I watched the French version of Les Chefs and noticed a few things wrong

There is an old biblical saying that you should not do to others what you would not like to do to yourself.

That’s why I decided to do the exact opposite: I watched the French show top chef With the intention of emphasizing in bold all the subtleties that make it a typical French program from France.

In the context of:

A French columnist makes fun of the Quebec version of Les Chefs and suddenly it makes people react

First of all I wanted to do it right by going to the M6 ​​broadcast platform, where I created an account to finally be told that the show I wanted to see was not available in my country.


not dangerous! I went to another site whose name starts with a Y (no, not YouPorn) and easily found what I was looking for.


So I started watching the last episode of top chefThis is the semi-finals of the current season.

First, the first note, it takes two hours. Calvins, that’s long! Very French.

From the first 30 seconds of the show, the phrases “C’est che-lou!” and “phew stuff!” have already heard. Sets the tone…

In the next 60 seconds, each repeats once.

Then I noticed that the French chefs have a big table in the shape of a triangle that reminds me a lot squid gamebut since it’s not a text about the differences between South Korea and France, we’ll put that aside.

When candidate Arnault announced that he wanted to propose a challenge that remembered his Belgian origins, his colleague Louise announced: “Arnault talks about Belgian gastronomy. There will definitely be french fries. And then, I don’t know, it could be Flemish Carboniferous, and it could be…From what I know, there’s not a billion things in Belgian gastronomy.” Not only stubborn prejudices toward Quebecers!

Then what happens is, well, the culinary competition as we know it. The chefs bring the foods they need and rush to do their work before the time is up.

Their studio looks really gigantic. Looks like he was shot in a hangar.

As for the music, we definitely called the same composer who specializes in impulse music as in the Quebec version. I really feel that the fate of my life depends on the seasoning of Sebastian’s tuna filling.

Big difference: In the French version, the contestants have “coaches” who follow them everywhere and give them advice. I’m not very sure about its usefulness, and frankly, instead of aspiring chefs, it wouldn’t take long for them to be told to “get my leg out!”

You don’t have to be chauvinistic, but I prefer the Quebec approach where there are famous chefs bitches in their corner without interference.

After 43 minutes, it’s time to take a nap, because that’s the normal length of the loop heads.

I woke up just in time to see, at 1:01:00, that Louise had put her finger on Sebastian’s recipe. Astronomy!

After Arnault won the challenge and Louise did the same with her challenge, it was Sebastian’s turn to take charge and come up with a recipe.

He asked his opponents to do the royal rabbit.

“Hare à la royale is a dish emblematic of French cuisine. The narrator explained in the traditional recipe that it was a boneless rabbit, drenched in red wine, fixed in a medallion with a filling of offal and foie gras, and topped with a sauce of blood.”

It really bothered me, but I haven’t seen anything yet.

Here are some snapshots of the massacre that awaited me…

In short, in the end, as with us, some win, some lose, people scream, people laugh, the music is so intense, but personally, I got stuck in the game and in the end, I no longer felt like I was watching a French programme.

I was watching a show, period.

So I enjoyed.
