Cesar Ritz owned and managed his very own top of the line hotels in Paris, Switzerland, England and many more. Paul escoffier was a culinary expert inventing over 5000 dishes. Antoine Careme was the worlds first celebrity chef and I think Cesar Ritz is the most influential person because creating and managing big hotels is a lot more impressive.September 6, 2021 at 11:29 am #27839

Cesar Ritz has a very long known history in the hotel business and has a history for managing and founding hotels but he is most famous for his hotel ritz in London which opened in the early 1900s. He was one of the first people to use specialize in hospitality and in having focusing on the hygiene in the hotel business.

Antoine Carême was known to the first celebrity chef and the first celebrity chef to server for the royals. But shes best known for the her her advanced the notion of cuisine as both and art and science view.
I think that Ritz has a bigger influence on how hospitality works and how hotels should be run. Without him we would never have the type of service at restaurants and hotels like we do today.September 6, 2021 at 12:18 pm #27846Joanna Gärdin

He was a man of hospitality and has become one of the most famous people to study when learning about this topic, hospitality.
Auguste Escoffier was a famous and highly respected, successful french chef that joined in with Cesar Ritz somewhere between 1877-1887 where they started the Baden Baden. Escoffier was the head chef at the hotels such as Savoy and the Carlton. He invented two major things, a la carte eating and the “brigade” system in how to run a kitchen efficiently, and this system is still used today.
Marie- Antonine Carême was a French chef who served the royalties in Europe, and has written several classic works on cuisine. He is often referred to as the founder of french gastronomy and front of the “grande cuisine”. He is also what we can say one of the first celebrity chefs as he worked in Napoleon’s kitchen and many other kings and royalties, Alexander the 1st among them.
I think Cesar Ritz is the most influential as he was the front face of hospitality in general and not only in the kitchen.September 7, 2021 at 12:51 am #27851

Caesar Ritz was born on the 23rd February 1850 in Niederwald in the Goms valley. He was the 13th and youngest child of Anton and Kreszentia Ritz-Heinen, a Goms mountain farmer’s son like all the others, however he was a very special boy. For a long time Caesar Ritz fostered the dream of implementing his ideas and visions on his own prototype in Paris.

Escoffier invented the Peach Melba in honor of Austrian singer Nellie Melba, and in addition to inventing the way of ‘a la carte’ eating, Escoffier also revolutionized the way restaurant kitchens ran, inventing the “brigade” system of organization, which is still used today.

Careme was a French chef and an early practitioner and exponent of the elaborate style of cooking known as grande cuisine, the “high art” of French cooking: a grandiose style of cookery favored by both international royalty and by the nouveau riche of Paris. Antoine was born into a poor family on June 8, in Paris, 1784. By the age of 10 he was out on his own, and Carême signed on for a six-year internship at a small tavern on the edge of Paris called the Fricassée de Lapin; he started as a dishwasher and runner. At 16, Carême was onto his next job, this time at a noteworthy pâtisserie near the Palais-Royal owned by Sylvain Bailly, a famous pâtissier at the time. It was at Bailly’s shop that Carême blossomed. Bailly recognized the young boy’s talent and encouraged him to get a more formal education.
In 1815, Carême left Paris to work in London as head chef for George, Prince of Wales. He left the country just three years later, but while in England, he wrote his first book, Le pâtissier royal, a 482-page manual and treatise split into two volumes comprising sweet and savory recipes, complete with rough line drawings for the more elaborate dishes.September 13, 2021 at 11:02 am #28029
