A native of Clermont-Ferrand, David Rathgeber left the Auvergne region of France at age 18 to embrace a culinary career. He was fortunate to begin working for Alain Ducasse, training at the Louis XV in Monaco, the Plaza Athenée in Paris and the Essex House in New York. Returning to Paris he became chef de cuisine at Les Lyonnais in 2002 and was awarded a Michelin star in 2006 at Benoit. In 2008, with the support of Chef Ducasse, David took over the legendary Parisian bistro L’Assiette in the 14th arrondissement. Rathgeber’s cuisine is a remembrance of the dishes he used to have as a child — jugged hare, stew (potée), or stuffed cabbage — especially those served at the Sunday table, around which his family of hunters gathered happily. Racines NY is proud to welcome Chef Rathgeber back to New York for this celebration of French traditional cuisine with Chef Duca!
