TALK TO THE CHEF: Ann-Sophie Pic Words: Namai Bishop 10 20

3 times a Lady An exclusive interview with three Michelin starred Anne-Sophie Pic at La Dame de Pic London The Lady Refined, creative, elegant and emotive are words that can best describe the dishes served before me at La Dame Pic restaurant, but equally could be used to describe the lady herself, sat across the table from me. Quite the Dame she surely is, as recognised by the unfathomable number of accolades showered upon this First Lady of cookery: Laureate of the Omnivore Creator Prize 2018; Officer of Arts and Letters 2017; World’s Best Female Chef 2011 Veuve Clicquot Prize – 50 Best Restaurants Awards; Knight of the National Order of Honor Legion 2011; Doctor honoris causa, Montreal University 2008; Knight of the National Order of Merit 2008; Femme en or in the category Art 2008; 18,5/20 Gault & Millau Guide and 4 toques 2007; Chef of the Year 2007 Magazine Le Chef; Chef of the Year, Guide Champérard 2007; Woman of the year Louise Pommery Trophy, Relais & Châteaux 2007 and rather endearingly National Godmother of Gastronomy Festival 2015! These are just some of the awards bestowed upon her. 21 11
