Chefs in France have spoken out about the increasing number of diners who disrupt their restaurants by taking endless photos of their food.
Now a group of leading restaurateurs is campaigning to end the culture of “food porn” and ban smartphone photos in their restaurants, business and technology news website Business Insider reported.
A chef said that his customers had sometimes set off a series of flashes, repositioned their tables, taken each photo several times, then posted it on social media while leaving the dishes to go cold.
“It takes away a little bit of my intellectual property too. Someone could copy me,” said Gilles Goujon, a chef at three Michelin-star restaurant L’Auberge du Vieux Puits.
Chefs said they want to encourage people to relax with one voice.
