A journey through space, time, and senses, this book--published on the occasion of AlUla's annual "Winter at Tantora" festival--offers a unique, synesthetic experience of traveling to a mythical land through flavors and taste. The chefs of the prestigious Parisian culinary arts school FERRANDI Paris celebrate local ingredients and cooking methods--marrying them with the finest French traditions and savoir faire--for an unprecedented confluence of culinary cultures. Specially created for this publication, 30 exclusive recipes for starters, main courses, desserts, and drinks are presented alongside lush shots of the finished dishes.
