Bras, The Tastes Of Aubrac : Recipes And Stories From The World-Renowned French Restaurant
Sébastien Bras, With Texts By Pierre Carrey
With this long-awaited book, Sébastien Bras, son of legendary French chef Michel Bras, invites us through the doors of Le Suquet, his two Michelin star restaurant with dramatic views over the breath-taking countryside.
Through never-before-published recipes and specially commissioned photography, Bras tells the story of his family, where cooking is not only passed from generation to generation but is constantly reinvented and imagined. Grounded and shaped by the terroir of his home in Aubrac, Bras' cuisine is internationally recognized as one of the most influential in the world, particularly for having raised vegetables and herbs to an art form.
Featuring 40 iconic recipes, including Gargouillou of Young Herbs and Vegetables; Curry Cream Coulant; Onion Squash Aligot; and Potato Waffle filled with Beurre-noisette Cream; along with sumptuous and evocative images of the restaurant and surrounding landscape, Bras: The Tastes of Aubrac opens the Bras family album, showcasing the amazing story of a culinary tradition passing through generations of world-class chefs.
Trained by his father Michel and top chefs such as Pierre Gagnaire and Michel Guérard, Sébastien Bras took over the family restaurant Le Suquet in 2009. Sébastien creates a cuisine shaped by its French terroir in various venues around the globe, including Paris, at La Halle aux grains situated within the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection, and Japan, where the Bras will open a restaurant designed by Kengo Kuma.
