He's French. He has a buttery triple-creme named after him. No surprise that this cheese-loving Francophile is inspired by Savarin. For Alexis Steinman, food is more than mere nourishment. It is a language that links us--an expression of love.  It embodies tradition and is a window into other worlds. Meals are more magical when shared. As that notable, white tome suggests, cooking is Joy.  Yum du Jour was born from Alexis' insatiable quest for deliciousness and her emphatic belief that each and every bite we take should delight us, from the simple al pastor taco to the sumptuous lamb shank. Let her obsession--er passion--be your gastronomic guide.
