A Taste of My Life
‘Only a few great chefs are produced every century. Raymond Blanc is one of those great chefs’
Marco Pierre White
His cooking has been described as 'an extraordinary process of creativity, passion, subtlety, indeed genius'. His life and career to date have been utterly dedicated to the search for culinary perfection.
Raymond's book, A Taste of My Life, will be published in a paperback edition on 22 September 2009. The book gives Raymond the chance to tell readers about his background, about all the things that combined to make him one of the outstanding chefs of his generation. Read about the greatest influences on his life - particularly his mother, Maman Blanc - "the greatest cook I know"!
In this book Raymond shares the fruits of his work and experimentation, and reveals the secrets of his gastronomy. There are stories from his time as a waiter and as a 'chef' having never cooked in a professional kitchen before!
Read his thoughts about where food is going and about his passionate belief in sustainable food from the earth and the sea.
"Essential reading for anyone with an interest in food and cooking, this is the definitive Raymond Blanc book by a culinary genius."
"Raymond Blanc has demonstrated that great restaurateurs need not be aggressive, raging monsters...A Taste of My Life is very well-seasoned...Absolutely mouth-watering stories." Libby Purves, Radio 4's Midweek
A Taste of My Life will be widely available from bookstores and online.
