As you may have heard, our next Box is curated around the theme, Le French Chef.
With this theme, there is no better occasion to talk about five French chefs that you should know!.
These are people who, over decades, have pioneered new ways of cooking, opened foundational restaurants that forever altered the dining landscape, and trained many of the younger cooks who are now taking over the game. From Alain Ducasse to the creator of the Cronut, these are chefs you want to know!
Alain Ducasse is regarded among the world’s best in the kitchen. Holding 21 Michelin Stars over the course of his career, this decorated Frenchman owns restaurants around the world, including in France, Japan, Mauritius, Hong Kong, and Lebanon.
