In Paris, Alain Ducasse elevates the competition meals expertise

by Editorial Team

In a three-sided tent backstage at a music competition in woodland on the japanese outskirts of Paris, a pair of radio DJs are gassing up, dwell on air throughout France, one of many headliners.

It’s not We Love Inexperienced’s opening night time high draw, Nigerian Afrobeats famous person Burna Boy. Nor the Saturday night time bill-toppers, returning French dance legends Justice. And it’s not Sunday’s main-stage nearer, American R&B heavyweight SZA, warming up for her present in the identical slot at Glastonbury later this month.

Non, c’est un chef.

‘We’d prefer to introduce Alain Ducasse,’ start Marie Misset and Marine Baousson, French-speaking hosts of a day by day drivetime present on France Inter, a BBC Radio 1-like station that’s ‘left wing and really cultural and [for] younger folks’, based on one of many group overseeing this exterior broadcast.

Then, turning to deal with their 67-year-old visitor, a person shod in festival-unfriendly white Armani trainers and topped with a designer baseball cap that claims ‘Capitaine’: ‘You personal 34 eating places in 9 nations and have 19 Michelin stars. You may have fed quite a few presidents, kings and queens. And 1717353817 you might be co-president of the We Love Inexperienced meals committee. It’s very stylish to have a meals committee with Alain Ducasse. What are you doing right here at a music competition the place it’s extra regular to eat merguez [sausage] than Michelin-starred meals?’

What certainly. Music festivals, actually within the UK, traditionally supply each sorts of meals: fried and greasy. With booze on their brains and (not unusually) mud on their toes, that’s what gig-goers need and that’s what they get. For all of the culinary revolution catalysed by the unfold of ‘street-food’ tradition and the concomitant wider provision of other cuisines at Glastonbury et al, their grubby grub spine stays the identical: murder-burgers, sloppy noodles, all-dough pizzas, slug-like chips.
