World's Top French Chef
Now & Then
I must admit, one of my favorite features on Jake's Rolex World is Now & Then, whereby I feature a vintage Rolex ad, and they do a write-up on where the person is today, and highlight their continued life achievements!!!
Paul Bocuse is a French Chef born in 1926 and his is considered to be on of the top chef's in history. He also pioneered "Nouvelle Cuisine" which is lower in calories and less opulent that traditional "Cuisine Classique." Nouvelle Cuisine emphasizes the highest quality fresh ingredients.
Paul Bocuse is featured below in this 1976 Rolex advertisement for the Rolex Day-Date.
Paul Bucouse is picture below 34 years later, and he still looks almost exactly the same, as does his Rolex in the following photo. It is true that everything considered classic was once considered modern ;-D
