Book Description

1 Sep 2011
It is time to get back to basics and rediscover the pleasure of simple food. Alain Ducasse When people think of French food, they often imagine laborious recipes that are loaded with butter and cream, and which can only be mastered with the skills of a sous chef. In Nature, Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse, in collaboration with nutritionist Paule Neyrat, rediscovers the pleasure of simple food, and presents delicious French cuisine without the fat or the fuss. With over 190 easy-to-make creations, Ducasse shows the subtle wonders of a wide range of delectable flavours, giving pride of place to fruit, vegetables and cereals, which are sure to leave you feeling great. Featuring delightful line drawings, mouthwatering food photography, and with Alain s useful snippets of advice peppered throughout the book, Nature is more than a recipe book: it shows another way to enjoy food that is more natural, healthy and delicious.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nature 8 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A beautiful book, with wonderful and inventive recipes. Makes me feel I can cook interesting vegetable dishes, even if I have to use supermarket products. I like the way the recipes are set out, they are easy to follow, and the advice and suggestions for alternative ingredients are invaluable. However, the print is in different colours, and rather faint, which makes following a recipe in artificial light very difficult, the yellow, pale green and grey in particular just disappear on the page. Definitely five stars for the recipes, but only three for the final result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Cookbook 10 May 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Back to the roots of the Mediterranean diet, in this book Alain Ducasse showcases accessible recipes for the average experience cook. I noticed that most of the recipes are for the May 'till September season as only during that time of the year the fresh ingredients mentioned are available. I would like to see some ideas for the late autumn and winter season.
The nutritionist comments are useful to better balance the menus.
Highly Recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book 18 Feb 2013
By I. Darren TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
To the enthusiastic cook this might be the nearest they ever get to working with Alain Ducasse, one of the greatest living chefs of our time.

Through this imposing yet accessible hardback book, one is given direct access to Ducasse and gets the chance to learn a bit about his culinary philosophy and modus operandi as he turns his expert eye to natural, simple, healthy and good-for-you ingredients that can be transformed into some rather spectacular dishes. Proving there is more to Ducasse's repertoire than rich, intricate French dining, the reader can see Ducasse's take on a much more simpler French-dining experience that will still have you wanting more.

In many ways this book is a modern-day curate's egg. It certainly has its quirks such as the cartoon-style imagery that can be found throughout. They just seem to jar the otherwise pleasant flowk, its full-colour photographs and the great text. They didn't work for the reviewer in any case and proved to be a bit of a distraction.

Once you start digging in the book you begin to get on the Ducasse wavelength. Nothing has been taken for granted. Need a chicken stock? Lemons? Ketchup? Yes, there is a Ducasse recipe for that which forms part of its "larder essentials" section. Ducasse is serious about working with only the very best materials and nothing is left to chance. You might think this is fussy and over-the-top but one must presume that Ducasse really does know what he is doing and why. Even a busy chef, no matter how prolific and experienced, would not seek to do unnecessary work if they can avoid doing so as it would be a major draw on their resources. Put your trust in the master.
