Traditionally, football fans have a lot of ways to honour their favourite player or club. From t-shirts to video games, from scarves to coffee mugs, from documentaries to magazines. But one thing they didn’t have until just now were cookbooks. At first, they seem to have nothing in common with football and in most cases, that’s true. But there now is one exception, called À table avec le Paris Saint-Germain. What it is, you ask? A cookbook made by a Michelin starred chef, a nutritionist and ten players of the French football club Paris Saint-Germain.
If you’ve always wondered what top athletes such as the players of PSG like to eat, this is your chance. The book À table avec le Paris Saint-Germain is scheduled to be released on November 9th and will comprise no less than seventy recipes, inspired by the favourite dishes of ten of PSG’s players. The recipes have been adapted by the Michelin starred chef David Toutain in collaboration with the team’s nutritionist Juan José Morillas.
For the consumer, other than the sporty type and the footballer, there will always be something to learn about a recipe in this book.David Toutain, the Michelin Starred Chef
Star worthy recipes at an affordable price
All recipes have two things in common: they’re fairly affordable to cook at home and they are healthy (or as healthy as possible). Gianluigi Donnarumma, Vitinha, Ousmane Dembélé, Marquinhos, Achraf Hakimi, Kylian Mbappé, Presnel Kimpembe, Warren Zaïre-Emery, Danilo Pereira and Kang-in Lee are the ten players that have contributed to the book.
“All players present seven of their favourite recipes, such as the feijoada à la Marquinhos, the childhood veggie couscous as remembered by Achraf Hakimi and the famous crêpes à la Presnel Kimpembe” revealed Les Editions Amphora.
As of November 9th, À table avec le Paris Saint-Germain will be available in French bookshops for 24,95€.
