That is what has made him a leader in the industry and Eleven Madison one of the best restaurants in the country." (Grant Achatz Chicago)

    BEST OF THE BEST HALL OF FAME 2019
    Thomas Keller, chef/proprieter of the French Laundry in the Napa Valley--"the most exciting place to eat in the United States," wrote Ruth Reichl in "The New York Times"--is a wizard, a purist, a man obsessed with getting it right. And this, his first cookbook, is every bit as satisfying as a French Laundry meal itself: a series of small, impeccable, highly refined, intensely focused courses. Most dazzling is how simple Keller's methods are: squeegeeing the moisture from the skin on fish so it sautees beautifully; poaching eggs in a deep pot of water for perfect shape; the initial steeping in the shell that makes cooking raw lobster out of the shell a cinch; using vinegar as a flavor enhancer; the repeated washing of bones for stock for the cleanest, clearest tastes. From innovative soup techniques, to the proper way to cook green vegetables, to secrets of great fish cookery, to the creation of breathtaking desserts; from beurre monte to foie gras au torchon, to a wild and thoroughly unexpected take on coffee and doughnuts, "The French Laundry Cookbook" captures, through recipes, essays, profiles, and extraordinary photography, one of America's great restaurants, its great chef, and the food that makes both unique. One hundred and fifty superlative recipes are exact recipes from the French Laundry kitchen--no shortcuts have been taken, no critical steps ignored, all have been thoroughly tested in home kitchens. If you can't get to the French Laundry, you can now re-create at home the very experience the Wine Spectator described as "as close to dining perfection as it gets."

    Thomas Keller, chef/proprieter of Napa Valley's French Laundry, is passionate about bistro cooking. He believes fervently that the real art of cooking lies in elevating to excellence the simplest ingredients; that bistro cooking embodies at once a culinary ethos of generosity, economy, and simplicity; that the techniques at its foundation are profound, and the recipes at its heart have a powerful ability to nourish and please.

    So enamored is he of this older, more casual type of cooking that he opened the restaurant Bouchon, right next door to the French Laundry, so he could satisfy a craving for a perfectly made quiche, or a gratinéed onion soup, or a simple but irresistible roasted chicken. Now Bouchon, the cookbook, embodies this cuisine in all its sublime simplicity.

    But let's begin at the real beginning. For Keller, great cooking is all about the virtue of process and attention to detail. Even in the humblest dish, the extra thought is evident, which is why this food tastes so amazing: The onions for the onion soup are caramelized for five hours; lamb cheeks are used for the navarin; basic but essential refinements every step of the way make for the cleanest flavors, the brightest vegetables, the perfect balance—whether of fat to acid for a vinaigrette, of egg to liquid for a custard, of salt to meat for a duck confit.

    Because versatility as a cook is achieved through learning foundations, Keller and Bouchon executive chef Jeff Cerciello illuminate all the key points of technique along the way: how a two-inch ring makes for a perfect quiche; how to recognize the right hazelnut brown for a brown butter sauce; how far to caramelize sugar for different uses.

Already a sensational world star, Chang produces a buzzing fusion of Korean/Asian and Western cuisine, creating a style of food which defies easy categorisation.

The vibrant, urban feel of the book is teamed perfectly with clear and insightful writing that is both witty and accessible. Backed by undeniably informed technique and a clearly passionate advocation of cutting-edge fusion cooking, Chang's "Momofuku" is a stunning, no-holds barred, debut. The epitome of no-holds barred fusion food, beloved by most foodies on the planet, lauded by the likes of Anthony Bourdain and Martha Stewart...the inimitable David Chang will be over in the UK to promote the book on publication.

    When David Chang opened his Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York in 2004 it was missing one thing - dessert. Dessert was just one of the many things that Chang didn't approve of! Dessert was for wimps (not the word he used!).
    Then he met Christina Tosi and realised that he was wrong - very wrong, but only because Tosi's take on dessert was so insanely brilliant, addictive and different. And so it came to pass that Tosi was producing amazing desserts for Chang's 2 star Michelin restaurant Momofuku Ko and rocking a nation with her extraordinary plates of sweet things.
    And then she asked Chang if he would back her in opening a Momofuku Milk Bar bakery, to be linked with the ever growing family of Momofukus, to produce amazing interpretations and creations of long loved recipes, based on childhood flavour memories and down-home classics. The Milk Bars were an instant hit and the recipes that came from them drew people from all over the USA and beyond to experience her unique, and often trademarked, creations.
    The recipes in Milk Bar are singular and without compare. And in a time when baking has found itself a new home in the hearts of the British public, this collection of recipes can only add to the passion. Momofuku Milk Bar reveals the recipes for the addictive cookies, pies, cakes, ice creams and cereal milk delights that have captivated a city and a nation. The recipes are all derived from ten mother recipes from which she works her legendary riffs - Crack Pie, Compost Cookie and Cereal Milk Ice Cream.

    From the acclaimed team behind Manhattan's three-Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park restaurant comes this deluxe cookbook showcasing the foods, ingredients, and culinary history of New York. After landing rave reviews for their transformation of Eleven Madison Park from a French brasserie into a fine dining restaurant, chef Daniel Humm and general manager Will Guidara decided to refashion Manhattan's ultimate destination restaurant into a showcase for New York's food artisans. Instead of looking abroad for inspiration, Humm and Guidara headed to their own backyards, exploring more than fifty farms in the greater New York area and diving into the city's rich culinary heritage as a cultural melting pot. In "I Love New York," Humm and Guidara present an in-depth look at the region's centuries-old farming traditions along with nearly 150 recipes that highlight its outstanding ingredients--from apples, celery root, and foie gras to nettles, pork, scallops, and venison. Included among these dishes designed explicitly for the home cook are reinterpretations of New York classics, like Oyster Pan Roast, Manhattan Clam Chowder, and the Bloody Mary. Lushly illustrated with photographs of the area's dramatic landscapes and the farmers who tend the land, this unique ode introduces the concept of New York regional cuisine as it celebrates the bounty of this exceptional state.
