Fournier is currently helming the La Tour www.la-tour-sancerre.fr a one-star Michelin restaurant in the beautiful village of Sancerre in the Loire Valley, France. This is Fournier’s second visit to Mezze Bistro. Voted as one of the top 6 young chefs in France by the famed Gault Millau guide, Fournier took over the helm of the executive chef role from his father, Daniel at the family-owned La Tour at a young age of 29. He trained under the watchful eyes of famed chefs such as Alain Passard from three-star Michelin restaurant, L’Arpege and Guy Savoy, another three-star Michelin Chef of his namesake restaurant. Fournier has taken the food scene in Sancerre by storm with his cutting edge style and use of fresh ingredients. Without a doubt, strong connections with L’Arpege are apparent in his food.
