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 his 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
Fresh Vibrant Innovative
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 flavors, Chef Lupe Solis reimagines classic dishes that are soulful, yet simple, 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 modern interpretations of cuisine based on century old traditions of cooking by season and farm to table dining. You can also enjoy Stella at home. Our Pantry offers provisions to enhance your own kitchen creations, including some of Stella’s favorites, plus oven baked breads, accoutrements and more.
