The world's best restaurant is French ... and the chef is from Argentina!

View 61 times

A restaurant in France’s Alpes Maritimes region leads this year’s ranking of the World's 50 Best RestaurantsThis is the first time that the British publication has had a French restaurant at the top of its annual ranking. Located in Menton, very close to the Italian border, Mirazur has long had a solid reputation in France, earning three stars in the Michelin Guide (2019) and four toques in the Gault & Millau (2010), the country’s two leading restaurant guides.

What makes Mirazur different is that it is the only three-star restaurant in France whose chef is a foreigner!  After arriving in France from Argentina in 2001 and training at a hotel school in La Rochelle, Colagreco worked with some of France’s leading chefs (Bernard Loiseau, Alain Passard, Alain Ducasse) before opening Mirazur in 2006.

Tributes to French cuisine and culinary arts

Just a few days back, the spotlight fell on French pastry-making, already world renowned, when the World's 50 Best Restaurants list accorded the honor of the world’s best pâtissier to Jessica Préalpato, pastry chef at Alain Ducasse’s Plaza Athénée in Paris. 

If a career in restaurants and culinary arts appeals to you, there’s no need to wait. Follow the leaders, and train in France! French higher education offers a vast array of options. You can enter at any level (secondary, bachelor, master) and choose from a wide variety of institutions, from hotel and culinary schools and professional/vocational programs in secondary schools to renowned cooking schools and institutes specializing in the hotel and culinary arts.

All of the options are laid out in Campus France’s profile of programs in gastronomy and the culinary arts. International students are warmly welcomed. Many thousands have already made the choice to learn hospitality à la française.
