Thierry Laurent, chef at Paul Bert for 14 years, is proud to cook each dish in the purest French tradition. Waiting for boeuf bourguignon in a charming French bistro, it’s hard to imagine that the chef’s main job could be to press buttons on the microwave. But frozen and pre-packaged meals have become so common in restaurants that lawmakers want customers to know what they’re getting.
