Rave Review for SHARE

61KpFz9BOSL._SX411_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgIn a few weeks, my latest cookbook collaboration, SHARE with Chopped regular Chris Santos, and one of world's top chefs, will be released.  Publisher's Weekly just printed one of the best reviews I've ever received for a book. It is thrilling when a reader totally gets what you are trying to accomplish with your work, and I'm pleased the this project's purpose was embraced in such an enormous bear hug.  Here it is:  

Santos, known for his communal approach to dining (evidenced by his N.Y.C. eateries, Stanton Social, Beauty & Essex, and Vandal), extends his philosophy to a broader readership, in this outstanding collection guaranteed to appeal to all palates and skill levels. Whether readers are aiming high (chicken liver focaccia with braised shallot-rioja marmalade) or low (crab corn dogs with Old Bay aioli), Santos has them covered in this inventive collection. The book is thoughtfully curated and hits all the right foodie notes (red velvet waffles with cream cheese sauce; sliders made up of three types of beef and bacon, topped with a riff on Russian dressing and cola-braised onions) without alienating newcomers or novices. Instructions are clear and to the point; the emphasis is on flavor rather than culinary showmanship and arcane ingredients. Santos is a master craftsman and has assembled one of the most solid compilations of approachable, inventive fare in recent memory. His work deserves space on any respecting foodie’s bookshelf.(Feb.)
