When you look out across the world of food, you realize just how diverse we are. Just as there are many different continents and countries, there are many different cuisines. Becoming a top chef takes a lot of hard work and dedication. The skills you have to learn to be able to create certain recipes take time and patience to master.
While training to become a top chef is hard enough in its own right, with so many different tools and techniques to get used to, French cuisine is typically one of the hardest to master. This is partly due to the ingredients you’re likely to work with, but also because of some of the techniques involved in cooking them.
However, there are a few chefs out there who have nailed this cuisine down to a fine art (and no, they aren’t all French):
Alain Ducasse is probably the most well-known French chef of this era. He is a pure genius when it comes to food. He is a master of all things relating to French cuisine and holds more current Michelin stars than any other chef in the world – a staggering 19!
He even sent some of his culinary delights into space for astronauts at the International Space Center to chow down on.
Gordon Ramsay is a 7 Michelin star chef and a Scottish-born celebrity chef. He has proved his cooking abilities time and time again, even with the French cuisine. You’ll find many a sumptuous delight on the menu at Gordon’s fine-dining French restaurant Au Trianon, including Blue Lobster and Spiced duck from Les Dombes.
Despite the fact that she’s never had any formal culinary training, Anne-Sophie Pic has no less than 8 Michelin stars under her belt. Being a native of France, Anne-Sophie has mastered the gastronomy of the country very well and has some amazing dishes, including a very tasty sardine rillette with whiskey, creamy cauliflower.
