Unknown Facts About The Famous Michelin Star Rank

First Female 3-Star Michelin Chef

#2 First Female 3-Star Michelin Chef

The Michelin Star Guide started publishing dining reviews in 1926 with a single-star rating system. The modern three-star rating system began in 1931, but three stars weren’t awarded until the 1933 guide.

In the 1933 edition, two female chefs won three Michelin Stars for their restaurants.

These female chefs were Marie Bourgeois and Eugenie Brazier. Eugenie Brazier held the record for the most Michelin stars (6 stars) for twenty years until Alain Ducasse beat it in 1998.

Then she was the only female chef with the most Michelin Stars until Carme Ruscalleda received her seventh start.
