"Jean-Francois Piege...takes us home with him to share in the more casual fare he dishes up to friends and family in his debut cookbook, At the Crillon and at Home. More than 80 recipes and 334 color illustrations may get you into the kitchen or just enhance your epicurean reveries." ~BookPage
Written in two sections, this beautiful coffee-table cookbook offers contemporary French cuisine for chefs, restaurateurs, and experienced nonprofessionals. Every page is filled with stunning photographs and beautifully laid out with step-by-step instructions and personal commentary by French chef Piège. This is his first book, and he shares his professional kitchen and home recipes. Located at the foot of the Champs-Élysées, the Hôtel de Crillon is a historic five-star luxury hotel; its restaurant, Les Ambassadeurs, was voted 45th best in the world. Although the Crillon section may be intimidating for the novice cook, keep browsing to find traditional, manageable dishes from eggs to pizza to orange cake. Recommended for large libraries and as an update to French cookbook collections.
