by Diana Zorzi

Located in the popular district of Blosne, in Rennes, the participatory restaurant La Grenouille à Grande Bouche has closed its doors after two years of activity. The establishment had launched an innovative solidarity concept and was the origin of the publication of a quarterly magazine dedicated to gastronomy. The sale of their equipment as well as their magazines will be organized on April 26 by Gauducheau & Jézéquel.

The big mouth frog will not have survived the health crisis. The Rennes restaurant, located in the Torigné shopping center, declared bankruptcy after two years of activity. The establishment had initiated an original concept of participatory restaurant, inspired by Canada, in this popular neighborhood in the south of Rennes. ” It was a unique restaurant with a social and supportive dimension, details auctioneer Xavier Gauducheau. Their profits were redistributed to a neighborhood caretaker, Au P’tit Blosneur, and volunteers could lend a hand every day. La Grenouille à Grande Bouche had managed to bring together a hundred volunteers who worked in the kitchen, in the dining room or with the editorial staff of a quarterly magazine dedicated to the culinary world. ” Twelve volumes of an elegant 112-page mook that tells the story of society through what we eat, mixing research reports, interviews, chronicles, documents, literary writings, photographs and, of course, recipes. », summarizes the auctioneer.
