What can you expect from a chef raised on Mauritius, who apprenticed in South Africa, traveled extensively within Latin and Asian cultures, mastered California cuisine as a Beverly Hills chef, and who now runs his own restaurant in New Orleans? Take it from legendary chef Jean-Louis Palladin: "A fabulous tour of global cuisine!" In DOMINIQUE'S FRESH FLAVORS, Dominique Macquet explores exotic culinary frontiers with the expertise and grounding of a classically trained French chef. "Cooking with Latitude" is how he describes both the poetic license he takes with traditional food and his culinary palate's tropical accents, which are garnered from his travels. The result is a stunning cuisine, at once local and global, surprising and familiar—and simply delicious!
