On August 30, the third phase of Gault & Millau's “Dotation Jeunes Talents” took place in a restaurant in the 16th arrondissement in Paris. It is an initiative that since 2014 seeks to recognize the potential of young restaurateurs, helping them to open their first establishment by offering the necessary equipment and raw materials. Entrepreneurs Tiphaine Mollard & Romain Casas, Jean-Rony Leriche, and Bastien de Changy, became the winners of the 2021 promotion, and were enthusiastically welcomed by Maximilien Kuzniar, one of the winners of the previous edition.

Tiphaine Mollard - from the Savoie region and trained at Alain Ducasse's "Benoit" and at "Le Club" - and Romain Casas - from the Bearn province and trained at "Chez Château" and "Le Club" - are friends outside and inside the kitchen. Together, they have the objective of opening a friendly restaurant, inspired by a bistro, to offer a gastronomy that combines the traditional dishes of their places of origin.

On the other hand, Jean-Rony Leriche is no stranger to Gault & Millau. His Toulouse restaurant, “Leriche de Saveurs”, has been in the restaurant guide's pick for several years for its delicious and warm Caribbean cuisine. "I am proud to have a multicultural origin and to have managed to delight the people of Toulouse," explains former Franck Renimel student. With help, he wants to double his West Indian cuisine at a new Parisian establishment where he will feature food and rum pairings.

Finally, we have one of the participants of the fifth season of Masterchef, Bastien de Changy. In 2018, Bastien took a new direction in his professional life, assuming the position of chef at the “Café Néon” in Paris, before establishing himself as a home chef and host of culinary workshops. I am a committed and passionate person... Starting a business comes naturally to me", explains the chef. He has opened his restaurant "Cambrousse" inside the Château de la Bûcherie in Vexin, where he intends to practice permaculture.
