Cazes and Rocha were present on the opening day of the fair to sign copies of the 239-page book entitled Lynch Bages & Co. a family, a wine and 52 recipes.
The book, devised by Kinou Cazes-Hachemian and her father Jean-Charles, is part family memoire and part gourmet recipe book, drawing on the history of the family, the chateau and the region and using food memories of family members to create a collection of international recipes.
Of the 52 recipes featured in the book, half were created especially for this project by Rocha drawing on his haut-cuisine expertise and half were adaptations of some of the family’s favourite dishes with an emphasis on home-cooked ease.
Each recipe is also accompanied by a personal introduction written by Cazes.
Speaking to Decanter.com at the signing, Cazes said: ‘This is exactly what I’ve wanted to do for a long time.
‘This book illustrates the story of Bordeaux, the story of Lynch Bages, the story of my family and 52 recipes.’
Lynch Bages & Co will be available in French and English, translated by Jane Anson, with a retail price of €49.50.
