Antoine Careme:
Auguste Escoffier created over 5,000 recipes and even published Le Guide Culinaire which was a culinary textbook, he also developed approaches to kitchen management. Escoffier invented the Peach Melba in honor of Austrian singer Nellie Melba, and in addition to inventing the way of ‘a la carte’ eating, Escoffier also revolutionized the way restaurant kitchens ran, inventing the “brigade” system of organization, which is still used today.

Escoffier worked with many different hotels but the most famous collaboration he had was with Cesar Ritz within the Ritz hotel where he presided over the kitchens for almost twenty years, in which he then received world wide recognition for his “haute cuisine”.
