Overview

From the acclaimed team behind Manhattan's three-Michelin-starred Elven Madison Park restaurant comes this deluxe cookbook showcasing the foods, ingredients, and culinary history of New York.

After landing rave reviews for their transformation of Eleven Madison Park from a French brasserie into a fine dining restaurant, chef Daniel Humm and general manager Will Guidara decided to refashion their Manhattan restaurant into a showcase for New York’s food artisans. Instead of looking abroad for inspiration, Humm and Guidara headed to their own backyards, exploring more than fifty farms in the greater New York area and diving into the city’s rich culinary heritage as a cultural melting pot.

In I Love New York, Humm and Guidara present an in-depth look at the region’s centuries-old farming traditions along with nearly 150 recipes that highlight its outstanding ingredients—from apples, celery root, and foie gras to nettles, pork, scallops, and venison. Included among these dishes designed explicitly for the home cook are reinterpretations of New York classics, like Oyster Pan Roast, Manhattan Clam Chowder, and the Bloody Mary. Lushly illustrated with photographs of the area’s dramatic landscapes and the farmers who tend the land, this unique ode introduces the concept of New York regional cuisine as it celebrates the bounty of this exceptional state.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

When chef Daniel Humm and general manager Will Guidara set out to transform their Eleven Madison Park restaurant from a signature French brasserie into something better, they didn't settle on a Parisian or Asian fusion model. Instead, they searched dozens of New York farmlands and researched the rich culinary history of the Big Apple. What they discovered was an abundance that not even they imagined. Thus, their I Love NY is a celebration of both their restaurant and the region's rich dining and eating traditions. Even those not inclined to salivate over local history will find the Oyster Pan Roast and Manhattan Clam Chowder remarkably persuasive. Editor's recommendation. (P.S. Eleven Madison Park has garnered six James Beard Awards and a four star rating from The New York Times.)

The New York Times Book Review - William Grimes
At Eleven Madison Park, Humm and Guidara have recast the menu to showcase local farmers and growers, and their cookbook is, in a way, the annotated documentation of their new approach, with recipes geared down for the home cook—although the foie gras torchon with maple syrup and apples certainly tests the amateur. For the most part, though, simplicity and humility are the reigning virtues.
Publishers Weekly
02/04/2013
Humm and Guidara (Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook), chef and partners at renowned New York City restaurant Eleven Madison Park, were inspired to write their new book by asking the question, “What is New York Cuisine?” The pair set out to put together “a collection of recipes, but also a collection of ingredients that comprise them, and of the incredible men and women who work tirelessly to make existence a reality.” Humm selected 55 local ingredients, then drove around New York exploring farms (all, except for one, within 150 miles of N.Y.C.) and meeting the farmers responsible for producing these ingredients. The authors put an emphasis on simplicity; they explain that these dishes, which include interpretations of New York classics, and cover everything from entrees to drinks to desserts, “are meant to be cooked at home.” There are beautiful photographs of the food and the farmers themselves. Each short chapter highlights a specific farm or producer, as well as the foods it’s known for. Rosenkrans Farms in Seneca Falls is famous for its beef, and the section on the farm is followed by recipes for beef tartare and bone marrow, shallots, and anchovies. A recipe for farro salad with yogurt, cucumber, and melon accompanies the story of Cayuga Pure Organics in the Fingerlakes region, which produces grains. Other showcased products include chocolate, foie gras, honey, lobster, plums, potatoes, scallops, sheep’s milk cheese, tomatoes, and venison. I Love New York is a delightful cookbook and culinary guide. (Mar.)
From the Publisher
As an observer of the New York food scene for over fifty years, I have witnessed (and enjoyed) the constantly evolving landscape of this city’s cuisine. Never has a focus on New York, though, been more exciting than right now as Daniel Humm and his contemporaries skillfully interpret local ingredients and legendary classics. It should be no surprise that this book is as beautiful as it is enjoyable, and as delectable as it is inspiring, given the history of the authors in their restaurants. Their passion for New York and their loyalty to local suppliers of superb ingredients shows throughout the pages, as does the respect and inspiration Daniel Humm exhibits in everything he serves. The result of all of this is a wonderful cookbook full of subtly intriguing recipes that are well within the abilities of any halfway experienced home cook.

Introduction
A Moment in New York Cuisine
 
We were drinking Manhattans in a Paris hotel bar when Daniel first told me that he wanted to write a book about New York cuisine. It was a statement prompted by an ongoing conversation the two of us had been having, reflecting on trips we had taken over the past couple of years, to Lyon, Paris, Tokyo, Piedmont, discussing how in each of these places, there is a collective pride in place—each city’s cuisine a celebration of its home.

Yet in New York City, one of the greatest dining cities in the world, it has never been this way. Here, for the most part, our cuisine has always had a sense of place somewhere else in the world. Our city, so often referred to as a melting pot, is brimming with virtually every culture and tradition. As a result, you can get almost everything here simply by going to an ethnic neighborhood—that microcosm of a foreign country—or to a local distributor. It’s one of the coolest things about living in New York, but it can also be our downfall. Too often, because everything is available all the time, we forget to look at what’s growing in our backyard. In spite of the fact that New York is one of the greatest agricultural regions in the world, we have never fully developed our own identity.

So we decided to write this book—to play our part in the conversation to define “What is New York Cuisine?” and to join the growing local movement that has begun to take shape around us.

We acknowledged early on that a local cuisine begins with its local ingredients. This book, then, we realized, had to be not only a collection of recipes but also a collection of the ingredients that comprise them and of the incredible men and women who work tirelessly to make their existence a reality. There was a lot we needed to learn.
So Daniel and his team spent weeks driving around New York, visiting countless farmers who cultivate amazing ingredients, learning about their land and their crops, tasting their products. What he found along the way was that New York is full of lush farmland and dedicated farmers who are producing some extraordinary things. We found that their stories are compelling, their products outstanding, and their commitment to preserving the New York agricultural tradition exemplary. He chose to highlight the farms and ingredients that he had come to respect the most on his travels throughout the state. The more he learned about these farms and their farmers, the more we became interested in New York’s culinary trajectory throughout the ages. 

This took us beyond the ingredients, to the historical narratives, and more research—and we quickly discovered that although our city’s culinary identity is not quite intact, there are some wonderfully unique traditions that have existed over the years. We became obsessed with egg creams and soda fountains and Delmonico steak. We learned about their origins and their evolutions, about the legends that surrounded them and the people who invented them. An entire genre of food that was classically New York—smoked fish, potato chips, the oyster pan roast—all these dishes speak to this city’s history not only as America’s immigrant melting pot but also as a rich agricultural center. We decided to include these recipes and stories as well, because they had their cultural roots here in New York, but, perhaps even more so, because they had their agricultural roots here, too.

And so it was there in that Paris hotel bar sipping on that quintessential New York cocktail, reflecting on our relationship with New York and our budding fascination with it, that we decided to write this book. But it was through the process of writing it that we learned to fully understand the magnificence of our hometown—not only because of its lush farmland and the people that cultivate it, but also because its centuries-old culinary narrative has left an indelibl­­e imprint on American history. And we realized, in the humblest of terms, just as generations of immigrants and entrepreneurs had before us, that we love New York.
