William Ledeuil is awarded the 'Le Fooding' prize of honor for 2009
Tuesday 08 December 2009
Winner of the 2009 Le Fooding Prize of honor is William Ledeuil, head Chef at Paris's Ze Kitchen Galerie restaurant, who has described his style of cooking as a game.
Taking into account a given ingredient's natural flavor, color and architecture, Ledeuil believes a cook should "let imagination and sensitivity run free while respecting the classic base of a recipe." Not so far removed from the Le Fooding movement's own philosophy of mixing food with feeling.
Ledeuil (zekitchengalerie.fr) was awarded the title Monday night at the closing of Improper Food, a week-long Le Fooding event held in Paris.
