I am so pleased to announce the publication of my first book on French cuisine, my three-decade journey in France, which I start off with a brief overview of the Sustainable and seasonal French cuisine. Eating in season is using products that grow in that season until the next season rolls around, which provides a sustainable pattern of consumption that is low in carbon, thus reducing our impact on our planet.

The book is built on the four seasons : Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Each chapter is divided into three parts : Mets, Vins and Fromage. It ends with two of my favorite recipes. Each chapter has a few personal anecdotes and photos. The book ends with Les Indispensables, the little noticed Condiments that we use every day that add flavor and depth to our dishes.

The last page is dedicated to a few of my favorite places, a non-exhaustive list of restaurants and hotels I have visited recently and that I admire, appreciate.
