Pierre Gignac was born in Montreal Canada. In 1987, Pierre graduated from the renown Institut d’Hotellerie et de tourisme du Quebec. Pierre’s first chef’s position was at a trendy Montreal celebrity hang-out, “Prego” where he learned Italian cooking. He furthered his Italian cooking knowledge under Austrian Chef Heinz Kattenfeld in Winnipeg, Canada. After travels in Europe and Asia, Pierre settled down in Ogunquit, Maine to open “98 Provence Restaurant”. Pierre’s southern French eatery has been pleasing locals, tourists and critics for the last 14 years.
