Simple Nature by Alain Ducasse
Alain Ducasse owns 26 restaurants across seven countries that have earned him an astounding 18 Michelin stars. Last year his flagship restaurant, Alain Ducasse at the Plaza Athénée, reclaimed its third star after Ducasse swapped his rich meat dishes for a menu focused on vegetables and fish. “Making vegetables taste as delicious as animal fat takes a lot of time,” he says. “But I am the master of it and, believe me, you taste my vegetables and you’ll be instantly seduced.” Want some sexy vegetables of your own?
