1494 ratings | 162467 views
Five of the greatest French Michelin-starred chefs pay tribute to their local food producers and reveal the secrets of their cuisine. In this journey to the six corners of France, each chef shows us his region, its most beautiful sights and the women and men (fishermen, breeders, market gardeners, cheese makers, bakers…) who provide him with outstanding produce. With French cuisine recently added to the Intangible World Heritage list, this film pays tribute to the people who are helping to maintain its reputation.

Totaal achterhaald dit soort onzin! Een Team gaat wel even zeggen wat een zgn ster waardig is..?? Men krijgt een bordje met een gerecht die men bij wijze moet zoeken middels een micoscoop en flik in de buidel mag tasten..een elite club! daarmee zeg ik niet dat d chef's niet kunnen koken!! maar het iedee dat er een paar mensen zijn die bepalen..echt zielig!!

I grew up on a farm and we use to cater for people. Then I went to cooking school and now I find myself wanting to grow all my food ingredients so I can flavor them with love. Then cook them for everyone.

If only we had more chefs like this in America.

+Thibault Papin .... I'm sure some do. But they are still restricted by the government on what products they can and can't use. Like if one wanted to go and forge for ingredients to serve in their restaurant and make money off it they can't. If no money was to be exchanged one could forge for ingredients to serve. The people in the government here just want to control everything they can. In Europe telling someone they can't forge for a restaurant is like slapping them in the face. It's in their ancestry. It's in ours also but most Americans as a whole are to caught up in technology to know even know nature exists. The government makes sure of that.

Translation: Devote your life to killing animals in ever more creative ways all the while keeping a running commentary about how you respect them. Find innovative ways to use their body parts all the while referring to them as 'protein' to mask the terrible pain and suffering you have caused real, living beings. Charge exorbitant prices to people with little more important to live for than what they put in their mouths. Call it a culture.

Who writes this shit? This first French Chef and his staff " Defy the laws of Physics" So, what do they do to defy the laws of Physics? Overcome Gravity? Turn the theory of relativity on its head? Nope, they cook food on a hill! Really, there truly are some arseholes that write this garbage. Imagine his stress levels too when he has to put up with terrible things like water not boiling at 100C due to the altitude, can you imagine how difficult it must be to make a cup of tea when the water boils at 98C instead of 100C, I don't know how they manage it! They put men on the moon but cannot get water to boil at 100C incredible. Pretentious French Twat!

The pretension is strong with this video. There's passion and then there's arrogance. French chefs seem to have a lot of both.
David Louis (2 months ago)
Jay Y and that is why we are the best !!! Arrogance is ok when you are the best actually ok bye 👋
megafaune75 (3 months ago)
pretention is better than presuming. that's why French maybe sounds arrongant because they know what their talking about since 1500 years.

How often have you eaten it? Not in some quasi-French restaurant, but somewhere with a French-run kitchen, maybe a French chef - maybe even in France? What experience are you speaking from?
Soriki (6 months ago)
Oh really? Upload a video of going to one of their top restaurants, try the food while recording yourself, around other people sitting right next to you, and you won't be able to say that with a straight face :)

No wonder the French are good chefs and cyclists. They think about new recipes and ideas while cycling. I think michelin quality recipes originate from the Tour De France.

FYI in France there is actually a pastry called 'paris-brest' which is one stage of the tour de France lol

Keep it fresh, clean, simple and you can't go wrong. Usually if something tastes flat it just needs salt.

Nanderlizer Nanderlizer Whatever you see, you know nothing about it! neither in French cuisine nor in French themselves, stay in your jealousy! you are uneducated and you made yourself that on your prejudging on the French it is lamentable!

What a bunch of fucking cunts can't even cook toast
GrowingDownUnder (10 months ago)
I'd like to see more about how they prepare the food, not where the food comes from
Trevor Carter (28 days ago)
All prep is just portioning out meats and anything else that needs to be pre weighed. You will also need to top up your ingredients you will be needing the whole night before hand ex: veggies, sauces topped off, salad bar full for the night. Checking expirary dates on stuff that might or might not be able to use to avoid anyone getting sick. Alot more stuff aswell. Its a highly stressfull job. Being a cook is great though. 10 hour days/5 days a week is an easy 50 hour week not to mention tips are great. And they add up quicker than you think im getting $1000 plus tips every 2 weeks. So about $1200 bucks every 2 weeks. Roughly 2400 bucks a month. Its worth it for someone who has a passion for it.

yes meat must be cooked
Epicci (5 months ago)
+Raphaël D Yeah I'd prefer cooked pig, raw meat really isn't humans food..
Raphaël D (6 months ago)
where the food comes from is the most important thing. When the food is good, you don't need a lot of fancy stuff, you can even eat it raw, it will be good.

+Pel Pan Nah I don't wanna get acid thrown in my face and stabbed in the gut in London :) Just kidding haha, I don't live in London and have no interest in going, nor in NY And nah, what I'm saying is a counter-argument to when people stupidly say "The portions are too small" When just 1 plate isn't the thing you're going to be getting, you're likely to have a full course of different things, thus why I said, higher variety, easier not to get bored, and of higher quality than some random shitty overpriced restaurant or garbage fast food; You don't go there because you're starving to death and you're trying to survive your venture through a dense rainforest in the middle of nowhere, you're there to eat delicious meals you can't get anywhere else, like you said-As you'd find in any other 3 Star Michelin restaurants for that matter, for varying prices, obviously depending if you're there alone or with more people https://www.gordonramsayrestaurants.com/restaurant-gordon-ramsay/menus/#Lunch%20Menu You can buy a full meal for 1200 if you want as long as it fits your budget For example, you just have to buy the equivalent of a big fried chicken with some rice and vegetables My point is that price is something that shouldn't be even thought about or considered when you're going to what you called "highly reviewed" places, your intention is far more important, and budget is not an issue People who complain about the portions being small don't understand that you eat more than what it is normally shown on videos (They don't usually show you all the dishes you'll eating) And don't understand that normal people don't get there every day after lunch to satisfy their hunger lol, they go there from time to time for some amazing shit and "Portions too small for the price" is not something they're thinking about
Pel Pan (4 months ago)
+Soriki Or you could just visit a Gordon Ramsay restaurant in London or NY for 300$. Or any other number of 3 Michelin star restaurants for that matter, all for 300-700$. Following your own logic, it makes no sense to splurge 1200 on one meal when there's options that are reviewed more highly, for half the price.
Soriki (6 months ago)
Not made for people like you who can't afford it lol People who pay for these go for taste After eating too much of low quality food you won't be able to eat anymore and it won't taste as good But you can eat much more in higher variety because it is smaller, not to mention, you're not only going to eat 1 thing

I notice one thing watching this video... And that's is every in the video wether farmer , fisherman , or chief they are all passionate about what they do.
paul sleeping (1 month ago)
lin juan So true. I've watched so many shows like this one. All Michelin chefs are ultra passionate about what they do. And all of them always source their food locally and freshness is overall key. And some of them actually have their own farms that grow produce they need.
Soriki (6 months ago)
Hmmm, if you're right, I wonder why people are not eating your food or other low tier/low rank cooks, but instead, they choose to go for what these high rank michelin star chefs make... Because it's better lol, if the rich man that asks for the best of the best chooses it, you can clearly see why lmao, because it's good, if people didn't like it so much, they wouldn't blow hundreds on it, maybe some pretentious people would, but there's still many people that go to these places simply because they know they can get great food out of it, and they have 0 care for the atmosphere or the expensive feel to everything
no theyre not theyre fucking idiots ive worked with many of these so called chefs and every last one of them have their heads up their asses... and more times than not they fuck up recipes and ruin the flavors of food .... in stead of keeping things simple they make shit that much more difficult . they all let the that title of chef get to their fucking heads when in actuality being a chef is nothing more than a glorified cook who has his way

the maximum you can get is 3 stars, no such thing as 5 star

I got the title wrong... I thought it meant chefs with five stars, which is impossible of course. My mistake :)
Kyle Patton (11 months ago)
Khrist75 that's awfully prejudiced of you. I give all cultures a chance to provide excellence in food. I see a lot of prowess in the chefery of many different races. To be excellent, you must have an open mind, and embrace diversity. Otherwise you are nothing more than a single faceted cook, completely average in my opinion.
