Find out what’s in some of the world’s most esteemed chef’s kitchens with this fascinating compendium that showcases more than thirty-five of today’s masters, including José Andrés, Christine Tosi, Alice Waters, Daniel Boulud, Nancy Silverton, Wylie Dufresne, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Ludo Lefebvre, and Carla Hall—in up-close profiles and gorgeous color photos, plus two recipes for the dishes they like to cook at home.
For authors Carrie Solomon and Adrian Moore, and demonstrably, to the rest of the world, chefs are intriguing creatures. Their creations shape our culture and become an indelible part of our experience. They make food delicious beyond our wildest dreams. They’re mysterious, dangerous, and (perhaps) a little crazy. But what happens when the chef whites come off and they head home?
Filled with exclusive photographs and interviews granted especially for this book, Chefs’ Fridges is a personal look into the refrigerators and kitchens of more than 35 of the world’s most esteemed chefs, including twelve chefs with thirty-six Michelin stars shared between them. You will feel as if you are having a conversation with a great chef as they stand before an open fridge, deciding what to eat.
Each chef’s entry contains an anecdotal essay that sheds light on his or her personal and culinary background; numerous annotated full-bleed spreads of the contents of their refrigerators and freezers so you can see what makes their culinary clock tick; a short, straightforward Q&A section; an informal portrait in their kitchen; and recipes.
