Patents by Famous Chefs

Somehow I doubt this is what earned him his Stars! And, if you order this at L'Arpege, don't expect these little apple rosebuds to have been made by his fair hands ‐ he also invented a machine for making these little delights.

40‐80% (weight) extra virgin olive oil
Martin's next big thing: Stamppot on the menu.
Jamie Oliver invented something ‐ not a Pasta or Welsh Rarebit, but a CRUSHER BLENDER including:

Michel was granted patent FR2953685 for a pasta cone making machine including:
Does no‐one make waffles in France?
But, hold on to your pasta‐cone. Michel's earlier patented method of making a stuffed biscuit takes the cake:
Ice creams cones also not that big in France? Enough singing for breakfast, lunch and supper 7 days a week!
