Shannon Bennett, the chef and owner of Melbourne's renowned French Restaurant, Vue de monde, takes readers on a tour of exquisite French cuisine. Sharing his passion and obsession with classical cuisine, Shannon describes his own experiences in some of the great kitchens of Europe and shows readers how to create an unforgettable dining experience in their own homes.

Recipes range from the deliciously simple, such as classical tomato gazpacho and the perfect mayonnaise, to the highly challenging assiette of hare, which needs care and dedication to produce but is worth every bit of effort involved.
