Come this October to Mezze Bistro, to experience the whimsical but précise style of top Chef, Baptiste Fournier who is currently helming the La Tour, a one-star Michelin restaurant in the beautiful village of Sancerre in the Loire Valley, France.

Voted as one of the top 6 young chefs in France by the famed Gault Millau guide, Baptiste 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.

Baptiste trained under the watchful eyes of famed chefs such as Alain Passard, one of the best chefs in Paris from three-star Michelin restaurant, L’Arpege and Guy Savoy, another three-star Michelin Chef of his namesake restaurant. Baptiste 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.
