That's me getting cozy with 24 Michelin stars!

That is all.

Oh man am I jealous. REALLY jealous. AGH! It looks like you met him in a bookstore. Was he signing a book? Or did you just see him randomly and run up to grab this photo ;-)

Hopie – Yes, he was signing his new books – I got “Le Tout Robuchon,” and I think it’s just the French cookbook I’ve been looking for!

Morisseau and D.K. – With LOTS of butter, as is his wont.

Sam – Quite softspoken, humble, and an all-around nice guy, as far as I can tell.

Jessica – Yup.

Anne – You said it!

Jody – I was not at all nervous – the line was 2 hours long and there was free champagne. ;)

Is that the French version of the new book that’s coming out in the USA? I’ve been reading all about it in English — it does look great!

It is indeed! I’m psyched because now I can learn more about how to cook the various cuts of meat or fish available here – easier than trying to figure out the French equivalents for American recipes. Also, he has some great seasonal produce charts and an awesome potato chart. Now I know what kind of potatoes to use to recreate his incredible purée at home!
