Remembering Jean-Louis Palladin

February 18th, 2014

Eric Ripert, Michel Richard, Ariane Daguin, and Drew Nieporent share memories and lessons from the prurient Palladin in this video, Remembering Jean-Louis Palladin.

"The first impression of Jean-Louis, he was more like a Rolling Stone than like a chef!" notes Michel Richard, friend of Jean-Louis Palladin. "I was trying to be better than Jean-Louis, but it's impossible! Maybe one day I will be better than him, but not yet. Not yet!"

"I think the biggest lesson Jean-Louis imparted in people like myself was that you have to hold yourself to a very high standard, and you have to maintain that standard. And then you even have to surpass that standard," recalls Drew Nieporent.
