Editorial Reviews

"Just when you think you know everything about one of your closest friends, he surprises you with anecdotes, reflections and insight. French cuisine is in Daniel's blood, but this book---the most personal he has written---goes well beyond the traditional rules and codes of French cooking. It's an intimate look at Daniel as a chef, and a vivid portrait of Daniel as a person, highlighting the art and science in his iconic and regional cooking, and the humility that guides everything he does." --Thomas Keller, Chef/Owner of The French Laundry"Daniel: My French Cuisine is a beautiful homage to not only French cooking, but also to its culture. Mastering techniques, and ultimately creating harmony, is what Daniel accomplishes brilliantly in this stunning book. I'm inspired by the exquisite photography and also by the riveting essays by Bill Buford that highlight the talent, curiosity, sense of hospitality and the legendary generosity of Daniel." --Eric Ripert, Chef/Co-Owner, Le Bernardin"Reading Daniel: My French Cuisine, I experienced a very Proustian emotion; I was back at age 13 in my mother's kitchen restaurant in Lyon. From Daniel's remembrance of Chefs Nandron and Bocuse to the Lyon market and his coming to America, I was young again, cooking in France and New York. Thoroughly grounded in classical training, passionate and talented, Daniel has created an exciting, personal, and innovative cuisine in his multiple restaurants and has become a leader in the extraordinary rise of American cuisine of the last 20 years." --Jacques Pepin, Chef, Author, Teacher"This book is a true representation of all that has contributed to the success and reputation of Restaurant Daniel over the past 20 years. My friendship with Daniel has spanned the last three decades, starting when we both began our careers in New York City. We have grown along a parallel path, and I am pleased to be able to call Daniel one of my oldest friends. I have a great respect for him as a man and as a chef." --Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Chef/Owner of Jean-Georges"Grand tenors of the kitchen, such as my friend Daniel, never cease to enchant me. Daniel: My French Cuisine shows his extraordinary journey, marked by relentless conviction, overwhelming passion, his instinctual culinary intelligence, and just the right amount of ambition. Along the way he has cultivated his ceaseless inquisitive nature-the hallmark of visionary insight." --Michel Guérard, Chef / Owner Les Prés d'Eugénie - Michel Guérard
