Thanks to French Chef Alain Ducasse’s restaurant at The Dorchester Hotel, Britain has something delicious to brag about. The restaurant earned the rare and prestigious top ranking of a three-star Michelin on Friday. Very proud Chef Ducasse joins other chefs Heston Blumenthal, Gordon Ramsay, and Alain Roux in the three-star elite club in the 2010 Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland. Ducasse said his team worked extremely hard to receive the award and to maintain the standard of excellence needed to achieve it. The restaurant pairs excellent cuisine with an unforgettable atmosphere and extraordinary service. Guide editor Derek Bulmer said chefs have to adapt to the changing eating habits of clients and learn how to be more resourceful. He seems optimistic for the future of the restaurant business and has noticed the increased emphasis on the consumer’s needs. The 2010 Michelin Guide, which has been the top food guide for over a century, comes out on Friday, January 22. This year’s guide recommended more than 1,900 hotels and guesthouses, and around 1,900 restaurants and pubs. If only we could eat with our eyes.
