    I love it, and honestly, this is definitely meant to be a book that isn't about technique, but rather about combining ingredients properly. That way, each chef, each cook, can make their own interpretation on classic dishes. It forms a base repertory from which you can easily build.

    Yup, loved them working with this book.
    Make it a chef's battle. Same recipe, each delivers their own interpretation.

    I'm late watching this, and it was great fun, but I'm really surprised at the seemingly general ignorance of what "pommes noisettes" are in England.

    My husband is a chef & he still has his Le Repertoire De La Cuisine from school. This video filled him with evil glee, but he was also on your side & thought you did a solid job of interpreting.

    I've had that book from my early cheffing days and honestly all i actually do with it is make sure it's always discreetly obviously displayed in my recipe grab books without ever being grabbed.

    I mean i have read it, it's just not useful for much except when you can't remember the super fancy name for something. Mostly my kitchen terminology is more " oh just...mnh...* flappy spider finger gesture*" (note: this only works with chefs you know well or for freaking out the commis)

    "Pommes noisettes" are actually mashed potatoes mixed with eggs and potato starch, fried in a pan in little balls.
    "Fleurons" are baked.

    This is a great idea. I would love to see more dishes made from this book. Perhaps a head to head battle rather than a combined effort would be a cool twist.

    I actually think Ben is right about the nut shaped potatoes. He said it in a weird way but they are like mini potatoes. In Dutch we call them 'kriel'. I bet there is a British name too. Isnt it like baby potato or new potato?

    Idea: Get two people to memorize a similar recipe but with very different instructions. Tell them they were given the same recipe and have to work together to create it.
