ITALY VS. FRANCE. THE MICHELIN GUIDE HAS NO DOUBTS AS FAR AS HIGH END RESTUARANTS GO. IN THE FRENCH EDITION OF THE RED GUIDE, THERE ARE 27 3 STARS (AND A NEW ENTRY, CHEF YANNICK ALLÉNO’S LE 1947), 86 2 STARS (12 NEW) AND 503 1 STARS (57 NEW)

Competition and comparison have always been the basis of the relationship between Italy and France, in all fields – sports, economics, art, politics, and, the most contentious one, food and wine, played on numerous levels, from wine to catering. The gap, in the wine world, has thinned dramatically in recent years, while at the table it is much more difficult to make comparisons. This is mainly because the touchstone indicating the catering status of each individual country is the French guide, Michelin. it must be pointed out that the authority and importance of the guide goes abundantly beyond the borders of France.
Nearly three months after the Italian edition was presented (which we wrote about at length, https://goo.gl/iGaQAO), the moment most awaited finally arrived: the French version of the “Red Guide” 2017.
The guide reconfirms France’s undisputed primacy, which Italy sees only from a distance. There are 27 three stars (Italy instead stops at 8), thanks to the new entry of Chef Yannick Alléno’s Restaurant Le 1947 as well as 86 two stars and 12 new entries (compared to Italy’s 41 ), and 503 one stars, counting 57 new restaurants (Italy, 294).
It is quite literally a panorama of stars narrated in the 2.000 pages of the guide, including reviews of the 500 new entries that underline Yannick Alléno’s triumph, who was already at the top of the Michelin guide with the same name Alléno Paris - Pavillon Ledoyen. The French gastronomic landscape is also the centrality of Paris.
12 new stars in the capital have been added to the already long list, which now includes over 107 starred restaurants (10 three-stars, 17 two-stars and 80 one star), of which a new one was awarded to a young Italian chef, Simone Zanoni, in the kitchen of Le George, restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel George V. The sour point is the almost total absence of women chefs among the new entries, with the exception of Fanny Rey, though she is paired with Jonathan Wahid, at the same named restaurant in Saint-Remy.
