About Alain Ducasse

Alain Ducasse

“Tasting a dish should be memorable…If nothing remains in the memory of a single guest, then I have made a mistake,” said Alain Ducasse, whose culinary career began at age 16 in his native France and whose empire comprises more than a dozen restaurants in seven countries. His name appears on dozens of cookbooks in both English and French. @alainducasse
