"In 1873, Édouard Corroyer helped Annette and Victor Poulard, the son of a baker from Mont-Saint- Michel with whom Annette had fallen in love, to arrange their marriage in Paris as a token of gratitude for the years the young woman had spent in his service. That same year, Annette and Victor Poulard acquired the Hotel Saint-Michel Teste d’Or, their 1st establishment. There, Annette reinterpreted the cuisine that Édouard Corroyer loved, which was heavy and with great emphasis on sauces, turning it into simple and light meals with flavors and colors. She created her own style of cuisine based on products sourced from the bay, between the land and the sea, between Normandy and Brittany."
