Michelin 2013

2012_10_Michelin-thumb.jpgFollowing yesterday's reveal of the 2013 Michelin starred restaurants, Vanity Fair's A.A. Gill files on the evolution of the guide and the "legion of miserable gourmands" it has created:"Having made the hierarchy of chefs, the guide found that it was in its interest to maintain it. A handful of grand and gluttonous kitchens seemed to keep their rating long after their fashion and food faded. Michelin evolved from the wandering Candide of food to become the creeping Richelieu: manipulative, obsessive, and secretive." [Vanity Fair]
