    The 'chef business' is insanely competitive and arguments about who is the "best" are so hopelessly subjective that conversations regarding such are ultimately futile if a resolution or even a consensus is sought by the participants.
     
    That said, Joel Robuchon did lead the world in Michelin Stars - and by a wide margin. 
     
    To those who would sniff at that achievement saying that he was "just a good businessmen" (and worse) I would cite his singular achievement to his being both a master of his craft and a great teacher. 
     
    That is an exceedingly rare combination; therefore, I believe he had a valid claim to have been the Chef of his generation.  Happily, his students carry on.
     
    R.I.P., Joel.
