“Nightmare in the kitchen”: with Philippe Etchebest, restaurateurs from Plougonver experienced an “emotional lift” – Guingamp

We had to adapt to the theatrical side of the shoot and the repetition of the gestures. “It’s still funny and interesting to do”, relativizes the boss of Kerado. He remembers the “emotional lift” when he met Michelin-starred chef Philippe Etchebest, without being able to say more.

The broadcast date is not yet known, but the restaurant couple hope to have a positive impact as early as September. “We will play all our marbles on that,” says Vincent Knecht.
