Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I have always loved Ed Behrs approach to food: he peels back the layers to get to the true, pure heart of a dish. His deep gastronomic understanding allows him to create recipes with a kind of beautiful simplicity.”

Alice Waters, Executive Chef, Founder, and Owner of Chez Panisse

"The Art of Eating has been a not-so-guilty indulgence of mine ever since the first issue. Ed Behr has pointed the way to outrageously good meals, whether in Venice or Vermont, with the underlying themes of authenticity and simplicity. Finally, with The Art of Eating Cookbook, we have a collection of recipes that was born of passion and first-hand experience rather than yet another slavish bow to healthy convenience. Bravo!"

Christopher Kimball, Founder and Editor, America's Test Kitchen

“Edward Behrs carefully curated and tested recipes from his always-excellent magazine provide not only fabulous eating but also intelligent and beautifully written lessons from which every cook, both amateur and professional, can learn.”

Wolfgang Puck, Chef and restauranteur

The Art of Eating Cookbook is the cookbook we all wish we'd written. Combining the insight of an epicure with the appetite of a hedonist, it's entertaining, authoritative, and — most important of all — delicious.”

Dan Barber, Chef and Co-Owner of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns

“For a lucky generation of cooks and readers, The Art of Eating has delivered the seductive delights of tradition--described in fine prose with great recipes--making each beautiful issue a satisfying feast. The dishes in the cookbook are true, simple, and pure, they feel like old friends--even the ones I am meeting for the first time.”

Judy Rodgers, Chef and Co-Owner of Zuni Café

“This is no common cookbook but rather an elaborate menu, the delicious contents of which inspire meals for all seasons and occasions. The recipes themselves celebrate in large part the culinary traditions of Italy and France with a clear ring of authenticity that echoes Ed Behrs dedicated travels to the source.”

Paul Bertolli, Chef and Founder Fra' Mani Handcrafted Foods

"The Art of Eating has been a source of culinary education for me for many years. I'm relieved to now have a cooking companion in Ed Behr's unique and insightful style."

David Chang, Chef and Owner of Momofuku

Synopsis:

From his first newsletter, issued in 1986, through todays beautiful full-color magazine, Edward Behr has offered companionship and creativity to avid culinary enthusiasts, including some of Americas most famous chefs. This book collects the best recipes of the magazines past twenty-five years—from classic appetizer and vegetable side dishes to meat entrees and desserts. Each section or recipe is introduced with a note on its relevant cultural history or the particular technique it uses, revealing how competing French and Italian cultural influences have shaped contemporary American cuisine.
