What does a 130 year old French tyre company and fine dining restaurants have in common? Plenty, surprisingly! The Michelin Guide has been synonymous with quality food since its inception in 1900. The namesake tyre company, started publishing these restaurant guides initially as a very clever marketing ploy to create demand for cars (and tyres of course). Essentially, encouraging people to go out and explore different places now made accessible by the newly introduced automobiles.
Today, the Michelin guide is a revered and highly coveted standard of dining excellence. Their rating stars adorn the walls of restaurants all over the world from Singapore to Croatia. Michelin restaurants reviewers are sent to restaurants to anonymously rate the quality of their food and review the entire dining experience.
In this creative printable, we explore the art of food and restaurant reviews!
