The influence of French gastronomy in the world

France’s influence is also its cuisine. When Italy shines in a popular way with its pastas and its pizzas, the Americans with their burgers and the Chinese with their “all you can eat” buffets, France influences the world through its gastronomy and its excellence; the qualitative more than the quantitative. Among the greatest French chefs is Alain Ducasse with his 21 stars and his

34 restaurants scattered around the world.

Compared to other cuisines, what would be the DNA of French cuisine? What are the challenges of continuously bringing your kitchen up to date? How can you reconcile running a 21st century brewery (

Champaux) and both a three-star restaurant located under the gold of Versailles (

Ore)?
