What is a mentor? It is “A trusted counselor or guide”, expounds Webster. The Oxford English dictionary defines a mentor as “an experienced and trusted advisor.” In the Greek adventure tale of “The Odyssey”, Homer’s Mentor was a wise and trusted figure who helped to nurture, teach, and protect Odysseus’s son Telemachus. Many scholars claim this to be the first written example of the modern usage of the word “mentor”. However, a book entitled “Les Adventures de Telemaque” written in 1799 by French author Francois de Salignac de La Mothe-Fenelon is widely recognized to be the first instance in which the term “mentoring” was bestowed with its modern educational meaning. The support, nurturing and guidance of Fenelon’s “Mentor”, which in many ways was a continuation of the Odyssey, has been given credit for the word “mentor” being officially added to the English language back in 1750. The mini-revelation that the word “mentor” had its origins in France would certainly not surprise a Frenchman such as Daniel Boulud. Most world-renowned French chefs, who have spent many years on both sides of the mentoring spectrum both as an apprentice and as a nurturer of young talent, have always felt that their system of mentoring is their own, brought here from their homeland and molded to fit the American work ethic.
