Our Chef

Pierre Gignac was born in Montréal, Canada. After graduating from the Institut d’Hôtellerie et de Tourisme du Québec, Pierre apprenticed at the bastion of classic French cuisine Montréal restaurant “Chez La Mère Michel”. Pierre’s first chef’s position was at trendy “Prego” an Italian eatery favored by Montréal’s celebrities, politicians and dining elite. Chef Pierre furthered his education under Austrian chef Heinz Kattenfeld at renowned “Amici” restaurant in Winnipeg, Canada. After extensive travels in Asia and Europe, Pierre chose to open his first restaurant in Ogunquit, Maine “98 Provence”. Pierre’s southern French bistro pleased locals, tourists and critics for 18 years, until it closed in 2012.
