EVICTION – “I didn’t expect it at all”. A few days after the announcement of his eviction from the show of “Top Chef”, on M6, chef Michel Sarran returned to this forced departure in an interview with Parisian.

“When I found out, it made me ache in the heart, confides the iconic juror. It was a bit violent. Why me ? What motivated their decision? What did I do wrong? I did not have any answer.

And to add: “Top chef was part of my life. It will create an abyssal void ”.

Michel Sarran assures the Parisian that he would have liked to continue and criticize the channel’s methods to tell him the news. “I learned that over a phone call,” he laments. As a business owner, I would not have done like that. It’s TV.

“Afterwards, they made a choice. We must keep the program alive and bring new things, he adds. I don’t see it as a failure either and am not depressed. I spent seven extraordinary years ”.

Glenn Viel “is a great cook”

But the cook may well return to the channel soon. “They told me that they would like me to stay at M6, that I was one of the pillars,” commented Michel Sarran. I was offered projects for shows around the kitchen to which I said no (…) Afterwards, I have desires on my side, things to offer them. ”.

In a press release sent to the press this Tuesday at the end of the day, the channel and the production company of the show would like to “sincerely thank chef Michel Sarran for his 7 seasons on the Top Chef jury”, welcoming “ his talent, his professionalism and his desire to pass on ”.

Chain has chosen Glenn Viel to replace Michel Sarran. The 41-year-old chef, originally from Versailles, had already appeared on the show three times during the previous season. Its restaurant, “L’Oustau de Baumanière”, located in Les Baux-de-Provence, has three stars in the Michelin guide.

“He’s a great cook (…) I wish him good luck,” commented Michel Sarran. I’m happy for him. After that, it will be up to the viewers to say whether he is a good recruit or not ”.
