‘They said we used cheddar!’: chef demands removal from Michelin Guide
Marc Veyrat of La Maison des Bois stated he had actually been depressed for months after losing a sought after star following amateur examination
Knives are being honed in the elite world of French gastronomy after a well-known chef required that his dining establishment, which just recently lost among its 3 stars, be withdrawn from the Michelin Guide — a demand the publishers of the renowned red book have actually declined.
In a remarkable letter, exposed by Le Point , Marc Veyrat railed versus his demotion in January, voicing his doubts that the guide’s inspectors had actually even visited his dining establishment, La Maison des Bois, in the Haute Savoie.
“I have actually been depressed for 6 months. How attempt you take the health of your chefs captive?” composed Veyrat, who is understood for his signature black hat. When Gordon Ramsay was removed of a Michelin star at his New York dining establishment, he compared the experience to losing a sweetheart and losing the Champions League.
Veyrat knocked the “extensive incompetence” of the guide’s inspectors. “They attempted to state that we put cheddar in our souffle of beaufort, reblochon and tomme! They have actually insulted our area; my staff members raged,” he stated, according to Le Monde . “When we have eggs from our chickens, milk from our cows, and 2 botanists gather our plants every early morning!”
