Now, in "Pierre Gagnaire: Reinventing French Cuisine," the legendary chef tells the story of his 40-year journey to culinary superstardom. Featuring reflections on Gagnaires life and work, along with 40 of his favorite recipes, this is less a cookbook than an inside look at the making of a great chef.
Organized chronologically, the book begins with Gagnaires training and follows him to his restaurants in St.-Etienne and Paris, which were both awarded three Michelin stars, and beyond. The accompanying recipeswhether a simple potatoes au gratin; an elegant combination of white cabbage, buffalo mozzarella, and caviar; or a savory potato gnocchi with saffron, artichoke, and roasted hazelnutsare drawn from each period in Gagnaires life, showing his early influences, the development of his vibrant signature style, and his ongoing experiments in modern French cuisine.
