French Food Safari is a celebration of exquisite French cuisine in all its delicious complexity. Maeve O’Meara and chef Guillaume Brahimi explore both Paris and regional France – visiting some of France’s top chefs and providores. Meet the acclaimed Alain Ducasse, with an unprecedented 19 Michelin stars; the father of modern French cooking Paul Bocuse; legendary chef Guy Savoy, who has restaurants on three continents; and the incomparable king of sweets Pierre Hermé.
Maeve and Guillaume take us into the ancient cellars below the streets of Paris to meet baker Jean-Luc Poujauran, patissier Fabrice Le Bourdat and the legendary wood-fired oven of bakers Poilâne; on a delicious journey into the fragrant cheese rooms of Laurent Dubois; to the mountains of the Ardèche, the home of prolific cookbook author and chef Stéphane Reynaud; searching for truffles with the Pebeyre family, among groves of oak trees in Périgord; and into the aromatic world of Maison du Chocolat where liquid chocolate is transformed into exquisite sweet delights.
Australia’s crème de la crème of French-inspired chefs also feature in this mouth-watering cookbook, sharing their wisdom and recipes. Along with Guillaume Brahimi they share favourite recipes and introduce the classics of French cuisine. French Food Safari is far more than a cookbook, it’s a glimpse into a way of life that celebrates one of the best cuisines on the planet – a culture that revolves around sourcing and cooking the best regional produce, and taking the time to sit and enjoy the delicious results.
