Joachim Splichal | Owner/Partner | Domaine de CALA Rosé | Brignoles, France By the 1970s, not much remained without some kind change, and the shifts often happened extemporaneously in places and events around the globe. In the culinary world, that place was Provence. James Beard, M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, Richard Olney, Simone Beck, and Judith Jones all just happened to live in the South of France at same time. They hung out together—cooking, talking, drinking, and thinking. Novelist Kurt Andersen described it as, . . . a lovely, shimmering, immersive secret history of an important moment that nobody knew was important at the time. Which are almost always the most splendid kind of important moments. The personalities in that splendid gathering went on to become today’s culinary icons that forever changed the food scene. Provence remained de rigueur for aspiring chefs for the rest of the decade, before that bohemian moment faded in the 1980s. Joachim Splichal arrived in Provence around 1977, then a fledgling cook in his early 20s. He lived in Nice and Cannes, and he worked at Michelin-2 and -3 star restaurants in Cote D’Azur—Chantecler at Hotel Negresco in Nice, under Chef Jacques Maximin and L’Oasis in La Napoule. Splichal moved to Los Angels in 1981, and he went on to become, himself, an icon in L.A.’s food scene. But he never got Provence out of his blood.
