New York-based Vongerichten is lauded for reinventing French cuisine. His dishes use plenty of Asian herbs and flavours and lots of fresh vegetables, and, unlike traditional French cooking, are less heavy. He has been in the business for 43 years and there are now 35 restaurants around the world serving his creations.
