By Christophe Blain
Be the first to review this product
Available in English for the very first time, In the Kitchen with Alain Passard is the first
graphic novel to enter the kitchen of a master chef. Over the course of three years,
illustrator Christophe Blain trailed acclaimed chef Alain Passard through his kitchens
and gardens. With simple yet sublime drawings and thousands of colorful panels, this
book gives the reader an inside, uncensored look at the world of Passard, who shocked
the food universe in 2001 by removing meat from the menu at his celebrated Paris
restaurant, L’Arpege, and dedicating himself to serving vegetables from his own organic
farms. This irresistible hardcover combines a portrait of an amazing chef, an inside look
at his creative process, and a humorous riff on fine dining culture—plus fifteen recipes
for the home kitchen—in one haute cuisine comic book for foodies!
