Pickled porcini mushrooms wrapped in lentil pastry

We look at the top chef for 2016 according to "Chef" magazine's survey of 528 two and three-star Michelin chefs worldwide. The winner is... Michel Bras from the Aveyron region of south-west France. His restaurant Le Suquet has a seasonal menu that changes each day. Also on the menu for this press review: coverage of Wednesday's Paris gathering of US-led coalition representatives fighting the IS group, a possible cabinet reshuffle here in France and the minister who travelled the most in 2015.
