I first got introduced to Pierre Gagnaire’s cuisine when I worked at Sketch and ever since then have always wanted to go to what he calls ‘ma coeur’ at Rue Balzac, Paris. He’s also probably one of the only chefs to have published a cookbook with no recipes, just surreal works of art that just happen to be edible. 8 years later I finally made the call! They only accept reservations 1 month in advance so I was there, on the dot, looking up the website, calling the number and booking the table.
