INTERVIEW - Pierre Rigothier
Can you present your work ?
I was born in Bordeaux. Before being in the Baudelaire’s kitchen, i worked in a lot of famous restaurants such as Hélène Darroze, Les Elysées (Hôtel Vernet’s restaurant), Laurent, et L’Espadon.
I also worked in England during five years, there I discovered and created my own style of gastronomy.
