Carmen Thelen, restaurant chef in Uriage-les-Bains

The Chef

Before donning the chef’s hat at La Table d’Uriage, Carmen Thelen lived and cooked all over France. From 39 V in Paris to Strato in Courchevel, not forgetting Oustau de Baumanière in Les Baux-de-Provence, she has worked in some of the most prestigious establishments in France and with some of the biggest names in the business. Cities, mountains, southern France: these varied destinations and her vast experience have all had an effect on her cooking. Today, as Head Chef at La Table d’Uriage, Carmen Thelen creates beautiful French cuisine with a youthful, passionate feel.
