Go behind the scenes and into the world of Anne Willan—the woman who demystified classic French culinary technique—in her new memoir, “One Soufflé at a Time.” Known for her legendary La Varenne Cooking School, Willan provided cheerful, no-nonsense instruction to chefs, food writers, and home cooks, and carried a belief that anyone could learn to truss a chicken, make a bernaise, or loft a soufflé. 

Follow along as Anne shares her story, and learn how an English girl from Yorkshire uncovered her passion for cooking, and made her way to France, and broke into what was once a male-dominated world of French cuisine. Discover stories of the food-world greats who influenced her along the way, including Julia Child, James Beard, Simone Beck, and walk away with 50 of Anne’s favorite recipes from Coquille St. Jacques to Chocolate Snowball.

Be the Zester Daily fan to win one of 10 copies of the book plus a 10-inch stainless steel French whisk from Surfas!
