British Chef Emily Roux Features in Lexus’s Second Culinary Perspectives Cookbook

16 October 2020

Lexus has launched the second volume of its global digital cookbook, Culinary Perspectives, put together by food editor and writer, Joshua David Stein.

Ten partner chefs share enticing dishes that have been enjoyed at recent Lexus events around the world.  The recipes can be mastered by novice chefs or expert culinary architects, in their own kitchens.

British chef Emily Roux, of the Caractere restaurant in Notting Hill, is featured alongside nine other global culinary craftsmen, sharing her recipe for a chocolate tart.

The foreword is by American Chef Nyesha J. Arrington, who advocates using farm-fresh, local, and responsibly sourced ingredients, and celebrates amazing meals and the hospitality, or omotenashi, which is central to the Lexus brand.

Culinary Perspectives enables Lexus to connect with our audience on a topic of deep personal interest to them. We hope our audience will embrace this opportunity to explore their own epicurean artisanship,” said Brian Bolain, General Manager, Lexus International.
