This from chef Rick Stein’s Secret France.
In passing Stein remarks that in France, rather than asking “What do you do?”, people ask “What’s your métier?”—literally, what are you master of?
We should all aspire to be masters of our chosen profession.
I’m pretty sure it was episode 2: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000b8sb .
The book’s here, but I suspect, it won’t help. Great recipes, though.
