About this title


42 renowned chefs open their home kitchens to share the easy but interesting menus they serve to family and friends. Cooking tips, ingredient information, and other tricks of the trade round out the meals, and introductions to each section, along with candid photographs, provide fascinating glimpses into the lives of some of the country's most admired culinary talents.

From Library Journal:

Here are two books that offer a tour of the American food scene today. Shore and Townsend are associate directors of Share Our Strength, a national hunger-relief organization with strong ties to the food community. For their book, they asked chefs across the country to contribute menus for meals they might cook at home rather than for their restaurant dishes. Some of the menus, such as "A Sunday Family Supper" from Michel Richard, readily qualify as "home food," while others are more high-flown; Jean-Louis Palladin no doubt considers his seaweed and lobster salad with a ginger emulsion, followed by lamb and cardamom-flavored grits, to be comfort food. No matter; it's fun to see what all these chefs are up to (and the proceeds go to Share Our Strength). For most collections. The TriBeCa Cookbook has a smaller roster, with two menus each from a dozen chefs in New York City's booming TriBeCa neighborhood; Montrachet and Chanterelle are among the celebrated restaurants featured (the four-star Bouley is conspicuous by its absence). Dishes range from El Teddy's Squash and Ancho Chile Soup to Arqua's Vitello Tonnato to the Tribeca Grill's Warm Cashew Financier. Recommended for area libraries and others with "foodies" among their patrons.
