  • Le chef doublement étoilé a dirigé l’Hôtel de France à Auch pendant des années

"Il s'est battu jusqu'au bout contre un cancer du pancréas", a indiqué à l'AFP sa fille Ariane Daguin, confirmant une information du quotidien régional Sud-Ouest.

Le nom d'André Daguin, en France et à l'étranger, restera à jamais associé au magret de canard. Il s'est éteint chez lui, à Auch, la capitale du Gers, à deux pas de l'Hôtel de France. Il est décédé à son domicile d'Auch, à deux pas de l'Hôtel de France où trois générations de Daguin se sont succédé jusqu'en 1997, année où il avait cédé l'affaire au chef Roland Garreau, selon La Dépêche du Midi. Racheté ensuite par son père en 1926, l'Hôtel accueille André en cuisine à sa sortie de l'école hôtelière. Recettes et dialogue autour du canard " (Editions Sud Ouest, 2010) (1) écrit avec son fils Arnaud, il a siégé au Conseil économique et social et fondé et présidé la puissante Union des métiers de l'industrie hôtelière (UMIH), qui rassemble les professionnels de ce secteur, gérants de bar-PMU, de discothèque, ou restaurateurs. Il avait abandonné alors définitivement les fourneaux pour devenir porte-drapeau des hôteliers-restaurateurs, pendant une dizaine d'années. Le Gersois André Daguin était un fervent défenseur de la gastronomie française et des métiers de la restauration. C'était son cheval de bataille. Parmi ses revendications figurait la baisse du taux de TVA dans la restauration.

"Il avait une personnalité, une faconde, une présence, un charisme uniques". Sa recette de foie cuit au torchon l'a aussi rendu célèbre jusqu'aux États-Unis, où sa fille Ariane a créé en 1985 l'entreprise D'Artagnan (New York) qui fournit chefs et particuliers en foie gras, viande et charcuterie.

Adieu André Daguin. Homme engagé pour la défense du terroir, des bons produits et de la cuisine française.

"Une grande figure de l'Occitanie nous quitte", a réagi la présidente (PS) de la Région Occitanie, Carole Delga, sur Twitter.

"Par son travail et son talent, André #Daguin a révolutionné la cuisine du sud-ouest, lui donnant un écho international. Nous avions travaillé main dans la main pour mettre en place le label 'fait maison'", a-t-elle ajoutée.

Qualité rare et précieuse, c'était un optimiste volontaire avec toujours une idée ou un projet qui mijotait, ajoute encore Philippe MartinJoint par France 3 Occitanie, le président de la chambre d'agriculture du Gers se dit atterré. "André Daguin aura été, tout au long de sa vie, le plus extraordinaire et le plus intransigeant défenseur de notre Gascogne".
