In the culinary world, one of the most prestigious recognition any restaurateur strives toward is getting one of the famed Michelin stars. They try to perfect not just the food that they serve but also the quality of the service itself from the moment a guest arrives at the table until they leave the restaurant. It is a matter of pride.
But the Michelin stars weren’t originally intended to become the culinary pedestal that it is today. Andre and Edouard Michelin simply wanted to give their customers a little extra as they toured around France. – via The BBC
