GUY SAVOY

Chef***, Guy Savoy restaurant

 

“The definition of gastronomy is the marriage of food and wine, and sommeliers have taken an important place in the restaurant.”

SYLVAIN NICOLAS

Chef Sommelier, Guy Savoy restaurant

 

“The sommeliers stage the wine with the gastronomy; they are the relays of the wine growers and the soils with the complicity of the cooks.”

PHILIPPE FAURE BRAC

Best Sommelier of the World 92

 

"Our great international meeting to celebrate our profession, our values of conviviality and passion."
 

A CHEF... OR NOTHING AT ALL

 
When he turned 15, Guy Savoy decided that he would be “a chef… or nothing at all!” His fate was sealed. His invaluable apprenticeship taught him about the satisfactions and hardships of his future career. His first steps were guided by Louis Marchand, chocolate-maker in his hometown. Next came the Troisgros brothers, who fascinated Guy Savoy with their elegant technique, then at Lasserre in Paris, the Lion d’Or in Genève and The Oasis in Napoule. He was then singled out by Claude Vergé who handed him the reins of La Barrière de Clichy.

At age 27, he opened his first restaurant in Paris and soon achieved recognition on the gastronomic scene. Guy Savoy is now settled at La Monnaie de Paris where he holds 3 Michelin stars and, for the sixth year in a row, the place of Best Restaurant of the World in La Liste. He owns five restaurants, one of them abroad.

Mention “gastronomic cuisine” and he will say that he is a restaurateur. Call him an artist and he will tell you that he is an artisan. However, rave that his food is the stuff of dreams and he will remark that only those who dream are capable of inspiring dreams in others…
