the michel bras experience,
This review is from: Essential Cuisine (Hardcover)
Michel Bras, long known as a wizard of French Cuisine and chef/proprietor of one of the best restaurants that France has to offer has produced a beautiful book.
Not so much a cookbook, though it is: more a complete reflection of the man, the restaurant, the food and the Aubrac area which made him. A testament of his life's work. The photographs are exquisite and this book is worth reading even if you have no interest in cooking. The recipes however are simply put together with explicit instructions.
This book is the next best thing to actually having a meal at the restaurant.Yes the food really looks that good. The book brought back the sights, smells, tastes and atmosphere of this magic kingdom in France.
My one regret is that I paid nearly twice the Amazon price for my copy but I did buy it on the spot after a birthday lunch chez Michel Bras.
