Meet Chef / Owner Bernard Dervieux

Bernard was born in Condrieu, France in 1953. His family operated a farm and this is where Bernard gained his appreciation for fresh, tasteful food. His father wanted him to pick up a trade, so at age 13, he became an apprentice charcutier and worked in Vienne until 1972. He worked under the direction of Chef Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France from 1972 to 1974 as a cuisinier and with Roger Verge in Le Moulin de Mougin. Bernard was sent by Paul Bocuse to the United States in 1974 to work at Le Francais in Wheeling, Illinois as a saucier/sous chef under the supervision of Jean Bachet. He then worked at the Pump Room in Chicago, Illinois from 1978 until 1980 as Executive Chef.
Bernard was hired in 1980 at the Beverly Hills Hotel at the recommendation of Wolfgang Puck. He was Executive Chef at the hotel until 1986. After leaving the Beverly Hills Hotel, Bernard went to the Grand Champions Resort in Indians Wells and also to Aspen, Colorado serving as Executive Chef until opening Cuistot in 1987.

When you have a thriving restaurant, widely regarded as one of the best, even perhaps the best in the desert, why on earth would you want to move? A Chef’s life is stressful enough! To take on the extra challenge of moving everything from a well-established location to a totally new venue seems like a choice of a workaholic run amok. But the opportunity to purchase the land at the intersection of two of the most traveled and renowned thoroughfares in the desert only presents itself once in a lifetime. So in 2003 Bernard and his wife Susan broke ground on their new location. The building incorporates a rustic French farmhouse theme conceived by the Dervieuxs and executed by Design Development in Agoura Hills, CA.

This will be a memorable evening of wonderful wines, delectable cuisine and friendship supporting United Way of the Desert
Our October 2021 Winewomen PSP Dinner Benefits
United Way of the Desert’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty in the Coachella Valley through mobilizing the caring power of community. They envision a healthy and vibrant community, where individuals and families have access to the opportunities to reach their potential through health, education, and financial stability. 

Through United Way's Community Impact Agenda, they work to ensure people get the support services they need right now, while simultaneously addressing the root causes of poverty in our region - that's how we create positive change and lasting Community Impact. By providing opportunities for early literacy and quality education to all children, we're setting them on the path to school success, graduation, and college or career success. These children are then more likely to hold skilled jobs and be financially equipped to support their own families one day. A stable home environment, nutritious food, and good health are not only basic human needs, but are directly linked to a successful life.
