Anne-Sophie Pic

Anne-Sophie Pic manages several Michelin-starred restaurants such as the Maison Pic, to which she gave back 3 Michelin stars in 2007. She keeps exploring new flavours, often with a touch of bitterness and spices, and always looks for new dining experience to sublimate her plates.

CONFIDENCES OF THE CHEF

Are you rather "salty" or "sweet"?


As a cook, I have a natural preference for salty. I have an atypical approach to sweet as I work a lot with bitterness and just like I do with salty plates, I try to combine flavours around bitterness. I therefore propose desserts in which sweetness does not come from the sugar.


 


What is your definition of cooking?


For me the goal is to convey an emotion through taste and seeking to explore all the nuances of the aromatic palette. This means combining atypical flavours, seeking the power of taste and the delicacy of the plates.


 


What is your favourite dish?


The Sunday chicken with tarragon my mother makes. This memory is related to the dish but also to a specific family moment.


 


What is your sweet temptation?


It would be chocolate because it is a fermented product and for me fermentation is everything. It's also associated with a strong childhood memory when we used to spread butter and chocolate on a toast.


 


Do you have a message for the Box of Chefs?


It was a real challenge to summarize my culinary universe in a box but I love challenges and this project is very inspiring.


TASTING TIPS
Make a refreshing iced tea with Hojicha Cubèbe tea.

INGREDIENTS
2 liters of water


20 g of hojicha cubèbe tea


80 g of sugar

PREPARATION
- Pour the tea and sugar into the water at room temperature. That way your tea will keep all its benefits, vitamins and minerals!


- Let it infuse for 1h minimum, 4h maximum, then enjoy.

FINISH
Pour the tea in a mug with ice cubes or crushed ice and enjoy a healthy and refreshing drink!


Our tip: If you do not drink it all, keep it refrigerated and consume it within 24 hours (green tea oxidizes quickly).
