The Chef Says
“There is no better accompaniment to pork than pork.” These wise words by Suzanne Goin, Calfornia-based chef and restaurateur, can be found in Princeton Architectural Press’s new book The Chef Says: Quotes, Quips, and Words of Wisdom. It’s the perfect coffee table read and conversation-starter for the ultimate food lover. Follow along with quotes from culinarians as they complement, compete, and disagree with one another. The Chef Says is filled with quips from 150 of the world’s most widely recognized culinary personalities, including James Beard, Gordon Ramsay, Anthony Bourdain and Julia Child. If you disagree with Tom Colicchio’s, “I learned to cook in order to get away from recipes,” then you might just agree with Joyce Goldstein’s “As a recipe addict, I can never have enough”. Here’s my personal favorite from Dan Barber: “Clean plates don’t lie”. Available for $15, The Chef Says is the perfect gift for anyone even remotely interested in culinary culture.
