Our story

After having discovered « L’Avenue des Gourmets » in 2016,« Eater National » in 2014 and« Le S » in 2012 for the older of us, we wanted to create our own project of entrepreneurship.

We are 19 students in Hospitality & Catering industry and we have the chance to create our own Start'Up. After having elected the different members in each department, we began to define our concept. This is what characterizes our company, which differentiated us on the Egast exhibition, professional event gathering all the professionals of the Hotel and Catering industry. We are proud to present you « Cook Me Up », our pop’up restaurant.


Thanks to « Entreprendre Pour Apprendre », we get advices and support throughout our adventure. Our school also supports us in our approach by allowing us to use its premises for our daily operations : meetings, cooking tests in particular, while keeping our independence and an identity quite distinct from that of the high school. In fact, each student participates in this project on a voluntary basis and in parallel with studies

This adventure allows us to participate in the creation of a company and all it includes: personnel management, choice of suppliers, definition of a concept, cost control ... but also a personal and professional enrichment. In addition, the charity aspect is an important point of the outcome of our project: all our profits will be given to various charities in the region.

A unique and rewarding project that we hope will make you want to follow us.


The Concept

« 1 Product, 3 Cooking, 1000 Flavors » is our course of action

We offer you to discover 1000 flavors through a single product, thanks to different cooking method

You can choose:

  • Your product: beef, prawns or poultry
  • Your cooking: wok, papillote or Fusio Eberhardt Brothers.

We give you the opportunity to choose your base product, but also the way to cook it. Thanks to this concept, we create a culinary experience as well as a personalized experience for the custome

About the desserts, we decided to associate to two base products: a fruit and a vegetable. Another opportunity to discover new flavors for the customers

On the exhibition, you can also find our take-away stand with various hot and cold preparations, but also our fresh juice bar prepared by us.

Being students, our project is born of the initiative and the motivation of each one of the 19 of us. In order to finance all the needs required for the creation of a company, we have partners who support us by graciously giving us their equipment to allow us to welcome you during Egast.

But that's not all, we need you. Thanks to our KissKissBankBank, you have the opportunity to support us financially. Your donations will allow us to finance the purchase not only of some of the restaurant furniture, but also the raw materials needed by our kitchen team and the drinks of our restaurant.
