In a two-part series, you will find 2 of the recipes tested in judging the book. If you read French and want to know more, click on FR above. Otherwise enjoy the food.
Giovanni Apollo is one of 80 top chefs who participated in my latest cookbook, À la bonne franquette. He also takes part in my next book project, which is hush-hush for now.

From the book, I cooked the following dishes, so click through for the recipes:
