About the mother Poulard
It is in 1888 that Annette Poulard creates her inn at Mont Saint Michel. Very quickly recognized, the immense talents of Annette Poulard and the some seven hundred recipes she created earned her the honorary title of "Mother" which distinguishes her outstanding cooking skills and her decisive contribution to the fame of French gastronomy. As a child of Mont Saint-Michel, Éric Vannier, President of the La Mère Poulard Group, has been developing a hotel and restaurant group for 30 years, including La Mère Poulard's inn. Famous all over the world for its famous omelette souffée, La Mère Poulard is still an institution of French gastronomy thanks to its varied, inventive and light cuisine that combines tradition, simplicity and modernity. Although the omelette cooked over a wood fire has made La Mère Poulard's world-wide reputation, her delicious biscuits have also contributed to her fame. In 2015, the restaurant La Mère Poulard remains one of the most famous restaurants in France and in the world as well as for the 4 million French and foreign visitors who go each year to Mont Saint Michel.
