Sébastien Sanjou

Born into a family with a five-generation legacy of making and selling food in Bigorre, south-western France, Sébastien Sanjou has been cradled by French cuisine from the very beginning. In 2002, at just 20 years old, he opened his own restaurant in a beautifully renovated 16th-century farm house in the heart of the Var region. At the helm of Relais des Moines, he earned his first Michelin star in 2013 at the young age of 31. As a conductor of gastronomy, Sebastien uses the very best that his beloved country has to offer to create dishes that are nothing short of breathtaking. His culinary talent at the Trente-Trois was quickly recognized, and in just a few short months after the opening of the restaurant, he was awarded a coveted Michelin Star. His ability to elevate simple ingredients to new heights and his dedication to his passion make him a true culinary virtuoso and an invaluable member of the The Collection team.
