"Perfection and stability.Thanks to these qualities, Japanese knives allow me to do a very precise job."

Michel Dussau a former student of Alain Ducasse, is now the Chef and owner of newly opened La Table d’Armandie in Southwest Agen, the French capital of prunes!

 

What does your knife mean to you?

It’s an indispensable tool. It’s the faithful companion of a chef ’s lifetime. I still have a knife that was given to me by my grandfather when I was 15. Knives are so important that they cannot be lent.They are like a 6th finger, or a 3rd hand.

 

What are the superior qualities of your Japanese knives?

Perfection and stability.Thanks to these qualities, Japanese knives allow me to do a very precise job.

 

What made you want to be a chef?

My mother was a wonderful cook. Every Sunday morning, I used to wake up with the delicious smell of her cooking.We used to have Sunday lunches that lasted all day. Many tasty dishes followed each other from noon to evening! I was raised in the country, with so many tasty products, the best school for a chef-to-be!
