    Description"Cuisine Gascon" is Michelin-starred chef Pascal Aussignac's exquisitely evocative celebration of the food and culture of his native Gascony. On moving to Britain in the late 1990s, Pascal opened up his award-winning restaurant Club Gascon in London's Smithfield Market. Rapidly acquiring a Michelin star, Club Gascon fast became the place to go to experience some of the best French food in the country - the food of his native South West of France, the very heart of the country's cuisine. Over 100 traditional recipes, some with modern twists and inflections, sit within a sumptuously designed and beautifully photographed book. Unashamedly sensuous food photography is accompanied by evocative images of Gascony, its food and people, from fellow Frenchman Jean Cazals. "Cuisine Gascon" is a food lover's delight and a cook's heaven - a worthy testament to the talents of both the author and his native land of Gascony.

    Author Information
    Pascal Aussignac is a Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur. He cooks in and oversees five award-winning restaurants in London, all of them with a slightly different culinary theme but all of them alluding to and celebrating the food of his beloved homeland of Gascony. Pascal Aussignac's restaurant Club Gascon was awarded a Michelin Star in 2002 and in 2007 was awarded the ultimate peer group accolade of Restaurant of the Year by The Caterer Magazine. The sister restaurants in the Club Gascon group are Comptoir Gascon and Cellar Gascon in Smithfield, Le Cercle off Sloane Street in Knightsbridge and Croque Gascon in the newly opened Westfield Centre in Shepherd's Bush. Pascal Aussignac lives in London just above two of his restaurants in Smithfield.
