Editorial Reviews

Review

“Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be an original idea for a cookbook left to invent, here is The Way We Ate: 100 Chefs Celebrate a Century at the American Table. It has the charm of old menus and vintage recipe collections. You can cook by it, stir your cocktail or just be amused by what great chef or cookbook writer was assigned what year to memorialize and what they wrote.” (Gael Greene Insatiable Critic)

This tome is a collection of culinary anthropology unlike others. The idea is thoughtful and the delivery is perfect. What a refreshingly new approach to cooking, drinking and entertaining! I just wish I had thought of it.

Magnificently styled, photographed, curated and conceived - this creative, collaborative journey of chefs and visual artists offers multiple platforms of engaging information and inspiration. Every page a marvel.

This book was my go-to gift this holiday season - it's fun, sophisticated, and a wonderful tour through history and cuisine even if you don't cook. Great concept, brilliant execution.
