Michel BRAS No.1 and No.4 featured at home in Juliette Binoche's Parisian Kitchen on the Wall Street Journal

On February 8, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL published an article about a visit to Juliette Binoche's home, written by journalist Kitty Greenwald. The article was in response to the popularity of “The Taste of Things”(original title: “La Passion de Dodin Bouffant”), which is now in theaters worldwide. Starring Juliette Binoche in the lead role, the essence of cuisine is the theme of this remarkable film that is a natural for today's era of gastronomy. Set in the Belle Epoque era at the end of the 19th century, the film tells the story of Dodin, the “Napoléon” of the culinary world, and a gourmand who elevated food to an art form, and Eugénie, the cook in charge of perfecting the recipes he creates. It also tells of the French and European society that have clearly entered a new era of cuisine. Director Tran Anh Hung asked chef Pierre Gagnaire, Michel Bras' esteemed ally, to supervise all the cooking. And the chef is also starring in the movie.

As a great cooking enthusiast, sensitive to the times, Juliette Binoche is perfectly cast as Eugénie. Her performance is surely one of the major contributors to the film's success at the Cannes Film Festival, the Academy Awards among others.

And it turns out that Juliette Binoche is an actual fan of Michel BRAS knives. The article features beautiful photos and shows carefully used kitchenware along with ingredients. Michel BRAS knives No. 1 and No. 4 look very much at home in Juliette Binoche's Parisian kitchen.

This remarkable article is much more than about an actress home visit, and also includes the French actress’s original recipes. Reading this article, watching "The Taste of things", and enjoying the great actress's performance, you will surely discover a new taste sensation.
