My name is Michael Wilshaw and I have been a professional chef for nearly two decades. At the end of the Mediterranean season, after a busy summer at sea, Helen at YPI CREW asked me if I was interested in going on a three-day course, or ‘formation’, at the Ducasse Education Training Centre near Paris. I jumped at the chance, booked myself a hotel, organised my flights and three weeks later I was honing my skills the Alain Ducasse way! This is a brief account of my experience there.
