It was London's first Michelin three-star restaurant, the place where diners enjoyed the finest French cuisine: now you can recreate the exquisite Le Gavroche experience in your own home. Michel Roux Jr., a second-generation chef and restaurateur, has won renown for his lighter, "modern French" cuisine, gracing classical French dishes with subtle Mediterranean and Asian flavors. More than 200 recipes and 288 pages offer a remarkable sampling of the best and most popular dishes from the best French restaurant outside of France. Arranged seasonally to highlight key ingredients, the recipes here include such delights as Brie stuffed with truffles; seared peppered tuna with caviar vinaigrette; lobster cassoulet; and hot chocolate souffle. Far more than a cookbook, this richly illustrated volume enables you to entertain with panache. Bring French ambiance into your home for both formal and informal occasions, and become an expert on selecting the appropriate wines. Plenty of tricks of the trade for planning, setting the table, and more are included to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
