Jean-François Piège: “When we participate in ‘The secret song‘, we are taken by the system”

I accepted because my wife said to me: Here, there is “The Secret Song”. Do you want to do it? She was the linchpin of this. And then my son Antoine liked it. When we participate in this program, we are not aware of anything. I didn’t know who was going to be there. I left the restaurant by taxi, after the service, at 10 p.m. I arrived at La Scène Musicale. I thought I could hear and recognize some laughter in the basement. Otherwise it’s a real conditioning, they raise the pressure. When you’re in the room alone, you don’t have a back set to see what’s going on for the other guests. And at some point we go to the interview alone. And we are taken by the system. But that’s what’s good.

“I must say a big thank you to this medium, television, for glorifying our profession”

It’s soon the return of “Chef” and of “Chef“, in a new formula, with professional pastry chefs. What is Jean-François Piège’s view of these programs? “I started with Top Chef 12 years ago, it was my first show. And I did it for 10 years. I started with a version of the show, which we built with values. Time passes, it evolves, it’s normal.

Me, I did my time, I think. In life you have to know when to stop. The show was top notch. Since I don’t watch TV, I don’t know what’s going on now. In any case, I must say a big thank you to this medium, television, for having glorified our profession. Before replacing the profession of cook as a service profession. Now it ennobles us a little bit more. That’s why I’m not going to hit the TV, quite the contrary. Me, I was an actor. At some point, you have to give way to others. Ten years is not bad, I have the record, it will fall, and so much the better“, replied Jean-François Piège.
