A disciple of world-renowned French chef Alain Ducasse, Carrade is the owner of the Chez Ruffet, one of twenty-six restaurants in France to have been rated as two-star Michelin establishments.

The rating is bestowed on restaurants that provide excellent food in comfortable surroundings but without the frills one would expect to find in more extravagant places.

Mr. Carrade was invited by the Sofitel Plaza Hotel to prepare some special dishes such as foie gras poached in a beef consommé and lacquered in jus de poulet, preserved lemon gel, mango and pumpkin balls, cheese and tarragon spring roll claws and coco milk curry with galangal.

He also prepared truffled vegetable “pot au feu” ravioli and light corn soup with bacon and scallops on a black pudding before the camera for Ho Chi Minh City Television on Monday.

In addition, those who love cooking will have a chance to learn some of the chef’s secrets at a workshop being held on Wednesday, May 9 from 9:30 to 12:00 at the hotel. The course costs US$50 per person and includes lunch and a souvenir apron.
