Cuisinier Gascon : Meals from a Gascon Chef Hardback
"Cuisine Gascon" is Michelin-starred chef Pascal Aussignac's exquisitely evocative celebration of the food and culture of his native Gascony.
On moving to Britain in the late 1990s, Pascal opened up his award-winning restaurant Club Gascon in London's Smithfield Market.
Rapidly acquiring a Michelin star, Club Gascon fast became the place to go to experience some of the best French food in the country - the food of his native South West of France, the very heart of the country's cuisine.
Over 100 traditional recipes, some with modern twists and inflections, sit within a sumptuously designed and beautifully photographed book.
Unashamedly sensuous food photography is accompanied by evocative images of Gascony, its food and people, from fellow Frenchman Jean Cazals. "Cuisine Gascon" is a food lover's delight and a cook's heaven - a worthy testament to the talents of both the author and his native land of Gascony.
