The Michelin Guide was born in France in 1900. It was a small guide that the brothers Édouard and André Michelin, the founders of Michelin, had wanted to help the few thousand French motorists struggling with a journey that, at the time, was often adventurous. It contained practical information (where to refuel, where to find a workshop, where to change tires) and directions on where to eat and sleep. In Italy, the first Michelin Guide dates back to 1956. It was therefore born as an aid for travelers, like any Michelin product (tires, maps and guides), and continues to be so.
The rigorous selection criteria, applied homogeneously in 30 countries, make it a reference in the field of catering. Inspectors operate anonymously following a consolidated methodology all over the world and pay the bill at the restaurant, evaluating only the quality of the cuisine based on five criteria defined by Michelin: quality of products, taste and skill in the preparation of dishes and in the combination of flavors, cuisine revealing the personality of the chef, quality / price ratio and continuity over time and in the menu. These criteria are met by Michelin inspectors in Italy, as in Japan or in China and the United States. It follows that theThe quality of a three-star restaurant is the same in Florence and New York, just as the quality of a one-star restaurant in Naples and London must be comparable.
