Mon Dieu!

It seems the French have finally adopted an American culinary innovation! More and more French people are hiring Personal Chefs to cook special dinners in their homes. This article in French Entrée talks about Un Chef Chez Vous:

"Employing a Chef to cook all your meals is traditionally the preserve of royalty and the super-rich. But now a phenomenon imported from the US is changing the culinary habits of France. Instead of going out to dinner, the French are increasingly likely to employ a chef for the evening, entertaining friends or business colleagues in the comfort of their own home.

Emmanuel works alone, but manages to find the time to choose all of his ingredients himself. He emphasises the importance of quality ingredients in creating a gourmet dish, and enjoys making his selections from the colourful local markets. He has settled in Antibes, on the glamourous Côte d’Azur, where there is always plenty of fresh, local produce to choose from, and a wealth of customers wanting some luxury."

Hey, we American Personal Chefs do the same thing! ;-)

Thanks to faithful reader and listener Sandy Scolnick in Bretagne for the heads up.
