Michelin-star trained chef joins Coal Harbour’s iconic French bistro
Born in Vancouver, BC, Catherine began her culinary career under renowned chef Alain Rayé at West Vancouver’s La Régalade in 2004.
Three years later, her passion led her to Europe, where she spent nearly a decade working her way up the line at prominent Michelin-star restaurants La Pyramide in Vivienne, France and La Cuisine de Joël Robuchon in London. From there, Catherine took over the kitchens of Château La Lagune, one of the fourteen 3e Grand Cru Classé (Third Growth Bordeaux) wineries of France.
Stewart also co-owned a pâtisserie in La Brède, France, called Pâtisserie d’Autrefois and worked as a highly-sought-after private chef and consultant, all before returning to Vancouver this year.
“All seasons are special and evoke different memories that celebrate a variety of ingredients,” says Stewart. “From Périgord truffles in the winter that remind me of Christmas, to the first, beautiful, warm tomatoes in the summer, to Cèpe mushrooms in autumn reminding me that summer is indeed over.”
With a wealth of classic French culinary techniques and a thoroughly modern philosophy, Catherine is keen to bring her contemporary touch to Tableau’s re-vamped lunch and dinner menus, set to launch in February 2019.
For those looking to experience Catherine’s distinctive culinary talents before then, Tableau will present Stewart’s first three-course set dinner menu on New Year’s Eve, complete with suggested wine pairings and a complimentary glass of bubbles.
