Michelin Red Guides – Highest Rank of Restaurants

Sunday, 30 January 2011

Michelin Red GuidesToday people require higher standards in almost every single sphere of activity since they feel they are worth better services and goods. And most things depend on the opinion and statements of critics to have the utmost final decision. And Michelin Red Guides is the essentially vital tool to evaluate and appraise restaurants by fixed and stable criteria accepted by people.

Michelin Red Guides is nothing but the most competent and authoritative rating of restaurants made annually. Yet, in 1900, when the guide was initiated, it has nothing to do with restaurants. Andre and Edward Michelin, the founders of the world-known company-manufacturer of automobile tires, got anxious on how to attract more clients. And they came with the brilliant idea to distribute free-of-charge reference books among the car owners which told on where hotels, petroleum stations and auto parks were located. And no restaurant was mentioned there in those books and only in 1920 the catering institutions were included in the book. Though, the book was not the rating that time but the mere list of cafes and restaurants which are located in France. And the restaurants with high prices were marked with stars. Since 1926 when the Micheline Red guide got the fame and popularity and the prestigious book was put to sale, the approach to mark restaurants changed a little. The star was put opposite the institution with the perfect kitchen proved by many customers. In 30s the classification of restaurants reached three stars and in general it came to the way we know it now.

These three stars evaluate the quality of cuisine of particular kitchen of particular restaurant. It is quite simple to evaluate the quality of cuisine since too many components should be considered. When considering the matter at a simple view, one star is provided for the very good kitchen, two stars are given for ideal kitchen which is perfect to cause reproaches, and the third star is provided to the kitchen where the chief is the real genius of culinary art. These Michelin stars matter for any restaurateurs and chefs as well as Oscar Award brings fame and reputation to show-biz persons. The stars give the status, fame and theopportunity that the income will only increase since the star is attached to your place. Here is a nuance when the Oscar Award is given for ever to the nominate while the Michelin stars can be given and taken back, if the severe judges consider that the restaurant decreased the standard of quality.

It is curious but the precise criteria are not known to get those stars. The Michelin Red Guide publishers keep it confidential and it is reasonable. When the criteria are known to everyone, the restaurant owners will specially accentuate the weaker points to get the star which is not good and which allows decreasing the attention to other aspects of restaurant business.

Though, some information is known. Michelin does not favor for restaurants without the corporate chef and the best cuisine. However, fourteen criteria are known to make the reputation for the restaurant worthy a star.

The personalities who judge the restaurants are not known to wide public, either. These judges never inform anybody on the visit; they come incognito in the restaurant as ordinary visitors. After they put orders and taste dishes, they reserve the right to reveal themselves or not. It is up to them. If the cuisines are bad in quality, the Michelin judge just pays or it and leaves the restaurant. When wine and dishes are worthy tasting, the visitor asks to get introduced to office facilities, and organize the brief talk to the chef and the owner. After the owners wait for the new edition of the Michelin Red Guide.

There is no official information that judges of the most prestigious restaurant rating favor for the French cuisine though the fact that the most restaurants marked by the Guide and restaurants with three stars are located in France is too suspicious. The top position among three-star restaurants for the year 2009 by the Michelin Red Guide is kept by France with 26 restaurants in total. The second place goes to Japan with 9 marked restaurants and the third place is shared by Germany and Spain.

Whatever people discuss about preferences and tastes of judges to acquire stars of prestige and reputation, the restaurants in many countries are not marked at all. And Russia is one of countries where no single restaurant is marked with a singe star, though it does not prove at all that Russian cuisine is not worth tasting and enjoying. And this refers to cuisine of many countries that can boast with wholesome and tasty food , but that are not to rentable to keep and pay for the chef to be number one in this sphere.
