DAVID TOUTAIN
VIRTUOSO BY
NATURE
“A GIFTED CHEF”, “ONE OF THE MOST CREATIVE YOUNG CHEFS”, “THE RISING STAR OF PARIS.” THE
SUPERLATIVES USED TO DESCRIBE THE TALENTED FRENCH CHEF DAVID TOUTAIN ARE ENDLESS: “BEST
FOREIGN CHEF 2015” BY THE ITALIAN CULINARY GUIDE IDENTITÀ GOLOSA, FOUR TOQUES ON GAULT
& MILLAU IN 2017 AND “CHEF OF THE YEAR” IN THE 2017 PUDLO PARIS GOURMAND GUIDE. AFTER
SO MUCH SUCCESS, DAVID TOUTAIN EMBARKED ON THE NEW CHALLENGE OF COMPOSING TWELVE
DISHES FOR THE HERITAGE LE CHÂTEAU MENU USING LOCAL PRODUCTS.

He is part of the young
generation of chefs shaking
up the culinary world.
After having been trained
by the greats like Bernard
Loiseau, Pierre Gagnaire,
Alain Passard, “the prince
of vegetables,” and Marc
Veyrat – these last two
instilled in him a passion for
vegetables – David Toutain
knew how to impose his
name with his ultra-creative
cuisine. In 2013, he opened
his eponymous restaurant in
Paris. Two years later (only!),
he received a star in the
HERITAGE RESORTS STORIES |
55
Michelin Guide. A recognition
that he compares to “a pat
on the back that encourages
us to continue.”
Since the opening of his
restaurant, David Toutain
has undertaken projects
that allow him to “question
himself”: he contributed to
the menu for the business
class of La Compagnie (a
French airline), he composed
a gin menu for Star of
Bombay, he is a consultant
for the French drama
television series Chefs.
