If the Design Museum ever produced a cookbook, it would look like Anne-Sophie Pic’s latest collection of recipes, Le Livre Blanc. From the pure white front cover ? with its title carved out in industrial- style font ? to the silver-edged pages, this is a modern, striking cookbook, destined for coffee tables as well as kitchens inside fashionable apartments in Paris, London and New York.


Pic delivers insights into her creative process, including the interplay of imagination and memory in creating dishes, and the associations between flavours and textures that make her cooking unique. Exquisite presentation, combined with the crystalline simplicity of the photography make Le Livre Blanc one of the most beautiful cookery books ever published.”


Le Livre Blanc has been shortlisted for the Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards in the UK, Michael Roulier has been shortlisted in the visual category for his work in Le Livre Blanc.
