Career
At the beginning of her career, Maïté worked as an announcer for the SNCF, France's national railway company: she was in charge of alerting railway workers with a trumpet before a train arrived, so that they could let it pass.In 1983, Maïté was spotted by director Patrice Bellot during a news report about the Rion-des-Landes rugby team: she was the owner a nearby restaurant where the players would go after the games. Soon after, she began hosting the cooking show La Cuisine des Mousquetaires with Micheline Banzet-Lawton (1923-2020).
In 1988, Maïté opened her first restaurant in Rion-des-Landes, which was later used to record her shows. She eventually closed this first establishment before opening another one in the same town, Chez Maïté, which closed in April 2015.Maïté's various television appearances gave rise to famous television moments, in particular her very sensual tasting of ortolan in 1984 or a recipe during which a somewhat recalcitrant eel had to be stunned with a mortar pestle in 1992.In parallel, Maïté was also a host at Sud Radio and appeared regularly in other programs, documentaries and fictions. In particular, she can be seen in two episodes of the program C'est pas sorcier, both entitled Le cèpe à sorcier and broadcast in 1997 and 2005.She has released a number of books, VHS and DVDs about cooking.


Personal life
She was married to Pierrot from 1958 until his death in 2020. Her only son, Serge, died in 2008 from cancer.
