Celebrity global French chef, chef of all chefs, Alain Ducasse, did something stunning. No he did not throw his toque into his fireplace. He simply removed all meat items from his menu. La planète a des ressources rares, il faut la consommer plus éthiquement, plus équitablement (Planet earth has limited resources, one must use them more ethically and more fairly). WOW!
What is your reaction to this decision from one of the most influential chefs in the world? Personally, I am very happy about it and hope others will follow.
