This weekend, a few friends wanted to explore a list of the MOF's - specifically patissiers and chocolatiers. So we wandered all over town, trying different things. My friends were puzzled, because they expected that an MOF would do everything exceedingly well - which was not the case.
I explained that someone could be an MOF in caramel, but that didn't mean that he would necessarily excel in macarons, for example. And so forth.
Nobody was happy with this explanation - the consensus was that an MOF should be held to a higher standard, and that all products should be excellent, period.
Anybody have any thoughts about MOF status? Does it really mean anything, or is it more along the lines of the "meilleure baguette" - where the winner gets the contract to supply the President for a year...
Anyone know an MOF who really is good at everything?
