who are the top 100 best chef in the world is there a list and have i heard of them and how does the star chefs in the u.s.rate in the world of cooking

 

I love your commentary on the amuse-bouche and your description of it as a "bite sized miracle". I have lasting memories of amuse bouches that I've enjoyed at restaurants and for some reason they stand out more to me in my memory than some of the courses themselves. I don't know if this is on account of the presentation, the pleasant surprise of something unexpected, or the actual creativity. Whatever the reason, they definitely transform a good dining experience into a great one for me!
