As a ‘foodaholic’ I do enjoy going to nice restaurants around the world. As a
souvenir I collect copies of the menus signed by the Chef when possible. I did
not want to keep the pleasure of reading these menus only to myself so on this
page you will find a photo of some of the menus.
These pages do not contain comments about these restaurants; it does not make
much sense judging the hard work of Chefs on one visit. Sadly this is what most
food critics and bloggers do to produce their uninteresting reports week after
week in newspapers and blogs and to promote the new fashionable restaurant.
These pages do not contain any ranking either. Ranking such as the one of a
British magazine for the so called ‘best in the world’ has no other goal than
make self-publicity, and is an absolute nonsense. Not only the selection process
is flawed but there is no such thing as ‘the best’. How could one ever compare
Adrià’s cuisine to Pacaud’s or Ramsay’s?
So for comments, I simply rely on the
Michelin red guide
which, although not perfect, has more than hundred years of anonymous
restaurant reviewing experience. The
Relais & Châteaux
guide is also a very reliable source.
