Born in Burgundy, Vincent Maillard fell in love with Provence and the Mediterranean. He worked there for a long time for Alain Ducasse, at Louis XV in Monaco, then at Byblos in Saint-Tropez, before leaving the legendary boss for a new address in La Croix-Valmer, Lily of the Valley.
The place is a luxury gym, designed by Philippe Starck, where Vincent Maillard’s kitchen accompanies spa guests looking to regain control of their health, along with a nutritionist. A new step for this chef who has found here also a form of balance in his adopted land, the Mediterranean.
Vincent Maillard has left his mark alongside the great chefs, he has already been played several times, especially at L’Hostellerie de Levernois, in Beaune. In his new territory, in La Croix-Valmer, he combined gastronomy and wellness cuisine, both, according to him, incompatible.
It is all about highlighting the products, their taste, the Mediterranean specificity and for this Vincent Maillard chooses neighboring producers: saffron, fisherman around the Golden Islands, market gardeners, olive oil producers.
On the show he prepares a homemade salad for you, in his open kitchen by the sea.
