I doubt that Mr. Ducasse was in the kitchen and cooked this perfection, but whoever is the head chef at Louis XV by Alain Ducasse in Monte Carlo, I must say, he or she is very gifted. What I like about this particular style of cooking that it is so simple and produce based, yet so rich in flavors and textures… (I’ve posted about Louis XV in 2011…)
