Publisher Comments:

Jean-Christophe Novelli is one of London's most-celebrated new Michelin-starred chefs, renowned for his striking combinations of flavors and artisitc presentations. But at the heart of many of his signature dishes are easy and accessible recipes perfectly suited to the home cook. In his restaurant kitchens Jean-Christophe adapts and combines these core recipes in a varietyof innovative ways suivant son humeur--according to his mood--adding an unusual vegetable here, a highly flavored oil or an exotic garnish there, to produce the dazzling creations for which he is so well known. Now adventuresome home cooks can re-create these spectacular effects in their own kitchens.

Your Place or Mine: Cooking at Home with Restaurant Style follows Jean-Christophe's building-block approach to cooking, offering more than 100 recipes along with dozens of ideas for variations. In sections on Fish and Shellfish, Poultry and Game, Meat, Vegetables, and Desserts, he demonstrates how to build on simple recipes to discover a range of from his repertoire of oils, powders, juices, and reductions. For example, a simple eggplant caviar becomes an integral layer of a luscious Goat Cheese Terrine with Eggplant and Red Pepper Caviar. A straightforward hearty beef daube becomes the stuffing for an elegant sweet glazd onion. Transform fresh pan-seared scallops, Fava Beans, Orange, Vanilla, and Cardamom. Or let the pure flavors of the basic recipes speak for themselves--the choice is yours, according to your mood.

Lavishly illustrated with full--color photographs of both simple and more complex dishes, including the chef's whimsical dessert sensations, along with step-by-step photographs of more intricate culinary techniques, Your Place or Mine will inspire you to experiment, improvise, and be as bold and creative as the chef himself.
