Jean-Luc L’HOURRE is currently the only person ever to have won the cooking category of the “Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France” (One of the Best Craftsmen of France) competition to work on the island.
Since he arrived at the Marinca, the chef’s recurrent theme has been to offer a cuisine that showcases Brittany, his place of birth, particularly by using Le Gall cream and butter, as well as Corsica, his adopted home.

Le château des Vigiers (Monestier, Dordogne)
« At the Château des Vigiers, Le Gall liquid whipping cream and churned butter are recurrent themes throughout the entire meal. It starts with the arrival of the diners, when I serve butter with the walnut bread. They are also used to make the starters, mains and pastries. I really like the flavours of Le Gall products and especially their fantastic quality throughout the year. »
