Prestigious French Food Award Given To Vegan Chef For First Time

on 14 July 2017


For the first time ever, a plant-based chef has won the title of "maître restaurateur", for his restaurant Vegan Gorilla in France. The title 'maître restaurateur', which is reviewed every four years, is awarded to someone who is a professional chef by trade and has professional experience. The chef must work with fresh, raw produce. It is judged by an independent committee, then awarded by local representatives (on behalf of the French state). The eatery, in Nice, describes itself as 'vegan, bio and gluten-free'.It uses organic and sustainable produce. Dishes include fishless fishermen's stew, mushroom-based kefta over couscous, and strawberry cheesecake - as well as more traditional French-style meals like 'fauxmage' (vegan cheese) tartines. Berton, who came up with the idea of the restaurant with his vegan wife, worked in mainstream restaurants for two decades before committing to cooking plant-based food. (plantbasednews.org)
