To Chef Franck Petagna

Awarded the title Meilleur Ouvrier de France in the year 2000, Chef Franck Petagna worked in the Hotel Martinez in Cannes before spending 10 years in Biarritz at the Hotel du Palais with Jean Marie Goutier. He worked in many countries, was respected everywhere, and joined the team at the Institut Paul Bocuse in 2001. His intelligence, technical skills, and generous spirit made him one of the best chefs we have ever had the pleasure to work with. Franck Petagna was a great chef and a great man, there is so much to say about him, and I can't find the right words. He lost the battle to a terrible cancer, and we lost a very special person. I dedicate this article to him, to Chef Petagna, to this great man, this great warrior.
