Romain Guyot, Chef of Le Gabriel
Chef of Le Gabriel
Romain Guyot is a young and talented chef who has made his home in the terroir of Aquitaine, his adopted region. Currently chef of the restaurant Le Gabriel (Gastronomic Restaurant and Bistrot Gourmand) he made his debut among the famous names of French gastronomy.
«I’ve been passionate about cuisine since I was a kid. Certainly because many members of my family worked in this sector.The idea of becoming a chef came insidiously, naturally with time. I’m born in Paris but I grew up in Entre-deux-mers (Bordeaux region).Thereafter I returned to Paris to work at Le Bristol Restaurant and L’Apagé Restaurant.Thereafter I returned to Bordeaux to work with Nicolas Frion at Le Gabriel.
What is important for me is to give a spotlight to a product and its producer. I do not want a dish mixing 15 different flavors.That’s not what interests me.What I want for each of my dishes is to simply cook local product. For example in the Pigeon dish we highlight the name of the producet and then the pigeon simply accompanied by onions and a delicious juice. I am a Terroir product lover !
My leitmotiv is also to give pleasure and a smile to people. It is also what I like in this job, it’s the contact with the customer!»
