Because of Bocuse – (Hopefully) a Series

After living in Lyon for nearly a year, I’m all set to fly back home to Manila in about 30 hours (yay!). It’s been a good learning experience, mishaps and all, but overall it was fun. That’s what really matters in the end, after all. Anyway, dramz aside, I’m actually to tell you all about what is hopefully the beginning of another series here on BaconTunaMelt. You see, my colleagues in Lyon gave me a book called Bocuse in Your Kitchen. It is a recipe book of French nomz by world-renowned nouvelle cuisine chef Paul Bocuse.

Paul Bocuse, who is from Lyon, has contributed largely to French gastronomy. His restaurants are all over the city, one of which has received the rare 3 star rating by the Michelin Guide (link to his restaurants here, it’s in French but you have Internet, so use Google Translate). He is also considered as an ambassador of French cuisine, for promoting and sharing the French way of cooking to the world. Students from all over the world who have trained at the Institut Paul Bocuse have become master chefs as well.

The book has dedications from officemates! D'awwwwwshucks.

The book includes hundreds of French recipes that I hope to replicate one day. In line with this, I declare on this post, that sometime during the course of the next few months, BaconTunaMelt will be filled with  successful executions of recipes from this book. We’ll try to keep the kitchen disasters down to a minimum (hopefully!) and try to make fabulous French nomz in Manila.

  1. I recieved this cbokoook as a gift about 9 or so years ago, when it came out. I have been using it ever since, I find it hard to cook chicken without it. It’s filled with quick, easy and delicious recipes. Some are more complex than others, some are just 2-3 ingredients! You can’t get more easy than that. I have tried and true recipes I know by heart now, I would recommend this cbokoook to beginners everywhere.
