MICHELIN Guide and China

米其林指南和中国

 

1926, the guide introduced the concept of awarding stars to restaurants.

Initially, restaurants could only receive one star, but five years later, the guide expanded the star classification to include one, two, and three stars, which is still in use today. Alongside this development, the MICHELIN Guide also established the role of the MICHELIN Guide inspector.

In 1997, the Bib Gourmand distinction was introduced to recognize restaurants offering high-quality cuisine at moderate prices. In 2020, the MICHELIN Green Star was introduced to highlight restaurants that excel in sustainable gastronomy within the guide’s selection.

Currently, the MICHELIN Guide recommends more than 16,500 restaurants across 45 international destinations, including China. The MICHELIN Guide team continues to provide insights and recommendations on the culinary scene.

 

《米其林指南》诞生于 1900 年,源于米其林公司创始人 的一个最初想法。当时,这本红色封面的书籍旨在帮助第一批法国车主,与他们分享出行所需的所有实用信息。

很快《米其林指南》开始专门推荐酒店和餐厅。1926 年,《米其林指南》开始推出星奖,当时一家餐厅只能获得一个星奖。

五年后《米其林指南》将米其林星级扩大到一星、二星和三星,这就是我们今天所熟知的米其林星级分类,与此同时,《米其林指南》创立了一项新的职业:米其林指南检查员。

米其林美食家(Bib Gourmand)指南于 1997 年推出,旨在奖励以适中的价格提供优质美食的餐厅。2020 年《米其林指南》推出了 «米其林绿色之星»,以表彰在可持续美食方面的典范餐厅。

如今《米其林指南》在全球 45 个目的地推荐16500 多家餐厅。这些推荐餐厅反映出《米其林指南》的国际化程度不断提高。

How many restaurants in China are listed?

The Michelin Guide features a selection of 492 restaurants in mainland China, comprising 5 three-star restaurants, 15 two-star restaurants, 102 one-star restaurants, 120 Bib Gourmand establishments, and 2 Green Stars.

 

What are the selection procedures?

There are 5 consistent selection criteria used by the MICHELIN Guide. The evaluation process is conducted anonymously by MICHELIN Guide inspectors, and their decisions are always made collectively, focusing solely on the quality of the dishes.

The 5 criteria of the MICHELIN Guide methodology are: quality of products, mastery of cooking, harmony of flavors, personality of the cuisine, and consistency over time and across the menu. These 5 criteria are consistent worldwide and remain unchanged from year to year. MICHELIN Guide inspectors utilize them as benchmarks to confirm the selection of an establishment or to distinguish it.

 

Will the Michelin Guide’s selection be extended to China?

MICHELIN Guide inspectors have complete independence in selecting the restaurants they visit. Their extensive knowledge of the local gastronomic scene, combined with thorough research, monitoring, and documentation, forms the basis for identifying the establishments they choose to visit. There is no predetermined list imposed on them. The selections are made on an annual basis and can be expanded if new establishments are identified that are likely to meet the criteria for inclusion in the guide.

 

How does a Chinese city fit into the Guide?

The process of introducing the MICHELIN Guide to a new destination is carried out collaboratively by the guide’s inspectors, taking into account the culinary landscape of the city or country. The inspection team evaluates whether the region’s culinary scene is sufficiently developed for the MICHELIN Guide to select restaurants and whether there is potential for growth in the culinary industry. If these criteria are met, the process of introducing the guide to the region can commence.

 

What is the Michelin Guide’s strategy in China for the coming years?

The MICHELIN Guide teams are closely monitoring the rapid development of various Chinese cities that are not currently covered by the Guide. This indicates the potential for these cities to be added to the MICHELIN Guide collection in the coming years.

Additionally, the MICHELIN Guide is investing in its local digital platforms and social networks to enhance the customer experience and provide Chinese customers with increasingly effective and user-friendly services.
