Author(s): Alain Ducasse
This glorious outsized full-colour format is now available in this affordably priced edition. "Ducasse Flavors of France" follows the chef from his state-of-the-art kitchens at the Louis XV in Monte Carlo to his eponymous restaurant in Paris and his countryside auberge in Moustiers. In lavishly photographed recipes, the book shows the influences - Mediterranean, Provencal and the classic French of the capital - that permeate his cuisine.
Alain Ducasse is the greatest chef of his generation. Brash, driven and dazzlingly inventive, he is a larger-than-life figure. At 33, he was the youngest chef ever to be awarded three Michelin stars. In March 1998, he became the first chef in over sixty years to earn three stars in two restaurants simultaneously. As of this year, when Michelin gave his New York restaurant three stars, he became the only chef to have nine stars to his name.
