Michelin-starred French chef Marc Veyrat, chosen to cook for world leaders at the U.N. climate talks in Paris, was on Friday served a 100,000-euro fine for destroying the forest around his Alpine restaurant.Veyrat, who has received six Michelin stars in his career, was one of five top chefs at the COP21 meeting this month where leaders from across the globe sealed a deal to fight climate change.Veyrat was however found not guilty of a separate charge of contravening town planning laws."That allows Mr. Veyrat to keep his educational park for children with the botanical garden, greenhouses and apiary," said the chef's lawyer Nicolas Ballaloud.He attributed the "heavy" fine to Veyrat's "fame".
