MOSCOW: A top French chef whose recipe book went missing while he gave a masterclass in Russia has been reunited with the precious journal after a woman found it in a local park, the news agency Interfax reported Friday.
The cookbook belonging to two-star Michelin chef Thierry Drapeau, in which he had written 20 years of recipes, disappeared as he gave a class in Yekaterinburg, the largest city in Russia’s Urals region.
The local woman who found the book received a 10,000 euro ($ 13,000) reward from the restaurateur in Yekaterinburg who hosted Drapeau, Interfax said. “Thanks so much for your help.
I have fallen in love with Yekaterinburg, a town where the people are good and ready to help others who are in a tight spot,” Drapeau was quoted as saying by the agency. It was not clear how the book ended up in the park.
