French chef Marc Veyrat

French chef Marc Veyrat - A court in Nanterre is due to decide on Tuesday whether Michelin food guide experts must justify their decision to strip French chef Marc Veyrat of his third Michelin star. Veyrat is suing the guide after it suggested he used English Cheddar in his souffle instead of French Reblochon and Beaufort, and later chose to take away his third star. He is demanding details on the criteria leading to such a decision, the evaluation methods used and the level of training Michelin inspectors receive. In response, Michelin is to countersue the chef for damages totaling €30,000.
