Top Chef France judge, Michel Sar­ran

Michel Sar­ran’s mother, Pier­rette, was a cook and the owner of l’auberge du Berg­er­ayre in Saint Martin d’ar­magnac in the South of France, where Michel also was born. Chef Sar­ran ini­tially planned to be­come a doc­tor when he stud­ied medicine, but it took him less than two years to dis­cover that his true pas­sion was gas­tron­omy. He started to work for some of the fore­most chefs of France, like Alain Du­casse, Michel Guérard and Jean-michel Lo­rain. Young Sar­ran even­tu­ally made a name for him­self when he was ap­pointed head chef at Rési­dence la Pinède in Saint-tropez in 1989. He opened his epony­mous restau­rant in Toulouse in 1995, which quickly be­came a suc­cess. He re­ceived his first Miche­lin star in 1996 and a se­cond in 2003.
