The vocation of chef is a noble one. It involves providing for others the fuel essential to life in a way that celebrates the senses and enlivens the spirit. All of the chefs who have contributed to this book are artisans of their vocation. Their culinary delights are best appreciated, however, when teamed with the art of a winemaker." --Park B. Smith, Veritas restaurant
