This oversize and attractively designed book celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the restaurant at which Chef Paul Bocuse became world renowned.

The story begins when Georges Bocuse becomes a cook at what is then called Hôtel Café Restaurant du Pont: two years later his young wife Irma will give birth upstairs to their son Paul.

To some degree a scrapbook—there are photos of the chef as a schoolboy, at table with Alain Chapel, Roger Vergé, and Jacques Maximin, in a newspaper ad with Jacqueline Bisset, and hang-gliding in the Alps—the book also contains more than 40 current recipes from Le Auberge du Pont de Collonges, the official name of the restaurant most commonly known simply as Paul Bocuse.

There are tributes from the chef's children, his longtime staff, and those who are currently running the restaurant.  Everything adds up to a tribute to the lasting influence of one of the twentieth century's defining culinary figures, both in France and abroad.

Hardcover. Color photographs. In French.
