Tour of French cuisine through intimate biographies of 14 world-renowned French chefs, crowned with their 75 favorite recipes. Dinner with a top French chef is an impossible offer to refuse; the chance to follow one into his kitchen and marketplace, and to run away with his favorite recipes, is a food lover's dream. Great French Chefs invites the reader into the kitchens of these culinary masters for a firsthand tour that celebrates the unique gastronomic character of each region. The chefs range from the Michelin-star general to the unsung hero, and all have much to teach us about their passion for the products of their region, inspirations, and personal approach to cooking. Each chef also shares the secrets of their favorite recipes, printed in their original, unedited form, to enable readers to recreate, at home, the very best of French gastronomy. With mouth-watering portraits of the featured recipes, candid photographs of the chefs at work, and an engaging text, this book offers an intimate insight into these great chefs and their inspired philosophies.
Through their stories, we savor the diverse regional flavors and passionate creativity that make French cooking the ultimate culinary benchmark.
