I finally got to speak to Chef Alain Ducasse!

After literal years of wistful wishing, I enjoyed the privilege of a tête-à-tête with this living legend during his recent visit to Manila. He turned out to be approachable, engaging, and very inquisitive, asking me how my experience was, as a stagiaire (or intern) at his Restaurant Le Meurice in Paris, and teasing me about only being able to understand and not speak French, after living in Paris for so long.
