Chef Raul Garcia At the age of 20, Chef Raul started cooking and working at various restaurants in the LA area. Looking to expand his opportunities and education, he moved his family to the Coachella Valley in the 1990’s. Settling in Palm Springs, Raul nurtured his passion for cooking by working at the then very popular St. James Restaurant, while also studying culinary arts at C.O.D. Before the internet became what it is today, Chef Raul, a voracious reader, read every cookbook and culinary book he could get his hands on. After almost 10 years at St. James, Raul went to work as a sous Chef for Michel Despras at his first restaurant, the Canyon Bistro restaurant in 1998. After the Canyon Bistro, he began working with Michel again at the ‘Famous’ and beautiful restaurant St. Germain, in Indian Wells, a favorite among desert dwellers and visitors alike. Working with the Despras family for many years as their sous chef, he collaborated with them for their most famous restaurant to date, Lavender Bistro. Chef Raul, known for his passion in the kitchen, selects only the finest, freshest, and organic ingredients from local farms and growers to present an exceptional dining experience.
