Celebrated French chef gives up top award

Signal of change / Celebrated French chef gives up top award

By Neil Gunn / 22 Sep 2017

A three-Michelin-starred chef from southern France has requested to be removed from the famous list, the first French chef to ever do so.

"Bras said he wanted to be allowed to cook excellent food away from the frenzy of star ratings and the anxiety over Michelin’s anonymous food judges, who could arrive at his restaurant at any moment."

Maybe he just achieved everything he wanted to and no longer wanted the stress of maintaining the extremely high standards, or it could be a signal of a shift in the ultra-competitive world of award winning cooking.

What might the implications of this be? What related signals of change have you seen?

Thanks for sharing this Neil, a very interesting and subtle shift away from competition as the mode of life.
