Auguste Escoffier – The Man Behind Modern Cuisine

How important is Auguste Escoffier? Just ask National Geographic, who did an entire segment on the acclaimed chef and his role in changing the way we look at food.

In a recent episode of Eat: The Story of Food, many different renowned chefs, food writers and even Michel Escoffier, the great grandson of the famous cook, came together to tell their individual takes on what made the revolutionary chef such a pronounced force in the modern culinary movement.

This video is just another example of how proud we are as a culinary school to align ourselves with the Escoffier name and everything it stands for.
