Eugénie Béziat

Chef

The young 34-year old from Toulon (although she is originally from Gabon, having spent her entire childhood in Africa), makes her début here as a chef, after three notable years as head manager under star-rewarded chef Yann Le Scarvarec at La Roya of Saint-Florent.

I was pursuing literary studies at the University of Toulouse when a meal by Hélène Darroze in Paris cause me to experience such intense emptions that I decided to change career” explains Eugénie. Graduating from the hotel school in Toulouse, she joined Michel Guérard at… Eugénie les Bains, as kitchen help. She then went on to work for the Brasserie of the Stade Toulousain under Stéphane Garcia, a restaurant for which Michel Sarran was a consultant.

One day he offered me a job as his private chef in his house in Ibiza, where I cooked for his family and friends. Working for Sarran was dream come true” she tells us.

After Corsica, she meets Roger Martins who uses convincing arguments to get her to join the La Flibuste adventure.
