In 1993, he and his wife Laure opened their first restaurant, Le Champ de Foire in Lencloitre, half an hour from Poitiers, and in 2007, opened Passions et Gourmandises, a modern restaurant focusing on fresh seasonal produce.
Richard Toix has also collaborated with the contemporary Chinese artist Zhou Tiehai, where he combined painting with French traditional pastries for a grand exhibition in 2010.
“We all look forward to welcoming Chef Richard Toix at The Tivoli” says Director of Food and Beverage Peter Pysk, adding that the kitchen brigade headed by Executive Chef Rene Ottlik and Executive Sous Chef Remi Vercelli are excited to be collaborating with another great Michelin chef. “Chef Richard’s visit comes close on the heels of the highly successful promotion recently with Chef Nicolas Isnard, and we are certain that our diners will be delighted to again savour the sublime flavours of contemporary French gastronomy by a Michelin-starred chef.”
