La Mere Brazier was the most famous restaurant in France from the moment it opened in 1921. Its namesake, Eugénie Brazier, was the first woman ever to be awarded 6 Michelin stars. She was the inspiration and mentor for all modern French cooking. A masterclass on how to cook, this book reveals over 300 of Brazier's recipes that stunned all of France - from her Bresse chicken in mourning (with truffles) to her lobster Aurora - as well as simple traditional recipes that anyone can easily follow at home. Written in her own words, each page captures the unique atmosphere of France, of French society, of French cooking and of the relationships between men and women.
