Backstage and small stories about great chefs

Petites Histoires De Grands Chefs

We have good news for all fans of Top Chef and TV show Chefs! Do you dream of reading amusing anecdotes and taking a peek at what happens backstage in the kitchens of Alain Ducasse, Thierry Marx, Yannick Alléno or Robuchon ?

Then quickly go pick up a copy of the new must-read book by Albert Nahmias, éminence grise of gastronomy, but also journalist, culinary advisor and food critic, who will delight you with 40 wonderful chapters featuring a generation of legendary chefs.

We adore: traveling back in time to the swinging 70s chez Olympe, Nahmias's buzzing restaurant that greeted all the big names of show-business, rediscovering the birth of Nouvelle Cuisine, having dinner at Castel or the Négresco, Nice, rediscovering an era when obviously people really knew how to have fun while savoring great dishes at the same time coming up with witty remarks.
