Table of Contents

Marvelous Recipes is a remarkable work both for the breadth and richness of the recipes presented and for the intimate perspective that Marcon provides on the relationship between his cuisine, his native Auvergne, and his fellow countrymen who supply his provender. Recipes follow the natural order of the year, offering a bounty of appetizers, vegetables, fish and meat entrees and desserts suited to each of the four seasons. Marcon's cuisine relies on the elements unique to his region, including a dazzling array of mushrooms, cheeses and local herbs. Recipes born from traditional French cuisine take on a new dimension in their simplicity and modernity. He combines ingredients in a personal style that emphasizes brilliant flavors in unaccustomed and delightful ways.

Marcon places his cuisine in regional context with an extensive introductory essay describing the origins of his culinary philosophy, the local foods that define his cuisine, and the development and refining of his skills as a chef at his acclaimed hotel-restaurant in Saint-Bonnet-le-Froid. This context is further enriched by affectionate profiles of the local farmers, mushroom foragers, butchers, cheesemakers and other food purveyors whose provender fills Marcon's kitchen and shapes his menus at Auberge et Clos des Cimes. The book concludes with 28 "Basic Recipes" fundamental to Marcon's creative interpretation of regional French cuisine.

Marcon has placed his tiny mountaintop village on the gastronomic map of France and the world, winning the coveted designation as Gault & Millau Chef of the Year in 2001. Yet as he notes in the introduction to Marvelous Recipes , he has never lost touch with the natural roots of his cuisine:

"The lessons I learn from nature -- when I am out collecting mushrooms, for example -- drive me to create recipes strongly based on the ingredients and their authentic context. My culinary style pays homage to all those who live and work on this land, which defines their destinies."
