Michel Guérard, the memory of French cuisine

Michel Guérard, memoir of French cuisine, a book published by Editions Albin Michel. In the book, everything is true but everything sounds like a novel. We start with the childhood of a village kid, who grows up in the shadow of the family butcher shop, in a time troubled by war and a certain poverty. He is followed in his apprenticeship, at the age of 16 in pastry. And then very quickly, it was Paris and an original career in the lido cabaret before setting up his first pot-au-feu affair. In this popular neighborhood bistro, he first cooks for the workers, the little thugs before being distinguished by a renowned culinary critic who will attract a clientele of gourmets. Oh yes! As soon as these first confidants make you want to continue reading this book, a kind of literary indulgence can quickly arise.

Sophie Juby: I’m not talking about the sequel, the meeting with his wife in Reginskaya and their extraordinary journey. Everything is in the book!
