In the form of a starter-main course-dessert menu, Michaël Braure answers questions about his experience as a restaurateur, and reacts to gameplay images from the game. From the decoration of the room to the choice of recipes offered in the establishment, including the selection of suppliers and the setting of the plates, the Chef gives his expert opinion and details his know-how in the creation of his dishes. With the joystick in hand, he finally tries to reproduce in game the recipe for duck with orange that he also cooks in real life, allowing the viewer to compare virtual and real life, while listening to the Chef's advice for any amateur cook who would like to start a career in the restaurant business.
