From their signature Seafood Sausage and other fish and shellfish creations to salads and first courses, poultry and rabbit, meat and game, side dishes, and desserts, this book simply overflows with nouvelle cuisine classics. A must for anyone who has ever had the pleasure of dining there - and perfect for professionals and the armchair market - "Chanterelle" is a cookbook to savour.
