Bras's Michelin-three-star restaurant in Aubrac, France, is as renowned for the chef's use of foraged ingredients as for his dramatic presentations, which are beautifully captured here. Bras' style has influenced countless other chefs' work and books in the last two decade, and there simply is no better window on his approach than this arrestingly handsome book.

A magnificent production, teeming with ideas, it includes a number of fine photographs of landscapes and people by Bras and many others of his food creations by Christian Palis and Jean-Pierre Trebosc. These are often dramatic, airy foodscapes, frequently deconstructions of Bras’s dishes that show off the ingredients even as they exhibit the chef’s considerable skills. Long after its first appearance, it continues to excite professional cooks who walk in the door here and see it.
