Gault&Millau: Yoann Conte elected chef of the year

Yoann Conte crowned cook of the year

During the annual Gault&Millau ceremony, it was alongside Jérôme Banctel, Olivier Bellin and Olivier Couvin on the podium that Yoann Conte took first place and succeeded Olivier Nasti. With two stars in the Michelin Guide and five toques in the Gault&Millau, it was for his restaurant La Maison Bleue in Veyrier-du-Lac in Haute-Savoie that he was awarded a 19/20.

Other titles awarded by Gault&Millau

This year, the list is a little more feminine than in previous years, which has also been criticized by the gastronomic guide. The title of pastry chef of the year was awarded to a woman: Narae Kim from Pur’ – Jean-François Rouquette at the famous Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme. Another essential reward of the ceremony, that of the restaurant manager of the year who crowned Thierry Pruvot of the restaurant Le Pré Catelan. As for the sommelier of the year, it is Jean-Baptiste Klein from the La Table d’Olivier Nasti establishment. You surely know the famous Toques awarded by Gault&Millau when you go to a restaurant. This year, 6 restaurants received 4 Toques: Château de la Gaude in Aix-en-Provence (13), Lalique Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey in Bommes (33), Le Sarkara in Courchevel (73), L’Écrin – Hôtel de Crillon in Paris 8th (75), L’Astrance in Paris 16th (75) and Don Juan II in Paris 16th (75).
