I have had the pleasure of borrowing the book "Great Chefs of France" from my good friend Chef Johnny. He would rather not lend it, as he consider it a personal treasure. But, I got it, and I rather enjoied it. Even if written as far back as 1978, many of the Chefs is still walking, and if not so, their cuisine and style is here to stay for ages to come. The book is very close up and personal, with a good line and small stories on the side. For a person working with food: this is a basic, it is history, but still living. Today we have "The Naked Chef" and ""Kitchen Confidential" among many. But we all come from somewhere, on our way somewhere. And we all feed from historie. And "Great Chefs of France" is an importent part of that history. Bon Aptetite!
