Auguste Escoffier: a social vision
Auguste Escoffier has acquired worldwide notoriety for having codified and modernized French cuisine, giving it international influence. He rationalized the tasks in the kitchen and worked constantly to improve working conditions there.
Beyond this image of the "king of cooks, cook of kings" Auguste Escoffier was a humanist and a pioneer, as evidenced by his many initiatives in the fields of transmission and learning, mutual insurance and foresight, the fight against pauperism.
It is this man of heart, whose life has gone through two wars in the midst of the industrial revolution that Fabrice Roy invites you to discover.
