I have just listened to an interview with this wonderful woman. Down to earth and hailing from her ancestors’ country home in the Perigord she still cooks on an open fire one day, with her grandmother's pots and pans, and in top kitchens the next. Always her food reflects the seasons, the markets and her love for excellent ingredients, cooked simply.
She spent 2 years cooking for the French President and another year cooking for scientists in Antarctica. She uses cooking as an avenue to adventure. There is now a movie about her, called Haute Cuisine. I can’t wait to see it but it could not be better than this interview with the real woman.
Do listen here; its a real treat. Thanks Theresa for the link.
