Michelin Debuts its 2018 stars
The Michelin guidebook is back in its country of origin and debuting the stars of 2018 for France. Two new restaurants have been honoured three-Michelin-stars which is big news, this gives a total of 28 three-star restaurants in France.
Chef Marc Veyrat's restaurant La Maison des Bois was one of this year’s three-star recipients, being the 3rd time he has gained this top honour. This is a high achievement for Veyrat who gave up cooking and his stars after a skiing accident as well as the restaurant being gutted by a fire in 2015. The restaurant at the Castellet Hotel in Var, headed by chef Christophe Bacquié was the 2nd restaurant to gain a third star this year.
The 28 French restaurants that have been honoured with the gastronomic sector's most coveted rating (3 stars) is a record number for any single country in the Michelin Guide.
