Mr. Ducasse – sorry I simply cannot call this man Alain! I was taught to respect my elders and wisers and this man is certainly in that category.
Anyway, in this book, Mr Ducasse returns to the basics of French cooking without the fuss. I know you’ve heard that before and seen many chefs do this. However what this book also does is French cuisine without the FAT! There are nearly 200 recipes which are simple to make and giv pride of place to vegetables, fruit and cereal grains as well as the standard chapters on fish, meat and poultry.
I made his Rhubarb Tart….
…his Pumpkin Seed Condiment….
…and a variation of his hummus recipe.
You can read my full review and make your own mind up about this man’s greatness but if like me, you’re ready for that lovely Spring and Summer food, go get this book!
