François Perret, Éric Nebot


When pastry chef François Perret left the world-famous Ritz in Paris to compete in a food truck festival in Los Angeles, he was pursuing the same mission: to surprise, to create, and to make dreams come true. If food is about connection, passion, and breaking down boundaries, what better challenge than to pack up and leaving the well-equipped, Michelin-rated French kitchen for the cramped, mobile, but unbeatably accessible food truck half a world away? Part travel documentary, part companion guide, part fusion recipe book, this volume accompanies the Netflix series The Chef in a Truck. Bringing together both culinary worlds, it includes recipes from the high-end pastry environment using the most exclusive ingredients, as well as recipes inspired by encounters with local chefs and producers in California. Follow Perret’s unique journey, recreate his recipes in your own kitchen, and explore the places he visits in Paris and Los Angeles through his personal address book. An adventure is guaranteed-one which affirms the true emotional and creative beauty of food and the values we can learn from stepping out of our comfort zones and into an unfamiliar and exciting world.
