Paul Bocuse

French Chef of Nouvelle Cuisine, Restaurateur and winner of French Legion of Honor

"It is our duty to give meaning to the life of future generations by sharing our knowledge and experience; by teaching an appreciation of work well done and a respect for nature, the source of all life; by encouraging the young to venture off the beaten path and avoid complacency by challenging their emotions."

"Life is too short for cuisine minceur and for diets. Dietetic meals are like an opera without the orchestra."

"The so-called nouvelle cuisine usually means not enough on your plate and too much on your bill."

"Without butter, without eggs, there is no reason to come to France. "
