You might never have heard about the amazing chef Olivier Roellinger. On the contrary to many other French 3 michelin stars chefs, he never ever sold his soul to the gastronomy devils. Meaning he always preferred staying small and maintaining very high quality. While most of his talented peers were opening franchised restaurants all over the world, he remained focused on doing very few things and respecting incredibly high standards.
2 years ago he decided to give back his 3 michelin stars and closed his main restaurant to focus on traveling the world and discovering some new authentic flavors, ingredients and other cuisines. Through his many trips in Asia, India, Africa and South America he built friendship and partnerships with producers of some of the best spices in the world. And naturally opened up his Maison des épices. First in Cancale where he was born, then a second outlet in Saint Malo. And a latest one opened late November 2010 in Paris. You can also shop online ( French only supported ) but the boutiques are really worth paying a visit.
Enjoy the smelling trip !
