Not simply for my love of discovery and pastures new, but also for the pleasures of "stumbling across" objects, products, or unusual, novel ways of doing things; it all stimulates my curiosity before inhabiting my memories, imagination and pleasures."--Alain Ducasse From Brooklyn hot dogs to Manhattan's most chic restaurants, world-renowned chef Alain Ducasse reveals a palette of flavors, colors, images, and aromas from all four corners of the globe: his own gourmet New York.
