Michelin Frankreich 2016: Über fünfzig neue Sterne!

Eifelturm in ParisZwei berühmte Pariser Gourmet-Tempel erhielten in diesem Jahr ihren dritten Stern: Das ‚Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée'. Die Tester von Michelin fanden, dass eine Mahlzeit hier ein „unverwechselbares Erlebnis“ sei. Und das 'Le Cinq' im Hotel George V. Chef Christian Le Squer sei, so der Michelin 2016, "ein leuchtendes Beispiel für die wahre französische Küche“. Außerdem erhielten 10 Restaurants ihren zweiten Stern und 42 Etablissements ihren ersten Stern.

Auszug aus der Pressemeldung:

The 2016 selection has also expanded with 10 new two star restaurants: JY’S, Jean-Yves SCHILLINGER’s restaurant in Colmar, Joël ROBUCHON’s La Grande Maison in Bordeaux, Jean-Georges KLEIN’s La Villa René Lalique in Wingen-sur Moder, the 1920 in Megève, where Julien GATILLON officiates, and Nicolas DECERCHI’s Paloma in Mougins. Of the new two star restaurants, half are Paris chefs who all took up post in 2015: Christophe MORET’s l’Abeille, Jérôme BANCTEL’s Le Gabriel, Mathieu PACAUD’s Histoires, Sylvestre WAHID’s Sylvestre and Jean-François PIEGE’s Le Grand Restaurant. A feat rare enough to be mentioned, which demonstrates the attractiveness and vitality of the French capital. "The strong attraction exerted by Paris on chefs is a particularly striking element in the 2016 selection," says Michael Ellis. "Whether small bistros or more luxurious restaurants, chefs and investors continue to believe in Paris. Moreover, among the 380 establishments that appear in the Guide for the first time, 100 are in Paris."

42 restaurants acquire their first star in the 2016 edition of the MICHELIN Guide. Chefs, driven by the great wealth and exceptional diversity of produce in France, offer high quality cuisine in all four corners of France. With a concern for the environment, they continue to favour short circuits and work with local producers. Careful about controlling their prices and meeting customer expectations, many of them manage to offer high quality food hand in hand with reasonable prices. For example, La Table de Merville in Toulouse, Initial in Caen and le Château de Sable in Porspoder in the Finistère area are all honoured this year and offer lunch for under 26 euros.

As for the younger generation, the future of French gastronomy is safe in their hands. A number of young chefs receive their first MICHELIN Guide star - for example Angelo FERRIGNO at La Maison des Cariatides in Dijon, the youngest in the selection aged just 23, and Jean-Baptiste LAVERGNE-MORAZZANI, the 24 year old chef at La Table du 11, in Versailles.

Finally, this year the inspectors also noticed how French cuisine is attracting foreign chefs, who come from all over the world to train in France before opening their own establishments. Of the 7 new one star restaurants in Paris, 3 are run by Japanese chefs, all of whom trained with top French chefs: Hideki Nishi’s Neige d’Eté, Ryuji Teshima’s Pages and chef Nakatani’s eponymous restaurant. Foreign chefs are also moving into the regions - in Nice the South African chef Jan HENDRICK offers creative, modern French cuisine in his restaurant JAN, in Lyon Passe-Temps is run by the Korean chef Younghoon LEE, and G.A au Manoir de Rétival is in the hands of the German chef.
