Aboard Germany’s trains of the future

Despite being one of the most popular forms of transportation in many countries, travelling by train can often feel like stepping into a time capsule. Hoping to update train cars for the 21st century, German railway company Deutsche Bahn has developed a concept for so-called ‘digital’ train cars that come jam-packed with relaxing and entertaining features to keep riders amused throughout their journey. The digital train cars feature TVs, game consoles, a gym and play area for children.

Michel Troisgros is the best chef in the world according to the Le Chef list.

The Le Chef list is compiled by asking two and three-starred Michelin chefs to provide a list of five names they think best represent the cooking profession, and one name they would like to see at the top of the list. Previous lists have come under criticism for being largely biased in favour of French cuisine and French chefs. Check out the top 10 below and read the article at Fine Dining Lover, and make up your own opinion.
