About the book

In 1999 and 2000, I traveled with photographer and artist Axel Icard in the footsteps of acclaimed Chef Alain Ducasse. We voyaged across the United States, from the coast of Maine to Sitka in Alaska, from the mountains of Arizona to the coves of Key Largo to pay tribute to the stories of “the people who take the time and care to nurture their harvests.”

Harvesting Excellence was produced and published by Assouline to coincide with Alain Ducasse’s opening of ADNY at the Essex House, which will earn four stars with the New York Times and three with the first Michelin Guide in New York.
