Overview

Explore the connection between culinary inspiration and one of the world's oldest forms of rebel art!

From James Beard Award winners, Top Chef competitors, and Food Network stars to prep cooks, interns, and sous chefs, few other people are more closely associated with tattoos than chefs. Professional kitchens have traditionally been an unseen haven for many of society's misfits, but recently they have been transformed into stages as the world's obsession with great food and great chefs continues to grow. Knuckle tattoos that once excluded a person from many careers have become a badge of honor and the tattoos are now a testament to their commitment to their craft.

Eat Ink goes beyond their Michelin stars and chef's coats to explore what lies beneath: seasoned cooks who love preparing original plates and wear their tattoos proudly as they share the experiences that led them to the kitchen. Inside this cookbook, you'll discover a range of recipes as diverse as the chefs themselves, as well as personal details about the chef's remarkable journeys through the kitchen (and the tattoo parlor). From Lish Steiling's Roasted Parsnip and Kale Salad to Rick Tramonto's Gemelli with Chicken and Spring Herb Sauce to Duff Goldman's Pineapple Hummingbird Cake, each revealing profile offers a never-before-seen peek behind the kitchen door and into the mind of a chef.

Complete with hundreds of full-color photographs and 60 delicious recipes from today's top chefs, Eat Ink invites you into their kitchens to sample some of world's best plates.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A glance through makes it clear that it's easy enough to jump from admiring the chefs' bodywork art to their edible art. Thank goodness - now you know exactly what to get the tattoo lover/foodie in your life." - Delish.com

"Chefs don't just want to show off their culinary know-how, they want to show off their tats, as this lively, original book illustrates. It's not just about tattoos, but the life journeys of 60 chefs around the country." - The Star-Ledger (Top Food Books of 2013)

"Meditations on the link between tattoos and chefs' kitchen scars, a thoughtful eye towards lesser-known names...as well a plenty of women represented. There are also recipes alongside the tattoo talk. Keep an eye out for chefs like Marc Forgione, Gabriel Rucker, Mike Isabella, Rick Tramonto, Seamus Mullen, Andy Ricker, Dominique Crenn, and more." - Eater.com

"The recipes, most of which are friendly toward home cooks, are relatively basic and easy to follow, but the real reason to stuff this book into someone's stocking is the ink photography, which is just plain fun to peruse. And just looking at all that intricate ink makes me want one more thing for Christmas: a tattoo." - Westword

"To read Eat Ink is to read about passion. The authors aim to illuminate the connection between the tattoo aesthetic, the creation of food, and the drive to succeed. There's something in it for anyone interested in any of those." - InStash

"Eat Ink is something of a migratory book. It might live on your coffee table.... Then...you'll be balancing it on one knee while you're copying down ingredients you'll need to hunt down during a post-work market sojourn. The process has a way of repeating itself, and, at the moment, shows no sign of relenting." - DailyXY.com

"An interesting read about 60 tattooed chefs and their personal journey into the kitchen and tattoo parlor. The stories are as diverse as the recipes. The common link is that all the chefs love to cook and wear their tattoos with pride." - Worcester Telegram & Gazette

"The cookbook is both beautiful and edgy....The photos truly capture the chefs' energy and personality...each story is personal and compelling.... The whole package does capture the essence of each chef, from where they started, to where they're heading, and for many, their plans for the next tat." - PlateOnline
