Reine Sammut

In 1948, Reine Sammut’s mother- and father-in-law launched the Mediterranean restaurant Auberge La Fenière, in Lourmarin, France. Reine studied her mother-in-law’s recipes and built on them, eventually taking over the kitchen. In 1995, the Auberge was awarded a Michelin star, with Reine being one of the few women chefs to be granted the award. Reine now runs the kitchen along with her daughter, Nadia Sammut.
