A Place at the Table officially launches today! Produced by the Vilcek Foundation and published by Prestel, the cookbook features more than 70 dishes created by 40 award-winning immigrant chefs, including 2019 Vilcek Prizewinners Marcus Samuelsson, Nite Yun, and Fabián von Hauske Valtierra. Other contributors include Mexican-born Daniela Soto-Innes, who was recently named “World’s Best Female Chef” by World’s 50 Best, Serbian-born pastry chef Miroslav Uskokovic of New York’s Gramercy Tavern, and 2019 James Beard Award recipient Ann Kim.
Edited by Rick Kinsel and Gabrielle Langholtz, A Place at the Table not only highlights the chefs’ tantalizing recipes, but also includes stories about their personal journeys. With a foreword and introduction written by celebrity food expert Padma Lakshmi and Vilcek Prizewinner José Andrés, respectively, the cookbook serves as a celebration of immigrant contributions to America’s palates.
