014-EN - Interview with Daniel Galmiche
Daniel is an amazing multiple-Michelin-starred chef, with a very diverse international career. His awards and accolades speak for themselves , and just to give you a few examples: he was awarded the 2011 rising chef trophy for Relais et Chateau Worldwide, Restaurant of the Year 2012/2013 by Decanter magazine, and has holds position 82 on the list of the top 100 best restaurants in the UK by Restaurant magazine etc.
With regular appearances on various TV shows, I was delighted and couldn't believe that Daniel accepted an interview for my podcast!
He is very kind, approachable, humble and determined to educate people through food. You can find Daniel on instagram (@galmiche.daniel); on his website (danielgalmiche.co.uk) or on his YouTube channel.
We talked about various subjects: from what he misses from France and what he loves in the UK and especially in Scotland; sustainability and ways to be more eco at home; his books; the concept of having a Michelin star dinner at your own house (not during the pandemic of course); his "accents" in the way he cooks; his favorite dish cooked by his lovely wife; the importance of walking in nature, sitting down for a meal and enjoying the moment and many other important messages for you.
Talking about his books, Daniel wrote 2 cook books: French Brasserie (and Daniel so kindly gifted us a signed copy, it's absolutely superbe!) and Revolutionary French Cooking (find out in this episode why Daniel didn't publish it in French).
He has written a 3rd book as well, it is not released just yet (available from 13th April, you can see the cover on this link with a gorgeous illustration on the cover).
Daniel is just a joy to talk to and his knowledge and love for food is just immeasurable.
I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did. After I had the call with Daniel, I was just happy for the rest of the day, such an inspirational chat :)
