Michel Guérard, the 3-Michelin star chef and owner of the Relais & Châteaux Les Prés d’Eugénie, is the inventor of the slimming cuisine and the uncontested initiator of a responsible cuisine, which has definitively changed the relationship between nutrition and gastronomy.

In 1974, he joined his wife, Christine Barthélémy, in Eugénie-les-Bains, a thermal village in the Landes. Understanding the needs of his new clientele, Michel Guérard created, in 1975, the Grande Cuisine Minceur®.

The restaurant Les Prés d’Eugénie – Michel Guérard has been awarded its third star in the Michelin Guide since 1977.
