Mory Sacko was not even 30 when he won his first Michelin star last year. And since then, we have not stopped this chef revealed to the general public thanks to his passage in the 11e edition of “Top Chef”. “L’Obs” thus met him between the filming of the last episode of the season of “Open Kitchen”, the program he hosts every week on France 3, and the opening of the new Louis Vuitton restaurant, in Saint -Tropez, whose card he signed.

Pure product of his time, the young man decided not to choose between his French culture, his African origins and his passion for Japan – but to combine them on the plate.
