Claude Dozorme on the tables of chef Hideki Nishi

We are in Paris, in the heart of the very chic 15th arrondissement of Paris. It’s in a low-traffic artery that the Japanese chef Hideki Nishi’s restaurant sets up Neige d’Été. In this discreet and refined establishment, he offers his gastronomic interpretation of French cuisine.

Since its opening in 2014, the chef has constantly offered an extremely rigorous and elegant cuisine with the utmost respect for the seasons, the product and Japanese know-how. Very quickly, he was surrounded by a first star.

Building on the success of Neige d’Éte, the chef and his wife, Nirei, opened a second address in 2018, also in the 15th arrondissement. Called Pilgrim, this new opus was awarded a Michelin’s star in 2019.

On his tables, Le Thiers® Classic et Le Thiers® by Thomas Bastide 

Couteaux Thiers - Claude DozormeTo decorate the tables of their 2 restaurants, Hideki and Nirei were immediately won over by Claude Dozorme knives. “I discovered Claude Dozorme cutlery thanks to a friend who gave us table knives of the brand. Beyond their aesthetic and design aspect, we greatly appreciated their cutting qualities. And then, that changes the Laguiole a bit…” underlines Nirei.

To decorate the minimalist and refined tables of Neige d’Éte, the couple opted for Le Thiers® table knives. With their white nacrine handle, they bring grace and sophistication to this establishment, all dressed in white and gray.

For their new gastronomic spot, they set their sights on Le Thiers® by Thomas Bastide, designer for Baccarat. With its asymmetrical handle that does not touch the table when it is put down, this exclusive creation is a perfect complement to the tables of the “soft and golden” Pilgrim.

As for the wine service, it is carried out in the rules of the art with the corkscrew Le Thiers® by Claude Dozorme!

For Nirei, the Dozorme products are really perfect. “The grip is very pleasant and we have no complaints about their sharpness. We really like the Le Thiers® table knife, which is very elegant and echoes the image of our Summer Snow restaurant. And what about Claudine Dozorme? She is so dynamic! Each time, we are delighted to see her and to share with her her love for Thiers cutlery, an ancestral know-how”.


Focus on Chef Hideki NISHI

Chef Hideki NishiFond of good products and high culinary techniques, Chef Hideki Nishi catches the kitchen bug from an early age. Born into a family of restaurateurs, his parents owned a Japanese restaurant in Matsusaka, his hometown. Growing up, he became very interested in Western cuisine. Determined to deepen his knowledge of French gastronomy, Hideki Nishi leaves Japan to come and settle in France.

He started out in the best establishments in the capital. At Taillevent at first alongside Chef Philippe Legendre who will set him up for the stirrup. Needy and persevering, he does not count his hours to improve and prove his ability. There followed 13 years at the Georges V, alongside Chef Legendre then Chef Eric Briffard.

A deep desire then develops to be able to assert one’s own culinary writing. It was with his wife that he opened his first Summer Snow restaurant. In which, he experiments cooking with charcoal, a Japanese heating technique at 800 ° which allows to trap the flavors and bring crispness.
And even if he sometimes draws his inspiration from his Japanese origins, his cuisine, both classic and modern, remains imbued with the codes of traditional French cuisine.

When Dozorme knives enhance Mexican gastronomy

It is rue Troyon, close to the magnificent Place de l’Etoile on which stands the Arc de Triomphe, nestled in the gourmet restaurant Oxte. As soon as you walk through the doors of the establishment, it is a room of the most sophisticated that comes to you. Bright and cozy, both contemporary and retro with its leather sofas, velvet armchairs and formica tables. A mix of explosive materials but that works perfectly!

The dishes are a real invitation to travel, an ode to Mexico, where the chef, Enrique CASARRUBIAS, is born. On the plate, therefore operates a tasty blend of French and Mexican cuisine. “By creating my restaurant in 2018, I wanted to show that Mexican cuisine is not just spicy food and fast food. As I am a fan of French cuisine, I wanted to make a culinary association of both cultures, dishes prepared from local products.”

Claude Dozorme, knives that have sharp edges

Simply order a meat or monkfish so that one of the three servers that make up the team presents you with a box of knives signed Dozorme. “Customers are surprised by the quality of the knives when we open the box. More and more, even, know the mark Dozorme.” recalls the Chef. And to continue: “I had already seen Dozorme knives because La Grande Coutellerie was right next to my old job. When I pushed the doors of the shop, I immediately hooked on the Le Thiers® table model with the olive handle. I finally decided to buy a service of about forty knives for my restaurant. In use, I am very satisfied with their sharpness”

Cutlery made in France in Parisian restaurants

“It’s important for me to choose products made by French artisans. That’s why I bought the knives from the Dozorme factory. All my dishes are French and Mexican. Finally, it’s my way of valuing the know-how of these two countries that are so dear to my heart.” says Enrique CASARRUBIAS.
And at the end of the service, a ritual is required: the Dozorme knives are immersed in olive oil to feed their olive handles and keep the glow of the wood and this, “for a week”, before new clients local, gourmands or tourists do not come to eat in this beautiful Parisian address.

Stéphane Trapier

Stéphane Trapier

It is in this unique setting that we find the brand Dozorme. For 2 years, the cutlery industry in Thiers has collaborated with this national heritage monument for the cutting of an emblematic dish of the establishment “duck with blood” or “duckling Frédéric Delair”. Stéphane Trapier, Director of the restaurant, explains “Born in 1890 under the leadership of Frédéric Delair, maître d’hôtel became owner in the mid-nineteenth century, this recipe is fully codified. It requires a very specific cut that requires to have very good knives. In the past, we had the opportunity to test the Dozorme kitchen knives through the Federation des Fromagers de France, which collaborates with the cutlery industry. The cutting edge and design of the Dozorme knives combined with the invaluable know-how of this century-old brand have immediately seduced us”.

For the “Frédéric Delair duckling” cut, Stéphane Trapier chose two Dozorme knives with very specific characteristics: the 1902 and Haute Cuisine. Proposed with its handle in Rosewood, the 1902 kitchen knife has a fairly rigid blade that allows lifting the thighs. As for the Haute Cuisine knife, its blade more flexible allows precision work, ideal for lifting the breasts.
These 2 Dozorme knives are also used for cutting lamb or foie gras.

I knew then, of reputation, the city of Thiers and its ancestral know-how in the manufacture of knives of quality less the cutlery Claude Dozorme. So we met: after explaining my request, she told me the story of the family factory and introduced me to the various products crafted in the heart of his workshop near Thiers. I really could appreciate the brand’s knives “.

His choice was immediately focused on the new range of kitchen knives imagined and designed by Thomas Bastide and named Flat Cut. What seduced him? The resolutely modern design of these kitchen knives and their originality with their asymmetrical shape and the inclination of the handle.
