Chef Guillaume Hazaël-Massieux, Bistro FouFou Traverse City Restaurant


Guillaume Hazaël-Massieux graduated from École des Arts Culinaires et de l’hotellerie in Lyon, France; which is now known as L’Institut Paul Bocuse, for the celebrity chef and French food icon who presides over the university. Guillaume brings the discipline and rigor of his French training to the Bistro FouFou kitchen.

His food is influenced by his childhood experiences in the West Indies (as is the bar: ask Guillaume about rhum agricole!), as well as his mother’s renditions of the country foods typical of her childhood home in the east of France.

Guillaume is also the chef-owner of La Becasse, a French country restaurant in Burdickville.
