Davy Tissot

Winner Bocuse d’Or 2021

Since its early years as commis, Davy Tissot’s career has been strewn with stars. Hanged up on the door of the restaurants he’s been working in: from Auberge de Colonges to Restaurant Jean Brouilly and Auberge des Cîmes.

When starting his career, Davy has set himself the goal of becoming Meilleur Ouvrier de France, which he achieved in 2004, at only 31. He’s now proudly wearing the tricolor collar. He didn’t stop there as in 2006 he’s named as “Grand de Demain Gault & Millau “ as well as “Grand Chef Relais & Château” in 2010. This is why we can’t quite believe this talented chef when he pretends that he doesn’t enjoy eating, even though he keeps a very moving memory of his Sicilian grand-mother’s spaghettis Bolognese.

Davy Tissot is ambitious and never gives up. In 2000, he reached the 3rd place at Bocuse d’Or France and from this day has set himself the goal to represent France and win the Bocuse d’Or in Lyon, one day. Winner of Bocuse d’Or France 2019, Davy will proudly represent France at Bocuse d’Or.
