Editorial Reviews

Review

"Top 20 Cookbook in 2015" —Amazon

"A lavishly illustrated celebration of the three-Michelin-starred San Francisco restaurant and its Korean-American chef." —The New York Times

"This sumptuous new book from San Francisco superstar chef Corey Lee is filled with much more than just dinner ideas." —Sacramento Bee

"This is the first book on San Francisco's three-Michelin starred restaurant Benu and Lee, its chef, who Momofuku's David Chang calls "one of the best chefs on Earth." Chang penned one of the forwards to the book; the other was written by Lee's mentor, Thomas Keller, who Lee worked for at The French Laundry for eight years." —Yahoo Food

"The food itself, which like everything else at Benu (and inside Benu, his cookbook, out this month from Phaidon), is more or less a master class in stripped-down elegance." —Saveur

"One of the most anticipated cookbooks of the year [...] The photography is stunning." —VanityFair.com

"It is not often to experience pure emotional romance and beauty in a cookbook like Benu. The dedication to it's balanced creation is apparent across words, design and imagery." —Dine x Design

"Benu is one of the country's most extraordinary - and enlightening - dining destinations." —Eater

About the Author

Korean‐born, American‐raised Corey Lee (b. 1977) is the head chef of Benu, one of San Francisco’s most celebrated restaurants, and one of only a handful to receive three Michelin stars and a four‐star review from The San Francisco Chronicle. Lee brings his background to bear on the food at Benu, creating an eclectic, creative Asian‐inspired American cuisine that explores identity, culture, and belonging. Having worked at some of the most acclaimed restaurants in England, France and the United States, including Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry, Lee’s own restaurant has been tipped as the next big American restaurant by both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

An exquisite book.....beautifully thought out and photographed plates....no recipes...this is a book to feast the eyes not the family.....to look at and imagine not any recipes...but rather menu plans and tables to view....from this extraordinary and elegant restaurant....for the coffee table...not the kitchen counter.

I had the pleasure of Corey Lee speaking at my culinary school graduation and then followed by a meal at his restaurant Benu. It was a life changing meal and loved all the Chinese flavors he riffs off of. The book features rich high definition photographs of Chef Lee's beautifully plated food and precise recipe instructions. This book is definitely a must have for all culinary book collectors!

The book is beautiful, photography is mouthwatering, but having said that the recipes in the book are not anything you would cook in a home setting. Requires number of not easy to find ingredients and dishes are not user friendly to make. Unless you are a full-time cheff the book is not more than just inspiration for a reader.
