Auguste Escoffier 1846-1935 Further codified cuisine by adding a 5 th mother sauce. Created the kitchen brigade and brought discipline to the kitchen environment. Along with Cesar Ritz in the 1890s started the Grand Hotel era. Wrote the Guide Culinaire in 1903 which is the basis of classic French Cuisine used to this day

Michelin Guide The Michelin Guide was created in 1900 as a way to increase tire sales. Originally it covers only hotels. Eventually in 1933 it begins to cover restaurants. They create the unequivocal standards for luxury through their star system

Fernand Point Quotes "When one thinks of la grande cuisine one cannot think of money; the two are incompatible. La grande cuisine is extremely expensive-but that does not mean one cannot do very good cooking with inexpensive ingredients." "Every morning the cuisinier must start again at zero, with nothing on the stove. That is what real cuisine is all about." "In all professions without doubt, but certainly in cooking one is a student all his life." "Success is the sum of a lot of small things done correctly."
