TASTE COMES FROM TASTING: THE LIFE AND WORK OF ECKART WITZIGMANN
»It doesn‘t always have to be lobster or Wagyu meat«, says the master chef and in the first chapter of his biography celebrates the art of frying a simple egg. Eckart Witzigmann is a pioneer and visionary who has shaped the world of culinary art like no other. He established the Nouvelle Cuisine in the German-speaking world and thus founded a new school of cooking. His students, now famous in their own right, include chefs such as Harald Wohlfahrt, Hans Haas and Roland Trettl.
In this two-volume work, the chef of the century revisits what was truly essential: the things that were important to him. Are important. And remain important.
