What about Italian technique?bimboman wrote:shanky wrote:I don’t agree.bimboman wrote:shanky wrote:The love affair with Michelin amuses me
It’s as if French cuisine, with the odd token asian joint in cynically chosen ‘key’ markets, entitles chefs to speak for the whole world.
Eh? Spain, Italy, UK. japan, etc.
What is also highly unlikely is eating a bad meal in a starred or listed restaurant.
Michelin has moved quite some way from “French” only foods.
Furthermore, I’d argue that the British are obsessed with getting a thumbs-up from France, when in reality, you shouldn’t.
So the Michelin listed and starred restaurants I’ve eaten in in Spain (best in world) or Italy (bit more hit and miss). Don’t actually exist ?
And it isn’t about thumbs up, it’s more that French classic technique saved “British cooking” ......
Anyway you stick with your “Hats” and we will be happy.
That certainly saved British TV chefs.
