French Caribbean Chef Babette de Rozières is the fourth favourite TV chef in France, according to a survey of TV2. French favourite is top chef Cyril Lignac.
Just recently the popular Caribbean chef of TV5 opened a new restaurant. She wanted to create a more intimate atmosphere where she could welcome her guests as friends. She named her new restaurant La Case de Babette.
Parisian TV chef Babette de Rozières' interest in food was first sparked by her West Indian grandmother from Guadeloupe, an 'amazing cook', who raised her, writes the Guardian. “Whenever she turned her back, I would stick my fingers in her sauces, out of sheer greed.”
Growing up, her plan wasn't to own a restaurant - she has a degree in geography - however, in 1978, she decided that she would like to open a Creole restaurant which, with just two seats, was the smallest restaurant in Paris. De Rozières' food was so popular that she was invited to run a 400-cover restaurant in St Tropez. She opened the popular La Table de Babette in Paris and her cookery books have won numerous awards.
