French Chef Named Chef Of The Century


French Chef Named Chef Of The Century

1st Apr 2011

French Chef Paul Bocuse was named "chef of the century" by America's leading cooking school on Wednesday. The Culinary Institute of America named Bocuse the top chef of the 20th century, citing the 85-year-old's legendary career in which he transformed both food on plates and the lives of the people who cooked. Tim Ryan, president of the Institute said that Bocuse is one of the greatest, most significant chefs of all time. Ryan said Bocuse led the movement in the 1960s and 1970s in France that became known as "nouvelle cuisine" and was typified by experimentation, new care over presentation and attention to fresh ingredients. His Lyon restaurant L'Auberge has held a Michelin three-star grading - one of just a handful in the world - all the way back since 1965.
