Inspiring, warm and comforting - with modern classic recipes,
This review is from: Secrets of the Best Chefs: Recipes, Techniques, and Tricks from America's Greatest Cooks (Hardcover)
I am so impressed by Adam Roberts. He is a food writer, television personality, and cook with a fine-living vision - and a brilliant way with words. From page one, the reader is treated to an inside look into his culinary mind -- inquisitive, a bit daring, and always inspired by cooking visionaries and trendsetters. What makes this book so wonderful is that Adam doesn't only cook with superstars we all know - he places equal value on the experiences of home cooks and artisan chefs who can inspire us all.
In Secrets of the Best Chefs, Adam has captured a bit of the awe we all might experience when cooking at the elbows of our nation's greatest chefs, yet even so, we understand his passion for making foods at home that people will love to eat again and again. From his own kitchen, Adam recreates the signature dishes of his mentor chefs. With crisp language and easy to comprehend recipe instructions, he makes even complex dishes seem manageable by the average home cook. Secrets of the Best Chefs also shares helpful tips and observations to make kitchen time more streamlined and efficient.
I'm a believer in his process. And just to prove my point, tonight I'm making his version of Nancy Silverton's Prosciutto San Daniele with Warren Pear and Pomegranate Seeds. For myself. And I'll be loving every bite as I'm reading to pick out the next recipe to cook and enjoy.
