About Yoric Tièche
Born and raised in Aix-en-Provence, Yoric Tièche’s culinary interests were sparked on summer visits to his grandmother in the village of Saint-Jean-du-Gard in the Cévennes Mountains of southern France. There, as an early adolescent, he became fascinated by an animated local baker who took Tièche under his wing. He’d get started at midnight every night with a nudge from his mother and a walk to the bakery. “We’d be up late baking croissants, bread and pains au chocolat. I’d slip back to my grandmother’s house at two in the morning.”
Tièche worked his way up at a string of exceptional restaurants across France, creating Mediterranean cuisine under Alain Llorca at the Hotel Negresco in Nice; cuisine bourgeoise under Alain Soliveres at Michelin-starred Taillevent in Paris; and classic haute cuisine during a decade-long run at Michelin-starred Restaurant le Meurice in Paris, where he was the deputy of Yannick Alleno. Tièche has also opened restaurants in Paris and elsewhere. He earned the title “Grand Chef of Tomorrow” from Gault & Millau in 2016.
Tièche says, especially in France where cuisine is such an important part of doing business and making agreements. “You can share a meal with friends and family, but you can also share a meal with someone you don’t know. It doesn’t matter what their background, religion or politics is. Nothing breaks the ice like a good meal.”
