Description: In the center of Paris, on one of the most beautiful squares in the world, the Hotel de Crillon is a vibrant symbol of culture and the art of living in the French tradition. This prestigious hotel has entrusted its cuisine to one of the most brilliant chefs of his generation, Christian Constant.
Inspired by the spirit and ambiance of the Crillon, his talents have bloomed, sometimes following classical precepts, and at others, liberating a spontaneous creative fantasy, but always faithful to the purity of culinary perfection.
This book describes in words and images the encounter between a legendary landmark and the ideas -- is the word "recipe" really adequate ? -- of a contemporary man, an artist for whom cooking is an essential means of expression. As these pages take you through the corridors and suites of the Hotel de Crillon as if you lived there, you will discover the secrets of the garden herbs consomme served with truffles and croutons, the Breton lobster lasagna, the shellfish cream with tarragon and the crunchy Guanaja chocolate shortbread.
Condition: Good condition.
