150 New Recipes for Fresh, Healthy Dishes
Alain Ducasse & Paule Neyrat
Contribution by Christophe Saintagne
Written by Alain Ducasse and Paule Neyrat, for anyone interested in a healthier, lighter alternative to traditional French cuisine, this collection of simple, easy French recipes focuses on organic, locally sourced, and sustainable ingredients.
Alain Ducasse’s Nature series of cookbooks makes eating healthfully on a daily basis both simple and pleasurable. Ducasse dispels the idea that French food is defined by complicated techniques, time-consuming recipes, and loads of butter and cream. Along with nutritionist Paule Neyrat and chef Christophe Saintagne, he shows how going back to basics means rediscovering the pleasures of sustainable, seasonal French food with maximum nutrition and flavor.
The recipes are first and foremost delicious, but they are also healthy and respectful of natural resources and stress sustainable practices—which is why animal protein is de-emphasized (as well as salt and sugar, too) in favor of more vegetables, more legumes, and more grains, leaving meat and fish to be used sparingly—if at all, as many of the recipes are vegetarian—for flavor.
Simple Nature takes a more holistic approach to mealtime and includes tips and ideas for reusing leftovers and reducing waste.
Foreword by Edmonde Charles-Roux
From high-society balls and fashion shoots to portraits of artists and scenes from urban life in France, this volume showcases Doisneau’s best photographs for Vogue Paris.
Celebrated photographer Robert Doisneau worked for Vogue from 1949 until 1965, illustrating a postwar France filled with a renewed zest for life. His little-known images of haute couture featured models like Brigitte Bardot and Bettina, who he photographed in the studio and out on the streets. He chronicled the members of the café society in their stately homes and at glamorous costume galas, dancing the night away. Best known for his humanist approach, he masterfully captured scenes from everyday life—from the grace of a wedding procession over a footbridge to the petulance of a child impatient for cake. Doisneau’s photographs captured the spirit of the era and featured celebrities like Karen Blixen, Picasso, Colette, and Jean Cocteau, as well as jazz musicians, movie stars, and humble craftsmen at work. Legendary Vogue editor in chief Edmonde Charles-Roux’s personal homage to the photographer—who was her friend and colleague—offers intimate insight into the man behind the camera, as complex and beautiful as the people and places he immortalized.
