“David Bitton is one of the rare breed of chefs who intuitively understands food and flavour,” says food journalist Sally Hammond.
We thought that this statement would be the perfect introduction to David Bitton’s new French-inspired cookbook, although he also draws his inspiration from many other places, including the mixed histories of his family. It also highlights the philosophies of the Bitton Gourmet Café and Grocer, David’s Sydney institution.
covers everything from breakfast to the main course as well as desserts and sides, with some recipes taken straight from David’s café. Everything is touched by David’s understanding of flavour as well as provincial French charm, from his Soupe a L’oignon to his Bread and Butter Pudding with Crème Anglaise.
Built on tradition, memory, and of course a love of cooking with friends and family, Bitton
can be appreciated by any home chef, even if they’ve never stepped foot in David’s café before!
