The Hotel Crillon is one of the most exceptional palace hotels in Paris, and its two-Michelin star restaurant Les Ambassadeurs is one of the best in France. Jean-Francois Piege is the dynamic young chef at the helm, serving up an elaborate cuisine--driven by products that are in season and at their best--that has forged his reputation worldwide. In this original book, Piege takes us behind closed doors to reveal the secrets of the Crillon's kitchen, then invites us into his home where he shares his informal recipes that he dishes up to friends and family. This book contains over eighty recipes for both special occasions and simpler dishes for every day. This beautiful volume offers a wealth of ideas for both the amateur and seasoned chef.
