A native of Cannes and a lover of the South of France and Italy, Christian Sinicropi has been working in the kitchens of the Hôtel Martinez since 2001. After a rich experience in Cannes, Biarritz, Strasbourg, Monaco and through his travels around the world, Christian Sinicropi became executive chef of all the Martinez restaurants in 2007.
He puts his creativity and style at the service of the Restaurant La Palme d’Or, a restaurant with two Michelin stars and 4 Toques and 18/20 in the Gault&Millau guide. The Restaurant La Palme d’Or honours original cuisine associated with an original art of the table, whose ceramic tableware is designed by him and shaped by his wife Catherine. Together, they were introduced to ceramics a few years ago at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Vallauris.
The chef draws his inspiration from nature, art, literature and philosophy. His approach is based on sharing and discovering the biodiversity that surrounds his southern region. His cuisine invites us to savour the essence of the Mediterranean with notes of subtle or pronounced perfumes and flavours in excellence and simplicity. Able to awaken our primitive instincts through our senses, Christian Sinicropi and his team offer the restaurant La Palme d’Or an original, artistic and poetic vision of a culinary eco-system.
