The most satisfying food pairing since meat and potatoes, wine and cheese, or shrimp and grits can make its way to your table with the new cookbook Energy Cuisine: Two Chefs. Four Countries. One Extraordinary Friendship. Chefs David Denis of Le Mistral and Jani Lehtinen of Pori, Finland, cross their cultural roots and share their culinary successes in this gastronomic guide featuring over 100 recipes.
Winning the tastebuds of executives within their respective Energy Corridors, the two chefs support the stomachs of the individuals within the oil and gas industry. It was exactly these executives who decided that David must eat at Jani’s restaurant and Jani at David’s. Energy Cuisine translates their journeys across the globe, infusing the people, places, and ingredients that truly make their dishes spectacular.
Returning to the cuisine of his childhood spent in France, Chef David Denis has found that even restaurant success is bigger in Texas. His French restaurant, Le Mistral, was named the Best Food In Houston 2010 by Zagat Survey. Meanwhile, Chef Jani Lehtinen remembers the warm and rich cuisine of his numerous trips to Italy and serves up hearty Italian masterpieces at his acclaimed restaurant, Bucco, in Finland. Sharing a language of food, David and Jani, along with veteran author John DeMers and professional photographer Shannon O’Hara, create this book as a testament to the power of food to energize people, transporting both authors and readers to Finland, Provence, and Shiner, TX.
