Born from a union between the Mediterranean and Normandy, Chief Morgane Lovero draws inspiration from her family roots. With a mother who was a great cook in the family, a grandfather who produced cider and raised Norman lamb, she quickly found her place in pastry making.

Nevertheless, her taste for cooking quickly caught up with her. Inspired by chefs such as: Isabella De Armas, with whom she has worked, her cooking is respectful of the seasons and the environment, but also warm, friendly and full of flavor. She brilliantly combines transmission cooking and local products to provoke an emotion through a vegetal, simple and comforting cuisine.
