Through great teamwork and technique, Sébastien and François aim for a modern version of refined classic French cuisine tinted with Japanese influences, to reveal and enhance the delicate flavors of each product they work with. Constantly seeking perfection, the duo offers a taste of French excellence, sparing no details.
Born in Brittany, Sébastien has studied at the best restaurants in France (Ladurée), Italy (G. Marchesi **), and Japan (J.Robuchon **). Arriving in Tokyo in 2002, his career leads him to undertake the direction of the kitchens of the French Embassy in Japan where he officiates since 2004.
After more than 10 years in the service of public and private personalities from around the world and with a keen knowledge of Japanese products, Sébastien is awarded the Order of French Agricultural Merit in 2013. He is now one of the most influential French chefs in Japan. In 2017, with the unconditional support of his counterpart and friend François Audrin, he decides to create « La French Touch ».
Hailing from the same French region, and with an equally strong commitment to excellence, François has also been able to prove himself in some of the greatest restaurants in France and abroad.
The « Chabichou » ** in Courchevel, « The Waterside Inn » *** in London, or « Don Alphonso » ** in Italy allowed him at the age of just 24 to take charge of the most prestigious Mega Yacht in the world the « Christina Onassis“ for five years.
Founding President of the International Union of the Ambassador’s Chefs, François served several years as chef of the Ambassador at the Embassy of the European Commission in Tokyo.
Today, fully committed to this project, the idea is simple: Meet the growing demand of a clientele in search of excellence.
