Michelin-starred chef Laurent Gras releases his cookbook for iPad
New York-based, Michelin-starred French chef Laurent Gras is the latest chef to release his first cookbook in digital form.
Like Grant Achatz of Next and Alinea in Chicago, Gras — who has received three Michelin stars for his work at three different restaurants around the world — chose to bypass the traditional publishing medium and go straight to the e-book route with his first cookbook “Laurent Gras: My Provence”.
Developed specifically for the iPad, the digital cookbook can also be viewed on any laptop or desktop and features about 40 recipes that reflect the French chef’s food background growing up on the Côte d’Azur.
Dishes include classic Provence meals like ratatouille and clams marinière and other French dishes like pork chop en papillotte with juniper berries, garlic-roasted côte de bœuf and his grandmother’s coffee-infused cake called gâteau de galette. Recipes include step-by-step photos and videos.
“Laurent Gras: My Provence” is available at http://www.altaeditions.com for US$9.99
