5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.
Jean Joho knows a thing or deux about French food.
For one, he is French (that generally helps).
And two, Chef Jean Joho began his formal chef training as an apprentice at the acclaimed L'Auberge de L'Ill in Alsace, France - when he was THIRTEEN.
Unsurprisingly so, he's become a well-adorned chef in his own right - currently overseeing Eiffel Tower in Vegas, Brasserie Jo in Boston, as well as Everest and the Paris Club in Chicago.
"There are so many great dishes from France. It is really impossible to narrow it down to just 5, though I have tried my best," says Joho.
"If this list were to be renamed '10@10,' I would also include the French croissant, coq au vin, French macarons and French wine - because in France, nothing is served without it."
