Get to know the foreign-born chefs who are transforming America’s culinary landscape and learn how to make their signature dishes in your own kitchen.
Today, some of the country’s most exciting chefs hail from distant shores and they’re infusing their restaurants’ menus with the flavors of their heritage. Featuring the recipes of forty top foreign-born chefs, this book presents dishes from luminaries including Dominique Crenn (France), Michael Solomonov (Israel), Marcus Samuelsson (Ethiopia/Sweden), Corey Lee (Korea), and Daniela Soto-Innes (Mexico).
Learn how to make Thai Dang’s shrimp with sweet onions and Vietnamese coriander; Emma Bengtsson’s salmon gravlax and lovage; and Miro Uskokovic’s Hungarian pancake torte. These chefs are running the kitchens of the country’s most exciting restaurants and each of them has a compelling story to tell, from tackling economic injustice to redefining restaurant culture. With mouthwatering photography and short contributions from America’s leading food writers, this sumptuous, global, and inspiring cookbook brings a world of flavor into home kitchens.
