Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This lavishly illustrated volume is a who's who survey of top contemporary cooks, selected by ten of the world's best chefs (including Mario Batali, Alain Ducasse, and Alice Waters). Selection is based on the food served, the way that the chefs run their kitchen, and their contribution to gastronomy. Each entry includes a biography, sample menu, recipes, and photos. Coming from more than 20 countries, the chefs chosen include such rising culinary stars as David Chang and Allison Vines-Rushing. While the high price may deter small and medium-sized libraries, this will be essential for chefs and foodies in libraries that can afford it.
