As Buford apprentices at Lyon’s best boulangerie, studies at a legendary culinary school and cooks at a storied Michelin-starred restaurant, he discoveries the true grit, precision and passion of the French kitchen.’Hugely entertaining’ Observer’Rollicking, food-stuffed entertainment… Gourmets and gourmands will savour this’ Spectator
