Comme un chef

Comme un chef is a 216 page graphic novel by Aurélia Aurita that will be published by Casterman at January 17, 2018. The book is about the autobiographical experiences of Benoît Peeters in cooking, when he was a student 1).

Entre 18 et 25 ans, la cuisine a tenu une place immense dans la vie de Benoît Peeters. Après un repas chez les Frères Troisgros à Roanne, alors le restaurant le plus célèbre de France, le jeune homme apprend la cuisine avec passion, en autodidacte. Quand il laisse tomber la préparation du concours de Normale Sup et que ses parents lui coupent les vivres, Benoît tente de devenir cuisinier à domicile ! Entre deux articles et un job dans une librairie, il s’essaie aux recettes les plus subtiles… et se confronte à la rudesse du réel.

The preface is written by Pierre Gagnaire.

In a Japanse interview with Benoît Peeters of October 2017 the first pages were published 2).
