This book is magic. It’s basically the best of French cooking. So just let me say it right now: this is not easy cooking. It’s actually really hard, and some of the ingredients are just impossible to find, especially if you’re based in the US. But this will tell you what French cooking is.
Ducasse is one of the top French chef. And even if the “American” craziness has led him to create tons and tons of franchise in the US (Vegas, New York etc…), the guy has spent most of his time with a few restaurants and working really hard to win his michelin stars.
His book is a big thank you to the food. His passion for taste, great combination and simplicity is all there.
Again, if you’re just starting cooking, go away from it. But if you’re adventurous, this could be for you an eye opener! (It’s here on amazon! And no i don’t take commission).
