Cédric Gaston had been at the helm of the famous Auberge de l’Ady since 2006 in Valady in Aveyron. He died on Sunday 18 December. He was 42 and had been fighting the disease for several months.
“It was a real UFO in the kitchen. What he created at Valady is extraordinary. His dishes were magical and above all I will remember his madness in his profession. We could tell him that we had to cook for 300 guests in the middle of the vineyards or wherever, he did it without thinking, but always with incredible perfection in his gestures and his dishes”. These are the words of Benjamin Bergès from the restaurant Le Coq de la Place in Rodez.
