The book features charming line drawings and mouthwatering food photography by one of France's most acclaimed food photographers. Sidebars and asides containing useful snippets of Ducasse's experience and advice are peppered throughout.
With over 190 simple yet sublime dishes, Ducasse highlights a wide range of flavor combinations in which vegetables, fruits, and grains take pride of place, while animal protein is used sparingly for flavor. Ducasse casts aside preconceived notions of French food to reveal its essence-seasonal produce, fresh flavors, and hearty, healthy dishes meant to be shared with friends and family.

"Health-minded cookbooks can have a whiff of self-righteousness-or be just plain bland. And those penned by Michelin-star-rated chefs can prove intimidating. Somehow, Alain Ducasse's Nature: Simple, Healthy and Good is neither. Published first in France, the gorgeous book-thanks in part to adorable sketches by Christine Roussey-actually made us hungry." ~Wall Street Journal
"Skillfully illustrated by Christine Roussey, the book follows the bespectacled Ducasse, his nutritionist cowriter Paule Neyrat, and Plaza Athenee head chef Christophe Saintagne as they take a conversational tour through an elaborate vegetable patch. And though bucolic, Nature never lets go of Ducasse's signature finesse, bringing you inspired takes on produce, such as vegetables a la barigoule with vanilla." ~Vogue
"In his new book Nature: Simple, Healthy and Good, inspired by a series he's published in French, Ducasse's recipes are built on ingredients that are both nutritional and flavor powerhouses: whole grains, seafood, and nutrient-dense vegetables. If any chef can make healthy dishes taste divine, it's Ducasse." ~Epicurious.com
