Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since its first publication in France in 1969, Ma Gastronomie has taken its place among the classics of French gastronomy. This essential volume is as celebrated for Fernand Point's wise, witty, and provocative views on food as for his remarkable, inventive recipes — over 200 of them — carefully compiled from his handwritten notes. An undisputed creative genius of French gastronomy and founder of the legendary La Pyramide restaurant, halfway between Paris and the Riviera, Point revolutionized French cuisine, building on its traditions and creating his own versions of the great classical dishes. His peers called him Le Roi, and during his reign there were few celebrities and no serious gourmet who didn't make the journey to dine at La Pyramide. His disciples, Paul Bocuse, Alain Chapel, and Jean and Pierre Troisgros, are among the world's greatest French chefs. As one of his three-star students, Francois Bise, said, "Point was an artist. It's difficult to say enough about him." In that spirit, it is not unfounded to assert that no cookbook collection is truly complete without a copy of Ma Gastronomie.

Review:

"I believe Fernand Point is one of the last true gourmands of the 20th century. His ruminations are extraordinary and thought-provoking — he has been an inspiration for legions of chefs." Thomas Keller, author of The French Laundry Cookbook

Synopsis:

First published in 1969, this landmark of French cuisine is back in print with an all-new edition featuring more than 200 of Point's remarkable, inventive recipes. 50 photos, 25 in color.
