The great restaurant

The great restaurants of that time embraced the same principles we still recognise today. It was simply less culinary and more celebratory. It was a place designed for fun and to be seen in while enjoying simple dishes. Salads and modest dressings still appeared on these menus.
Beginning in the 1960s, a new generation of chefs would change the status quo and reinvent this restaurant model. Their names were Bocuse, Guérard, Troisgros and Senderens, and they effectively reinvented this profession.

Tribute to Joël Robuchon

Precision, rigor, and technique. These are the main ingredients of Joël Robuchon cuisine. He, one of the greatest chef, who has died August 6th aged 73. His input is huge on French cooking. Over the years, he has managed to improve and refine classical French cuisine. Coming right after the Nouvelle Cuisine years, Joël Robuchon offered his own take on French Haute Cuisine, with what you could call a neo-classical inspiration. He would select carefully each ingredients, he would push the boundaries of technique with a surgical-like precision on cooking and plating.
