Every year, the famous French gastronomic guide, The Michelin Guide, awards one, two, or three stars to the best restaurants. These stars are a symbol of excellence for a restaurant, and an honorary title for the Chefs awarded them. More than 30 million copies of the guide are sold, it can be found in 23 countries including France, The United Kingdom and Japan.
New to the 2016 Michelin Guide is the “plate” pictogram which rewards all the restaurants mentioned in the guide that have not been awarded stars.
Le Cordon Bleu Paris is lucky to have a number of Michelin starred Chefs and Chefs who have worked for Michelin starred restaurants in its team of Chef Instructors:
- Chef Eric Briffard, who was awarded 1 Michelin star for his restaurant at the Château de Fère en Tardenois in 1991, then 2 stars in 2000 and in 2007 when he was in charge of the Les Elysées du Vernet restaurant in Paris. In 2008, he receives 2 stars once again while running the Four Seasons Hôtel George V kitchens in Paris: Le Cinq.
