"The amuse-bouche is the best way for a great chef to express his big ideas in small bites."
--JEAN-GEORGES VONGERICHTEN, Jean-Georges
"This book captures the whimsical and yet deeply satisfying soul of Rick Tramonto's complex food art, and yet makes it real for the ambitious home cook. Although the book is conceptually like James Joyce's Ulysses, on my palate the tastes are more like Tom Robbins's Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. I love both sides of the coin."
--MARIO BATALI, Babbo
“Rick Tramonto is one of America’s most creative chefs at work today. The tiny tastes Rick teaches us to prepare will light up any table with the spark that every great dinner party needs. This book will help any cook to unleash his or her imagination and transform any meal into an experience. These amuse-bouche stimulate not only the palate, but the conversation as well.”
