In 2011, Chef Lupe joined Stella at the Cedar House and quickly become an indispensable asset to the restaurant. While guests could not get enough of Chef Lupe’s wood fire breads and delectable desserts, it was his unorthodox culinary style of embracing his Latin heritage with both Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences that drew people in for its creativity and comforting flavor profiles. Chef Lupe believes that the most flavorful dishes are made simply, focusing on just a few ingredients and making them shine. Chef Lupe grew up in the Truckee region, and when he is not cooking, you will find him training for the next marathon or enjoying the outdoors with his wife Ardith and daughter Gracie.
STELLA AT CEDAR HOUSE
From the moment you walk in, you will sense the warmth and energy of our open kitchen and garden patios. With a conceptual nod to Mexican, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, Chef Lupe Solis reimagines favorite dishes that are innovative, soulful and locally sourced. At Stella, our goal is to provide a special place to share not only a meal, but life with friends and family. We showcase new approaches to traditional flavors offered in conjunction with what defines Truckee and North Lake Tahoe best .… its people.
