Who should buy this book? Maybe other chefs, who want to copy of get inspiration. Maybe the travelling gourmet who want to know more about rising star chefs and where to eat. I give the book four stars only because a book like this isn't really essential to own and in a couple of years it will be dated. I guess it will serve very well as a time capsule of what was trendy in 2008.
It might not be quite accurate to call this a cookbook. Coco is a juried show of some of the finest young chefs, selected by some of the most innovative and storied chefs of our time. 100 chefs have been chosen by 10 masters. There is a 4 page spread on each which includes a biography and influences, a sample menu and shots of their restaurant, and recipes to prepare one meal. Unlike many restaurant cookbooks I have, none that I have seen so far is too complicated or exotic for the home chef.
It could also be viewed as something of a travel guide, or wish book. Would that it were possible to visit all of these restaurants. As one who hails from one of the culinary centers of the universe, now adrift mid-pacific for a good long time, it gives me view of what is going on around the world, places to look for and book in advance when I travel, and a taste of distant lands, and fresh flavors dreamed up by bright new minds.
When I bought this I was not quite sure if I would like it but had a back-up plan. My daughter has found her passion as a chef, having started down a completely different track. I thought that if I did not enjoy it, she surely would.Read more ›
