Gordon Ramsay has slammed legendary chef Michel Roux Sr, after the latter implemented a ban on photographing food in his three Michelin star restaurant, The Waterside Inn.
Roux announced earlier this week that he would no longer permit diners to photograph their food at the restaurant in Bray, now presided over by his son Alain. “I’m really getting so upset about people taking pictures. We put up a card at the door - ‘No photos, please,’” he told the Daily Mail. “What are they doing? Maybe once during the meal you want to take a little photo of something because it’s unusual. But what about the flavours? A picture on a phone cannot possibly capture the flavours.”
