Gjelina - The new way to cook
Travis Lett's new American cuisine: Gjelina in Venice Beach is Los Angeles's most talked-about restaurant, lauded by critics from London to New York to San Francisco and beloved by stars, locals, and out-of-towners alike for its seductive simplicity and eclectic Cal-Med menu created by talented chef Travis Lett.
Gjelina: Cooking from Venice, California is a standout cookbook featuring 125 of the rustic and utterly delicious salads, toasts, pizzas, vegetable and grain dishes, pastas, fish and meat mains, and desserts that have had fans clamoring for a table at Gjelina since the restaurant burst onto the scene in 2008.
Gjelina evokes the Southern California lifestyle: More than 150 color photographs from acclaimed photographer Michael Graydon and stylist Nikole Herriott, plus a tactile, artisanal package, evoke the vibe of Venice Beach and the Gjelina (the G's silent) aesthetic, and showcase the beautiful plated food of Lett's ingredient-based, vegetable-centric cooking.
Much like Jerusalem Cookbook, Plenty Cookbook, and the Ottolenghi Cookbook, Gjelina is the cookbook for the way we want to eat now.
