"We are here to honor all those people who make exceptional products. We select the best. We have to question ourselves every time." Maximin Hellio sums up his conception of the profession, which has earned him a star in the Michelin Guide since his installation in Deauville in April 2016. Named "Best Hope" and "Great of Tomorrow" in 2012 by Gault et Millau, Maximin Hellio seems to have an ambition like his cuisine, healthy and simple.

"My cuisine is modern and creative of course, but it is above all respectful of the product. When I go to the Deauville market, I listen and I exchange a lot", explains this young chef, who first made his arms with his father Michel at La Voile d'Or in Brittany where he had already won a star, then alongside Arnaud Lallement and Frédéric Anton (Le Pré Catelan) who "instilled certain values" in him.

Offer authentic, quality cuisine, accessible to the greatest number, in a resolutely contemporary place where the atmosphere is friendly, chic and relaxed: this is the goal of Maximin Hellio, who invites us in his kitchens, to follow not step by step the recipes of two "signature" dishes from the house: Marans' chicken egg by Éric Caplier (Le Breuil-en-Auge), Orbec mushroom and yuzu, then Jean-Marc Lebey's Apple, macadamia. Perfect cooking of the poached egg, homemade phyllo dough…: Maximin Hellio reveals some of his secrets here.

My cooking is sensitive, like me. She is modern and creative of course, but she is above all respectful of the product.
