It's an insult to Michelin and a mark against those who claim that stars impose fiscal and creative burdens on an eatery, the British celebrity chef said Tuesday. Ramsay said a chef's failure to parlay the hard-won recognition into greater success is on them.
It pains him to see the accolade denounced because someone is "tired and bored" by it, Ramsay said. The stars are a useful consumer guide, he said. Ramsay said he prizes the three Michelin stars, the top ranking, long held by his self-named London restaurant.
