Michel Serran, one of the flagship jurors of the program "Top Chef", which resumes this Wednesday, February 19, is the guest of Matthieu Noël on Europe 1. On this occasion the chef cook confides in the program but also on the vagaries of life in the kitchen. The professional confirms: to exercise this profession, it is better to have a good physical condition.
"It's a physical job, we work quite substantial hours. It takes resistance, it's intense," he explains. If in large restaurants the chefs have "brigades" who can replace them if they are sick, "a chef alone has no choice but to close the door", underlines the juror of "Top Chef".
"I'm not a top athlete either"
If the physical condition of a chef must be good because of the pace of work, the one who ran the New York marathon in 2006, specifies that the level of requirement must be put into perspective: "I am not a high level sport either. " The one who returns to the screens this Wednesday in "Top Chef" specifies with humor: "I have a few fellow chefs, you just have to see them to understand that sport is not their main subject".
