CUISINE AND CONFIDENCES
Price £26 Authors Marion and Romain Grosjean www.romaingrosjeanstore.com
Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean developed a passion for cooking when he needed to lose weight when going from GP2 to his first, shortlived, F1 stint. Then after Renault dropped him at the end of 2009, he used his catering skills to help process his career reboot.
Now, thanks to his journalist and TV presenter wife, Marion, there is a book dedicated to the French driver’s personal cuisine. Marion and Romain Grosjean – Cuisine and Confidences is told through the former’s voice and is, without doubt, a fascinating insight into their family life. There are few tales from the motorsport sphere, but in an era of safe, Pr-spun stories, the anecdotes feel refreshingly honest. There are 46 recipes in total – only six suitable for vegetarians – but it is decidedly different, and all the better for it.
