Alexis Gauthier presents cookbook Vegetronic at his Michelin-starred restaurant
Vegetronic will change the way you think about and cook vegetables and fruit – it’s as simple as that.
Michelin-starred chef, MasterChef judge and Saturday Kitchen regular Alexis Gauthier is not a vegetarian, but he knows how to create fabulous recipes where vegetables are the star turn.
When Alexis Gauthier started his cooking apprenticeship, he was told that he should know every classic dish in the canon of French gastronomy, and in the process became just another recipe follower.
Then in 1993 he entered the three-Michelin-starred kitchen of Alain Ducasse in the south of France and slowly rediscovered the fundamentals of cooking, learning to trust his instincts and intuition and opening up his mind to the possibilities of individual ingredients and combinations that enhance the depth of flavour of both … and that is what Vegetronic is all about. Just a little of Alexis’s knowledge will change your approach to and enjoyment of vegetables.
He presented Vegetronic at his eponymous restaurant in Soho, with some of the most important names of the London food industry in attendance at the launch. The chef served delicious food based on the book and also on his restaurant’s menu since 21st March.
