Raymond Blanc knows more about food and cooking than pretty much anyone else on earth, and his life to date has been a search for culinary perfection. Now, for the first time, he tells the story of that search and shares the secrets he has learned along the way. Woven around stories from his childhood years, when Raymond learned the love of good food at his mother’s knee, are tales from the sharp end of the food business today, his thoughts about where food is going in the future and a passionate appeal for a more sustainable cuisine. From his days as a young boy collecting frogs’ legs in rural France to his career as a prodigiously talented chef cooking at the very highest levels of cuisine, Raymond’s passion for food has remained a constant. And in A Taste of My Life, his story takes us to every corner of the culinary universe, from simple, rustic cuisine to the rarefied realms of molecular gastronomy. A Taste of My Life is a wonderfully engaging memoir by a culinary genius and essential reading for anyone with an interest in food and cooking.
