In keeping with its strategy of making its flagship event more regional, the MICHELIN Guide France has chosen Alsace as the host region for the next MICHELIN Star Awards.
In collaboration with the Collectivité européenne d’Alsace, together with French and international chefs, pastry chefs, sommeliers, maîtres d’s, fine-dining professionals as well as journalists and influencers, the MICHELIN Guide will celebrate its new selection of restaurants on March 6, 2023 from Strasbourg, Alsace.
The MICHELIN Star Ceremony is a festive occasion for the entire profession to come together and discover the new restaurants that have been awarded one or more Stars by MICHELIN inspectors, those that have been awarded a Green Star and the professionals whose talent has been recognized with a Special Award.
From colorful villages to the banks of Petite France, from the slopes of the Alsatian vineyards to the buttresses of its castles, this event will also enable MICHELIN Guide guests to discover the diversity, richness and uniqueness of Alsace's terroirs.
"Alsace is one of those key French regions whose reputation for fine cuisine not only inspires our national culinary scene but also extends far beyond France's borders. Alsace has always produced some of the greatest talents in the restaurant and catering industry, and shines by the sheer abundance of its know-how, recipes and produce. The region's many assets and references make it the perfect and natural place to present our new selection of restaurants," said Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. "Furthermore, by choosing Strasbourg, one of Europe's main centers, to unite an entire profession, we are also hoping to highlight and celebrate the strength and universality of the values of hospitality, transmission and sharing, which nurtures the fine dining sector and is shared throughout the continent.
Frédéric Bierry, President of the Collectivité européenne d’Alsace, is delighted that Alsace has been chosen to host the MICHELIN Star Award Ceremony. "Thanks to the collective efforts of our region and our teams, I am proud and full of emotion to welcome the elite of Alsatian, French and European fine-dining sector.” He stressed that fine food is the beating heart of the whole region. “In Alsace, fine food is an integral part of the life of the inhabitants who blend the traditionally pleasures of food and conviviality at the table. In this context, the Collectivité européenne d’Alsace will host a year dedicated to Alsace cuisine in order to promote gourmet experiences that are in perfect harmony with new virtuous practices and to ensure that all Alsatians can enjoy high-quality, healthy and balanced food at affordable prices.”
“We know," adds Frédéric Bierry, "that the future has to be rooted in healthy local food, sourcing food and produce from local agriculture. Alsatian cuisine is more than ever at the core of future challenges, such as: health, education and transmission, tourism, ecology and the local economy. In addition to Alsace's excellent terroir, the know-how, authenticity and excellence of Alsatian cuisine undeniably contribute to the influence and attractiveness of the region, its players, companies and food products.”
