Cooking was inside of me but I didn’t think about it. This is the conclusion of the skills assessment that Helen Thikal took a few years ago. In fact, the kitchen, she is only thinking about it since her birth.

The fruit of a cultural melting pot, this so-called shy guy talking about it just had to go to the stove. ” I love big plates, beautiful colorful dishes, and I love people to eat! »

At the restaurant Boucan, run by women in Lille, his menu changes every day and the effects make him concoct dishes to die for. At Le Buchan, we don’t eat, we devour!
