Overview

One demanding New Jersey chef once tied his cooks to the stove by their apron strings. Another was such a finicky eater as a child, he refused to allow his cereal to touch his milk. One was kissed by Fidel Castro, another played onstage with Todd Rundgren. Celebrity Chefs of New Jersey peeks into the kitchens and the lives of some of the most famous chefs in the Garden State, where foodies and other gourmands will discover passions, kitchen secrets, life lessons, and signature recipes.

Editorial Reviews

There were times in the not too distant past when Manhattan foodies sniffed at the mere mention of New Jersey cuisine. Those times have changed. To be sure, the ascent of Garden State chefs came at a price: As Teresa Politano notes in this spicy concoction, at least one outstanding Jersey chef once apron-tied his cooks to the stove to guarantee their attention. Politano's Celebrity Chefs of New Jersey is replete with entertaining stories, cooking secrets, and, not least, signature recipes redesigned for home cooks. An apt gift for local gourmands.
