About the Author
Chef Emmanuel Stroobant started his apprenticeship in Belgium. He spent his formative years at various Michelin star establishments within the country. It was during these years that he built a solid foundation in understanding classical French cuisine. This inevitably steered him to being named 'Best Apprentice Chef' for the 1987-1988 category.

My husband raves that it's one of the best investments I've made in my book collection. I love entertaining at home and my guests are full of praise whenever I feature some of the recipes from the cook book. My most resounding success was when I hosted an entire dinner party, from finger food to dessert, straight from the pages of "Cuisine Unplugged"
Like most wives, she was no doubt buying the book for herself, rather than looking to improve my infamous beans on toast with an injection of Lemongrass! But who cares; she has lovingly, and by the looks of things, quite simply, replicated some of the delicious creations found within the pages. Most of the ingredients these days can be found in even the most antiquated suburban supermarket, and we (well she) regularly impresses our dinner guests with some of our favourite recipes. No doubt it helps looking Oriental - I'm not sure they believe I've ever touched a Thai green chilli in my life, even when I have - AND paid the price later with a visit to the toilet, having forgotten to wash my hands...ouch!
I couldn't recommend this book highly enough, and is an absolute must for any bachelor (or out of favour husband) trying to impress any girl originating from anywhere East of Essex!
