The Great Chefs: Michel Roth

After working at the restaurant L'Auberge de l'Ill and Au Crocodile, in Alsace, France, Michel Roth joined the Ritz close to 25 years ago as a sous-chef, and worked his way up. After spending some time at Lasserre, a Paris institution, Roth returned to the Ritz Paris as the Head Chef of L'Espadon, without any doubt one of the top Paris kitchens, with a brigade of 80 chefs. The simplicity of flavors in his re-worked traditional recipes are the essence of his cuisine. For his tapenade recipe he chose to highlight the caper, an essential ingredient for tapenade which is often overshadowed by the powerful flavors of black olive and anchovy. ( One Michelin Star)
