From the Publisher:
Pierre Gagnaire is one of France's most creative chefs, revered for pushing the boundaries of taste and texture. He runs a dozen restaurants around the world, including his eponymous three Michelin-starred temple of gastronomy in Paris, Sketch in London, and Twist at the Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas. And while he has published several books on food-related subjects, this is his first book of recipes written for the home chef.
Organized into four chapters covering mealtimes and entertaining, Gagnaire offers 175 classic yet refined recipes designed for the casual cook with simple steps and clear instructions. Gagnaire transforms old favorites by adding a twist of originality via unique flavor combinations or the addition of an unexpected ingredient. Breakfast includes French Toast and Lemon-Rhubarb Marmalade and drinks such as Orange-Cardamom Coffee and Sparkling Melon-Strawberry juice. Lunch options include Shitaki-Gorgonzala Ciabatta or Zucchini Pesto, and dinner ranges from Lamb with Potatoes and Prunes or Grilled Line-Caught Bass. Desserts feature Chocolate Tart or Raspberries with Parmesan, and his cocktail party ideas include recipes for drinks and snacks, including Bell Pepper Cocktail or Pear with Roquefort and Walnuts on Endive Leaves. Gagnaire's sense of humor shows through in recipes such as Andy's Tomato Soup, honoring the legendary artist, and his famous onion soup--the most decadent recipe in the book that calls for a full bottle of champagne: the majority goes into the soup, but a few glasses are to be consumed while cooking. The photographs bring into focus the raw elements of the recipes, with artistic close-ups of primary ingredients.
This book brings the creativity of a master chef into the home kitchen and will expand the repertoire of the budding cook--novice or accomplished--offering a fresh and new home dining experience.
