Delicious and exquisite things to eat

If the divine creator has taken pains to give us delicious and exquisite things to eat, the least we can do is prepare them well and serve them with ceremony. Fernand Point

Fernand Point (1897 – 1955) was a French restaurateur and is considered to be the father of modern French cuisine.  From his restaurant “La Pyramide” in Vienne, a town half an hour to the south of Lyon, he gained three Michelin stars and trained a generation of French master chefs. The restaurant was founded shortly after World War I. From its kitchen came the modern lightly thickened sauces, baby vegetables and other aspects of nouvelle cuisine.
