I know that lots of famous chefs in France have lines of merchandise, books, etc. But I was wondering if there are any "celebrity" French chefs with cooking shows on French TV. I know that even in the US--TV central--most of the really "elite" chefs don't do TV shows, but there are certainly chefs who got shows on the strength of a preexisting reputation (as opposed to becoming famous along with their show) and I am curious if this phenomenon also exists in France, not just the US and UK. (hope that doesn't sound too muddled.)
Just seemed curious to me that I had never heard of a *French* chef with a cooking show! I'd be interested in finding out more about any such chefs, if you could point me in the right direction...
thank you very much for your help! :)
