Gilles Dudognon

La Chapelle Saint Martin

We are honored to have as our first ambassador, the Michelin-starred chef Gilles Dudognon.

We share with him the values of authenticity, demanding terroir, creativity and give great importance to doing good.

“Life allowed me to meet the destiny of a man and to witness his daring adventure around the Charente region. I saw the birth of a captivating drink revolving around the mysterious immortelle flower perfume.”

From an adventure which seemed to diverge from my usual culinary sector…the words, the passion…immediately, the link between Melifera and the culinary arts were made. Here I share some of my inspirations:

– Melifera’s iced glass. Raspberry, squash oil
– The smoked emulsion, candied Melifera cod
– The immortelle and lime soufflé, for which you can find the recipe below

La Buvette de la Plage

Saint Denis d’Oléron

We are delighted to have as our second ambassador, La Buvette de la Plage and Fred Deverny’s team.

Melifera feels most at home with its feet in the sand, on the Boirie beach in Saint Denis.

It is this same desire to share simple moments, quality products and to pay tribute to the island of Oleron that unites us.

Delicious moments filled with sun warmth in perspective…
