- Story Text: French chef Marc Veyrat on Tuesday (September 24) said he was suing the famous Michelin guide after he lost one of his three Michelin stars in January, claiming inspectors were accusing him of using English cheddar in his souffle instead of a traditional French cheese.
Veyrat told France Info in an interview that he would like to know the exact reasons behind the downgrading of his restaurant La Maison des Bois, in Manigod in the French Alps, adding that the loss of the star led him into a depression.
He said he had no advanced warning of the move and felt it was unjustified.
Veyrat, 69, had been awarded three stars, the highest award in the Michelin guide, in 2018.
