When pastry chef François Perret left the world-famous Ritz in Paris to compete in a food truck festival in Los Angeles, he was pursuing the same mission: to surprise, to create and to make dreams come true. If food is about connection, passion and breaking down boundaries, what better challenge than to pack up and leave the well-equipped, Michelin-rated French kitchen for the cramped, mobile but unbeatably accessible food truck half a world away?

Part travel documentary, part companion guide, part fusion recipe book, this volume accompanies the Netflix series The Chef in a Truck. Bringing together both culinary worlds, it includes recipes from the high-end pastry realm using the most exclusive ingredients, as well as recipes inspired by encounters with local chefs and producers in California.

Follow Perret’s unique journey, recreate his recipes in your own kitchen and explore the places he visits in Paris and Los Angeles through his personal address book. A delicious adventure.
