Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Washington, DC Chef's Table offers a uniquely engaging tour of the Capital City's world-class restaurant scene. As much a storybook as it is a cookbook, Chef's Table provides readers with history and fun facts about the region's favorite dining rooms and the personalities behind them. This background, paired with stunning original photography, provides a frame of reference to deepen the dozens of mouthwatering, easy-to-follow recipes culled from the city's top kitchens. You don't have to be a celebrity chef to wow dinner guests with 4-star culinary creations or impress them with an insider's knowledge of beltway dining. This gorgeous and engaging book has it––and is, quite simply, an indispensable addition to any DC food lover's library." —Josh Dinar, Founder and Publisher of DiningOut magazines and www.diningout.com"When I first got to Washington, D.C. for grad school a decade ago, I didn't think much of the food this town had to offer. Now new restaurants pop up by the day, culinary trends emerge and evolve, and residents and visitors alike talk about a culinary renaissance in the nation's capital. Washington, D.C. Chef's Table doesn't only find some of the city's best chefs—both traditional and cutting edge—but it tells you their story and lets you in on the secrets of some of their tastiest recipes. You can sample the city's best food—and then cook it yourself." ––Martin Andres Austermuhle, Editor-in-Chief, DCist.com"Washington holds more secrets and spies than perhaps any other city in the world. And no secrets are held more closely than those of the city's chefs. So a big kudos to Beth Kanter and her artful photographer Emily Goodstein for digging up these recipe secrets and revealing them to us in this delightfully written and illustrated treasure of a book." ––Peter Earnest, Founding Executive Director, International Spy Museum"The incredible recipes from DC's top chefs are reason enough to own this book, but for food lovers, it's also an invaluable guide to the city's best places to eat, from food trucks to fine dining. The recipes include some of my all-time favorite restaurant dishes, which I'll now be recreating at home." — Amanda McClements, food writer and owner of Salt & Sundry"The Washington DC Chef's Table does an excellent job of capturing the stories of some of DC's most well-known chefs. Beth Kanter artfully weaves in their memories and anecdotes into the recipes, giving the reader a better sense of the people behind the food. Washingtonians will be proud of our city's culinary talent and proud to have this cookbook on their bookshelves." —Marissa Bialecki, Food writer and editor for WeLoveDC.com
