DESIRE: Chronicle of Sergio Herman's last year Oud Sluis, a reissue in pocket format. Desire. Reflections of a top chef describes the last year of chef Sergio Herman at the now closed restaurant Oud Sluis.
This collection is a reissue of the stories that were previously included in DESIRE, the two-part period document that appeared in a very limited edition in May 2014 and sold out in no time. With this new, simplified edition, the world of Sergio Herman is accessible to a wider audience.
Why did Sergio Herman stop his three-star restaurant Oud Sluis in Sluis in Zeeland? Has his worldwide success been worth all the sacrifices? And why did he serve pigeon as his final main course? Dutch journalist Mara Grimm closely followed Sergio Herman for a year and interviewed him day and night to get answers to these and countless other questions. This resulted in unique conversations about Sergio's dreams, his apprenticeship and the pitfalls of the chef's profession.
Sergio talks full of emotion about his depression, about being stoned from fatigue, about dancing behind the stove, about the addiction of creating and the illusion of perfection. In this reissue you will also find 7 recipes by Sergio Herman and atmospheric images of 'the last dinner'.
About Mara Grimm Mara Grimm (1979) is a freelance culinary journalist. She makes books with and for restaurants and writes for various Dutch magazines. Her collaboration with Minestrone and Sergio Herman began in 2012 with the publication of the Pure C cookbook.
Mara Grimm: 'Sergio Herman is perhaps the most influential chef the Benelux has ever known. I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to interview him regularly over the past 10 years. In my opinion, DESIRE is the crowning glory of that series of interviews.'
