It is not often you meet someone who has voluntarily given up on having three Michelin stars, even if recently we have seen a handful of great chefs do it, or claim they did it. But even in this case Alain Senderens was a precursor. He “handed in” his three stars in 2005, after 28 years. Before that he had been a pioneer in many ways, since he began in the kitchen in 1957: classic cuisine, nouvelle cuisine, wine and food cuisine, japanophile cuisine, and most recently democratic haut-cuisine. There are many reasons for anyone to listen to what he has to say.

Senderens died recently. A few years ago we met over lunch in his restaurant, called simply Alain Senderens.
