The Chef in a Truck
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.
