Degustation: A Master Chef's Life Through Menus
Alain Fabrègues is one of Australia’s premier French chefs and his first cookbook, Degustation showcases his passion for creating exquisite fine food. Much like a degustation menu, this stunning cookbook is presented in many parts – the chapters begin with an aspect of Alain’s life and recount events that shaped his amazing career.
Well-known for founding The Loose Box restaurant in Mundaring, Western Australia, Alain’s culinary skills have been developed and refined over 45 years, from his start as an apprentice in Bordeaux, France.
Seventy of Alain’s famous dishes have been expertly photographed by Craig Kinder and come accompanied by a number of drawings and paintings by Fabrègues himself, who believes the marriage between creative art and cuisine is integral to his success.
