Description: Many chefs keep a personal notebook filled with recipe ideas, new ways to use ingredients, and records of what did or didn't work. But how often do you get to peek inside?
Now Harold Dieterle, chef/owner of New York City's popular restaurants Perilla and Kin Shop, and Season 1 champion of the hit Bravo TV show Top Chef -- pulls back the curtain to give every home cook a look inside his kitchen. Incorporating Harold's eclectic mix of New American, Italian, Thai, and German influences, this cookbook offers dishes you'd expect to find in a restaurant, but which can easily be prepared at home.
While each recipe comprises several important ingredients and elements, one standout component is identified in each. Harold's notebook entry shares why that component is so special and offers a number of additional ways to use it.
Dishes include: Ricotta Cheese with Acorn Squash Tempura, Truffle Honey, and Toasted Bread; Spaghetti with Crab Fra Diavolo and Toasted Bread Crumbs; Roasted Whole Chicken with Spaetzle, Chestnuts, and Persimmons; Grilled Venison Sirloin with Potato Leek Gratin, Asparagus, and Huckleberry Sauce; Warm Flourless Chocolate and Peanut Butter Souffle Cake with Coffee Creme Anglaise; and many more!
Condition: Good condition. Back dust jacket has small crease.
