Paul Bocuse belongs to a dynasty of cooks which goes back to the XVIIIth century. Born on February 11th, 1926 to Collonges-au-Mont d’Or, in the same house as he lives until he dies.
He dedicates all his life to the French gastronomy.
The French are proud of it : French cuisine is highly valued worldwide !
The evidence lies in the fact that Tokyo has the most Michelin-starred restaurants, but also the most French restaurants in a city abroad. Many Japanese chefs cook French ! Tokyo has an unsual love for our gastronomy. And the French word “restaurant” is used and understood in every country.
