at the end of the road: The Medieval City of Carcassonne and its medieval atmosphere.
