Jeremiah Tower Cooks: 250 Recipes from an American Master Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Donald Sultan's vivid still-life paintings are a perfect match to Tower's lively style, and if sometimes recipes get out of hand, well, that's to be expected from this kind of creative mind....It has been 16 long years since Tower's New American Classics won a James Beard Award, but he returns with a bang here." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A witty and erudite writer, Tower is a man of strong opinions....'Delights and Prejudices,' the first chapter, presents his philosophy on food and cooking, and recipe headnotes and other reflections throughout the book expand on that introduction....Anyone interested in American cooking will want to read this. For most collections." Library Journal

Review:

"[Jeremiah Tower Cooks] is not a coffee-table book, but a great, highly opinionated read in which Mr. Tower puts his food memories, his career as a chef and restaurateur, his friends and colleagues on the table..." Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

Review:

"Nobody seriously interested in food and fine cooking can afford to be without this inspired and important new book." James Vilas, author of Between Bites

Review:

"The recipes are not only utterly mouth watering, but they are quite accessible for the home cook." Charlie Trotter, author and chef/owner of Charlie Trotter's

Synopsis:

This long-awaited cookbook from the "father of California cooking" presents a selection of his extraordinary yet approachable recipes. Ranging from continental classics made with American ingredients to American regional specialties, and illustrated with still lifes by a great American painter. 250 recipes, 20 color paintings.
