|Michelin Award La Trompette One Star|
Devonshire Road restaurant receives much anticipated accolade
The highly regarded Chiswick restaurant joined Rhodes W1, Quilon, Hibiscus and Wild Honey as the newly starred establishments of the food industry’s bible.
However, no restaurants were promoted to two or three stars by Michelin and others lost their star altogether.
“We're not going to create awards just to gain publicity,'' said Derek Bulmer, editor of the guide, “We didn't find anywhere that deserved to gain a second or third star this year.”
Michelin state that stars are awarded solely on the basis of the food on the plate. Quality of the ingredients; the skill of the preparation; the harmony of the flavors; the creativity of the chef; consistency; and value for money are all taken into account.
According to food industry publication Caterer:
One-Michelin-star: A very good restaurant or pub in its category
Two-Michelin-star: Excellent cooking, worth a detour
Three-Michelin-star: Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey
Gordon Ramsay on Royal Hospital Road remains London’s only restaurant with Michelin’s top accolade.
