Essential Cuisine

by Michel Bras

Bras’s Michelin-three-star restaurant in Aubrac, France, is as renowned for the chef’s use of foraged ingredients as for his dramatic presentations, which are beautifully captured here. Bras’ style has influenced countless other chefs’ work and books in the last decade, and there simply is no better window on his approach than this arrestingly handsome book. Long after its first appearance, it still excites professional cooks who walk in the door here and see it.

I think I’ve gifted Michel Bras’s Essential Cuisine quite a bit, although it’s hard to do now because I think it’s out of print in English and quite expensive.
