Gastronomic Restaurant Lot et Garonne
The Chef Michel Trama
After completing his studies and turning his back on a career as a scuba diver with Captain Cousteau, in 1974, he opened a bistro on Rue Mouffetard in Paris, "Sur le Pouce" with his wife Maryse. Michel Trama is a self-taught Chef, one of those who reach the summit of their art thanks to the talent and creativity that drives them.
In 1978, Michel and Maryse fell in love with this 13th century country house, the former home of Raymond VII, in Puymirol. They embarked on the adventure which has made this establishment one of the most beautiful Relais & Châteaux in Europe, decorated by Jacques Garcia and managed by the Chef Michel Trama, in charge of the gourmet restaurant, who, in 1983, became one of the top Chefs in France.
In 1983, he received his second Michelin star. In 1987, then in 1991, he was named Chef of the Year by the gastronomic review Gault & Millau®, and, in 2014, he was named Chef of the Year by his peers for Le Chef magazine and received his third star in the Michelin guide.
