Who better to turn to than Alain Ducasse for a lesson in classic French bistro food? His book, Classic French Comfort Food, is an homage to three of the Parisian bistros he manages – Allard, Aux Lyonnais and Benoît. Each one an institution in its own right, they have been serving up authentic dishes to Parisians and visitors for over a century.


A starter that never fails to impress, scallops can always be counted on to bring the wow-factor. Made with capers, lemon peel and butter, a sauce à la Grenobloise is the definitive partner to myriad fish dishes. Master its formula and you’ll never look back.

Read on for an Alain Ducasse recipe that will delight everyone’s tastebuds.
