Overview

"

The award-winning food photographer and founder of the cult favorite Fool magazine invites you to pull up a chair and join the intimate family meals at some of the world’s finest restaurants, including Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Chez Panisse, Roberta’s, wd—50, Attica, Mugaritz, Maison Pic, Noma, Osteria Francescana, St. John, and The French Laundry.

Eating with the Chefs features 200 photographs by Pers-Anders Jorgensen and more than 50 home cooking recipes from restaurants handpicked for their unique staff meal traditions.

The book includes appetizers and main dishes, as well as desserts. Learn to make Apple Compote with Apple Streusel Topping from The French Laundry, Brownies from Noma, the wd—50 Big Mac, Emmer Wheat Foccacia from Stone Barns, and Summer Vegetable Soup with Pesto from Chez Panisse. More family—style than fine dining, these dishes utilize simple ingredients and can be easily adapted for two people, a small group, or a larger party.

The book is filled with Jorgensen’s evocative photos that showcase not only the food, but candid, behind—the—scenes moments, making this as much a visual treat as it is a practical cookbook."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
""

Family—style staff meals, so often even more cozily enticing than what’s on the actual menu, are the focus of the Fool magazine editor and photographer’s Eating with the Chefs – worth the price alone just for Noma’s brownie recipe." – Vogue"

From the rustic to the refined, the book provides a visually stunning narrative about the inner workings of restaurants." – DuJour"

Shot by award-winning Swedish photographer Pers-Anders Jorgensen, Eating with the Chefs is. . . for those who dream of sharing meals with their favorite restaurateurs." – Fine Dining Lovers"

Great—tasting, simple meals to fuel a hard day’s work. . .If you’ve grown cynical about what relation fine dining has to real food, here it is. If you need no convincing, this is a straightforward treat." – The Guardian (UK)"

A wondrous piece of pondering ideas and beauty." – Edge NY"

Swedish photographer Jorgensen is coeditor in chief of Fool (fool.se), which won Best Food Magazine at the 2013 Gourmand Cookbook Awards. In this study of the family meal (one which is prepared and consumed by restaurant staff, not diners), he captures chefs from 18 of the world's best restaurants, including French Laundry, Maison Pic, Noma, and Mugaritz. He renders each staff meal in matte portraits, still lifes, and montages, among which are sandwiched profiles and recipes. The recipe pages—which are more than an inch narrower than the photo pages—are cumbersome, with ingredients printed near the bottom margin in a miniscule font. VERDICT With some of the finest photographs of any cookbook on this subject, this title will find a home in professional and restaurant collections. Home cooks who'd like to prepare what chefs eat may prefer Michael Romano and Karen Stabiner's The Family Table or Christine Carroll and Jody Eddy's Come In, We're Closed.
