- A very handsome book. With many coloured photographs, full page drawings and numerous photos of the restaurant and its dishes. Recipes of famous Point dishes adorn many chapters about the restaurant's history and it's employees. Although this is a very glossy production it presents a family feel to this very famous and popular restaurant. This essential volume is as celebrated for Pointís wise, witty and provocative views on food as for his remarkable, inventive recipes compiled from his written notes. From his restaurant 'La Pyramide' in Vienne, a town half an hour to the south of Lyon, he gained three Michelin stars and trained a generation of French master chefs; Paul Bocuse, Alain Chapel, Louis Outhier, Georges Perrier and Jean and Pierre - the Brothers Troisgros. His legacy has had a huge impact on this present generation of famous chef's and will in turn have a long-lasting effect on future cooks and gastronomes.
