For me this book was a bit if a game changer. The photography/styling used canvas instead of plates which made the food look incredible. His use of wild leaves and herbs was way ahead of the current foraging phenomenon.
I remember reading this book for the first time , every picture could have easily been a painting. His style is so beautiful that it hasn't aged at all and like the work of all great artists becomes timeless

Few chefs have had as strong of an influence on cooking as chef Bras. Much of his style and technique is still used in many kitchens to this day.

This book and the cuisine of Chef Michel rocked my world when it came to ideas of how to plate food. The photography alone is jaw dropping.
