Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What? A French chef and that Scandinavian classic, lefse? Chef Guibert has cooked fine cuisine around the world but when a visitor presented him with a stack of lefse, he was puzzled. Never satisfied with the ordinary, he wanted to come up with ideas for lefse beyond butter and sugar. His creations were met with enthusiasm, praise and quickly-emptied plates. A collection of these unique, satisfying and truly revolutionary ideas for lefse are included in this book.

Synopsis:

Whyís a French chef writing about lefse? Chef Guibert has cooked fine cuisine around the world, but when a visitor presented him with lefse, he came up with ideas beyond butter and sugar. His creations were met with praise and quickly emptied plates.

About the Author

Christian Guibert's professional life started at the age of 15 at the Georges V Hotel in Paris, France, where he was employed as a bellboy. From there he attended Hotel Restaurant School, but was let go for insubordination to the teachers by suggesting the radical idea of putting raspberries on green salad. He spent years traveling and working throughout Europe, learning various ethnic cooking and techniques. In France at age 27, he opened a French-style pizzeria on the coast of Normandy, then another on the French Riviera. He spent the next several years as chef for the Rolling Stones, for bass guitarist Bill Wyman, and then as personal chef aboard a 150-foot yacht traveling the Mediterranean, Bahama Caribbean and West Indies. After his time spent on the yacht, Guibert went back to work on shore and opened two restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale area, where he was eventually offered a job on another yacht working for Wayne Huizena and family. He worked for them five years, until meeting Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Hubbard of Hubbard Broadcasting in 1984. He has been with them ever since. In October 2001, Guibert stumbled onto the Scandinavian mainstay lefse, which was untouched territory for him. He decided to tackle lefse in a new form and wrote his first cookbook, OOOLALA LEFSE!, with the help of his wife, Kathy, who helped edit and did the artwork. Christian looks forward to writing more cookbooks in the future and also hopes to expand into television.
