“Collages et recettes” d’Alain Passard

Cuisine is so beautiful : Discovered during my reading of the kitchen, I fell in love with a wonderful book – “Collages and receipts” Alain Passard. The great chef presents its revenue through beautiful collages. Culinary artist or painter, cook, his recipes as he imagines tables. It explores the nuances of taste and color and famous vegetables. “I want to make a vintage vegetable, as I want to make the gardener, the great business of tomorrow. Artists are forgotten. I would also convey the intensity of my feelings for young leaders.” So if you want to make a gift to an avid cook, offer this wonderful book! great tasting!

Alexandre Gauthier at La Grenouill├Ęre

Discover the website of La Grenouill├Ęre

Restored farmhouse in La Madelaine-sous-Montreuil (Pas-de-Calais) where the young chef Alexandre Gauthier welcomes you. Best designer for the book of food trends “Omnivore” and “best delirium” for Fooding 2012, Alexandre Gauthier has talent and knows how to have fun.

As nice as well, all in color, while natural as the seasons …

Extract from the note Fooding

“Gauthier, obsessive product, completely bent and gifted seasons of cooking, walk sends conventions. Here is the raw, the savage, the deviant. They graze weeds, you bite the unripe fruit. Three dishes mark: green basil strawberries, cucumber, foie gras, washed down with salt water, then the oyster hot zucchini and lobster nestled in the branches of juniper burned, to grasp with your fingers bestial ”

You can also sleep there. The farmhouse has been restored by Patrick Bouchain (architect-designer of the Lieu Unique in Nantes).
