Monsieur Paul was a French chef based in Lyon who was known for the high quality of his restaurants and his innovative approaches to cuisine Former student of Eugenie Brazier also called “La Mère Brazier”, Paul was one of the most promising chef working on the “Nouvelle Cuisine”

 

Monsieur Paul was really committed to the French Gastronomy. He trained some of the best chefs that are performing nowadays. Since 1987, the Bocuse d’Or was seen as the most prestigious award for Chefs around the world. Monsieur Paul himself received numerous awards throughout his career, including the medal of Commandeur de la Légion d'honneur.

 

The culinary institute of America honoured Monsieur Paul in their Leadership Awards Gala on 30 March 2011. He received the "Chef of the Century" award. In July 2012

 

In 1975, he created “La soupe aux truffes” for a presidential dinner at the Elysée Palace. Since then, the soup has been served in Bocuse's restaurant near Lyon as Soupe V.G.E. VGE being the initials of former president of France Valéry Giscard d'Estaing.

 

Monsieur Paul's main restaurant is the luxury restaurant l'Auberge du Pont de Collonges, near Lyon, which has been serving a traditional menu for decades. It is one of a small number of restaurants in France to receive a three-star rating by the Michelin Guide. He also operated a chain of brasseries in Lyon, named Le Nord, l'Est, Le Sud and l'Ouest, each of which specializes in a different aspect of French cuisine.
