Et s’il faut relever le récit comme les saveurs, ce bon vivant n’hésitera pas à vous servir un verre de son meilleur Cognac. Thomas aime les bonnes choses mais surtout les partager.

À tel point qu’il avoue s’inquiéter pour son pays d’origine, la France. “J’ai l’impression que la jeune génération a perdu ce plaisir. De moins en moins de gens considèrent le repas comme un moment important de partage“, explique-t-il. À l’inverse, il dit sentir l’engouement autour de la gastronomie “grandir en Grande-Bretagne“.
