Last month the prestigious Michelin Guide released its 2017 edition for France. Chef Yannick Alleno’s “Le 1947” at the Cheval Blanc Hotel, Courchevel was awarded three Michelin stars. “Le 1947” has become the 27th restaurant in France to receive the highest Michelin rating.
12 restaurants were promoted to two Michelin stars including Gordon Ramsay’s Le Pressoir d’Argent in Bordeaux. The 50-year-old chef became the first Briton to win two Michelin stars in France.
Situated on the first floor of the InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel, Le Pressoir d’Argent reinvents French cuisine promoting regional products such as vegetables from the Basque country, wine from Aquitaine, foie gras from the Landes and Breton lobster.
Gordon Ramsey offers a creative cuisine combining English products and French flavours in a welcoming and elegant atmosphere.
After receiving the Michelin stars Gordon Ramsay showed his enthusiasm: “I am so proud of the incredible team in Bordeaux, to win our second star. France is home to some of the best produce and wines in the world, but also championing produce from the British Isles such as venison from the Scottish countryside and sparkling wines from Kent, is what has made this restaurant exceptional. A big bravo to the team at Intercontinental Bordeaux – I’m very excited for the year ahead.“
