Cooking from the Heart: 100 Great American Chefs Share Recipes They Cherish
Synopses & Reviews
Cooking from the Heart features one hundred of the country's most beloved and well-known chefs, who each contribute not only a superb dish — whether a holiday tradition, comfort food, cross-cultural innovation, or family classic — but also the story of why that dish means the world to them. The chefs speak as parents, children, partners, neighbors, husbands, wives, and friends. Cooking from the Heart is a joyous collection of recipes in which love is always the first ingredient.
Here are Ming Tsai and his family wrapping potstickers on the Ping-Pong table in his grandmother's house, Gale Gand and her son making pie crusts with a rolling pin that's been in their family for five generations, Seth Bixby Daugherty improvising a mulberry crisp on a cross-country peace march, Marcel Desaulnier recounting the Christmas his mother sent him her chocolates and cookies while he was serving in Vietnam, and Lidia Bastianich crushing herbs under her infant grandchildren's noses for their first smells.
From Jean-Georges Vongerichten's grandmother's Alsatian Lamb Stew to Rick Bayless's hometown Orchard Peach Cobbler, from Sara Moulton's Grilled Fish discovered on a magical trip to Greece to Emeril Lagasse's favorite Bolognese Sauce for Sundays with friends, Cooking from the Heart presents an inexhaustible range of recipes you'll want to make your own. These are stories to cherish; they will remind you of — and even inspire — your own family's mealtimes and traditions.A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit Share Our Strength, one of the nation's preeminent antihunger agencies. Its programs include Taste of the Nation® and the Great American Bake Sale, a nationwide fund-raising event that targets childhood hunger. Since 1984, Share Our Strength has distributed more than $68 million to fight hunger worldwide.
