(Author)
Available

Description

From the author of the widely acclaimed Heat , an exhilarating account of Bill Buford's adventures in the world of French cooking.

'A romping, chomping, savoury tour de force... Hilarious' Simon Schama


What does it take to master French cooking? This is the question that drives Bill Buford to abandon his perfectly happy life in New York City and (with his wife and three-year-old twin sons in tow) move to Lyon, the so-called gastronomic capital of France.

But what was meant to be six months in a new city turns into a wild five-year odyssey. As Buford apprentices at Lyon's best boulangerie, studies at a legendary culinary school and cooks at a storied Michelin-starred restaurant, he discoveries the true grit, precision and passion of the French kitchen.
