About the Author
“Tanis has long been one of the best voices on modern American cooking, a gifted chef—25 years at Chez Panisse—and equally gifted writer. His new book is a lovely one, with 200 recipes embedded in almost 500 pages, all geared toward today’s vegetable-driven cuisine. . . . Tanis’s food is deeply flavorful, honest, creative and always, always fun to cook.”
“Deciding what to cook based on what looks good at the market only works if you have a roster of simple, accessible recipes for each ingredient at your fingertips. Luckily, that’s exactly what the new book from [David Tanis] delivers here.”
“An inspired collection of ideas that serves as a teaching manual of sorts, with traditionally written recipes, ingredients and steps spelled out, and a more informal description in narrative form of how to prep a dish.”
“Tanis invites us to learn deeply about each ingredient and to discover cooking methods and recipes that showcase what makes them special. . . . With wisdom and generosity, Tanis eases us in the direction of more intuitive, more spontaneous cooking. The point of it all is this: Delicious needn’t be complicated. And that’s something that every cook—from beginner to pro—can appreciate.”
“A gentle, approachable guide to getting the most out of your [market] haul. . . . [Tanis’s] calm, Jedi-like assurance guides you into making a perfect Tuscan pork roast, Oaxaca-style garlic soup, or a quick harissa recipe that you’ll soon know by heart. There’s a reason that young-gun chefs like Ignacio Mattos, who cooked with Tanis at Chez Panisse, revere him: He’s got The Knowledge.”
