Yannick Alléno wishes to pay tribute to the Ile de France, its produce and those who enhance it, with his book "Le Terroir Parisien". The chef has rediscovered the wealth of "his" land and thus helped bring to light the local producers.
From this research, Yannick Alléno takes the forgotten Parisian recipes and reinterprets them, showing a perpetual creation.
