He has been to China several times over the past few years, participating in such events as the Beijing International Culinary Competition.

He believes there are similarities in the ways French and Chinese chefs learn, and he appreciates the respect Chinese people afford chefs. He also highlights how Chinese food tries to waste as little as possible, using every part of an animal, noting this is similar to the French approach.

Rouquet has more projects coming up in China.

He's currently working on a TV show with McIntosh and Chinese chef Simon Liu.

The show-titled Entente Cordiale in reference to the agreements that improved British-French relations in the early 20th century after almost a millennium of rivalry-will pit French and British chefs against one another as they compete to give their best interpretations of local recipes.

The show, meant to be educational as well as entertaining, won Best Food Script at the World Gourmand Awards held in Yantai, Shandong province, earlier this year.

Rouquet strives to introduce French food to Chinese people in a way that highlights its lighthearted and uncomplicated side.
