Cookbook Recommendation: White Heat 25
Let’s talk about the story behind the youngest chef to earn three Michelin stars. Having mentored some of the industry’s biggest players, including Mario Batali, Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal, Marco Pierre White has become an iconic name in the culinary world. He is polarizing and bursting with talent and emotion, so much so, he has been dubbed the “enfant terrible” of the food world. In the 25th edition of his book, now called White Heat 25, Marco does not disappoint. Each page offers humor and eccentricity. Featuring 70 of Marco’s classic recipes, this book is less of a guide to cook with, and more of a masterpiece to lose yourself in. Fricassee of seas scallops and calamares with ginger and sauce nero, braised pig’s foot, and roast guinea fowl with wild mushrooms fill the pages. Pulling the entire piece together are the iconic photos of Chef Marco ruling the kitchen. White Heat 25, $40, is brilliant.
