About Mikael Amisse


Mikael Amisse hails from La Baule and studied at Guérande catering college before cutting his teeth at Le Chalet Suisse in La Baule, where he learned the essentials of traditional cooking. After having explored the various regions of France and what they had to offer, spending 8 years in the South of France, the chef returned to Brittany and became a Chef de Partie at Hôtel Barrière L’Hermitage La Baule in 2000. Guided by Chef Patrick Leduc, he learned teamwork and mastered the classics of French cuisine. In 2007, as Sous-Chef at Hôtel Barrière Le Royal La Baule, he experimented with lighter and healthier cuisine, reinventing traditional dishes in the process. In 2011, he became Head Chef at Le Royal, then Executive Chef responsible for individual catering at Resort Barrière La Baule. Having met with Thierry Galais, Michel Guérard and regional producers many times, Mikael Amisse now bases most of his cuisine around well-being (and algal cuisine in particular) by incorporating sea vegetables into his dishes.
