dishwasher to Michelin-starred chefWhen Lebanese chef Alan Geaam first arrived in Paris two decades ago he found himself sleeping on the streets, lost and penniless with hardly a word of French. Last week Geaam, who began his career as a dishwasher while he was sleeping rough in a Paris park, received his first Michelin star from the French gastronomic bible for his acclaimed new restaurant within a stone's throw of the Arc de Triomphe.By then Geaam's fascination with food was clear; he watched cookery shows on television rather than cartoons after school.Geaam never thought he would be able to cut the mustard in France, and only got his break when the chef of the restaurant where he was washing the dishes was rushed to hospital when he slashed his hand with a knife.Since Geaam got his Michelin star his restaurant's phone has not stopped ringing.
