The mission of Youmiam is to give food enthusiasts the best possible ways to share their love of cooking and the culinary arts in general, with friends, followers and fans. Welcome to Youmiam.
To be Pronounced [ You - Me - Yum ], Youmiam is the story of three passionate foodie friends who truly believe that food was made for sharing. Creative like they are, they had enough of not being able to share their recipes easily with friends. And, realizing that there is a lot more to a recipe than bullet points, they developed a fast, fun and beautiful way to post and share recipes."
We are committed to providing food enthusiasts with the means to foster exchange through food in a fun and friendly way via our beautifully designed and simple to use online recipe sharing app. We also cherish the idea, of getting the community into the kitchen full of inspiration and gaining new culinary skills along the way. For this, we’ll need the contribution, talent and generosity of all you talented chefs (and aspiring chefs). Our values lie in authenticity, simplicity and hospitality, which is where we would like both Youmian and our community to feel akin.
Theo’s studies at ESCP Europe were a window open for him to the World. Enterprising and guided by his love of cooking, rock music and theater, he spent four years mulling ideas and his vision of what he wanted to do, intermitted with fortuitous encounters and incredible work experience: marketing and sales for Champagne Henriot in NYC, voluntary work with handicapped children in Vietnam, and marketing trainee for Danone Argentina. It was on this journey of "globe-cooking" that he fostered the idea of Youmiam..
Antoine’s appetite is written in his genes, normal for someone with parents like his (his mom is a food writer and dad a culinary publisher). An ESSEC graduate, Antoine honed his propensity for entrepreneurship by working for startups across the Channel, fund «venture-capital» in GB. Then to whet his appetite, he travel around the States and South East Asia. Hungry for more adventure in the form of food, new technologies and innovative, he co-founded Youmiam.
Graduate of EPITECH, Anthony was born to be an entrepreneur. He enjoys developing codes to carry out his inventions and he succeeds every time. After a year’s study in California USA, he joined Youmiam’s staff where he knew he would get the opportunity to reveal his web designer and solutions talents. He holds the secret hope of going back one day, across the pond, to teach his surfer friends how to make a veal Blanquette (French dish).
Anatole turns ideas and concepts into high quality and reliable visual reality. Even if he was to put canned beans up on the screen, they would look awesome. Already busy developing ingenious projects for himself, he graciously sets aside some time in his busy agenda for Youmiam.
Guillaume’s idea of hapiness is the sound of good rock music, the thrill he gets when he rides his motorcycle, and sharing scrummy food with his loved ones. Cool and collected, with a heightened sense for aesthetic design, Guillaume joined our team to support Anthony with the development of Youmiam. Much to our delight, as it turns out he works really efficiently, to music, and is dedicated to awesome food. We’re all so glad to have him on board!
Benjamin’s game design savvy is remarkable, favoring quality, intelligence and simplicity when he designs, to enhance the user experience. He anticipates all the scenarios possible to produce, for you, a highly intuitive and well thought out product. You would have to agree with him there!
Camille’s passion for food and cooking expresses itself with sincerity and generosity in countless ways: whether it be in the hub of service in the dining room or wine cellar at the “Insolite” restaurant, her inspired pen when writing for the startup “1001 menus” or at the click of her camera to feed his blog. Such energy has naturally led her to establish “We Art Next "and join the Youmiam adventure, bringing with her, her “happy content” experience and a multitude of skills, to share with all you food lovers.
Youmiam is a recipe sharing site for creative foodie enthusiasts, if you are too and would like to give them the best and meet all the challenges it might take to achieve this, then take place at our table.

Entrepreneur et musicien (The Green Olive), Martin est surtout passionné de bons vins et de bonnes bouffes. Pas étonnant que l’on se soit bien entendus.
