Jeremiah Tower Cooks - Google Books

“Jeremiah Tower changed the face of American cooking. With San Francisco’s glittering Stars restaurant, he became this country’s first celebrity chef and winning two James Beard Foundation awards, including one for best chef in the U.S. Without debate, Tower is one of the country’s greatest cooks. In this extraordinary cookbook, he presents over 250 recipes representing the last fifteen years of his creative cooking. More than a cookbook, however, Jeremiah Tower Cooks reveals Tower’s extraordinary gift as a writer and storyteller. The result is a book of exceptional delights from a marvelous writer and a brilliant cook.”

“Tower shares with wit and honesty the real dish on cooking, chefs, celebrities, and what really goes on in the kitchen. Above all, Tower rhapsodizes about food — the meals choreographed like great ballets, the menus scored like concertos. No other book reveals more about the seeds sown in the seventies, the excesses of the eighties, and the self-congratulations of the nineties. No other chef/restaurateur who was there at the very beginning is better positioned than Jeremiah Tower to tell the story of the American culinary revolution.”

In this companion volume to the PBS series “Cooking with Master Chefs,” Julia Child introduces sixteen of America’s talented chefs from different parts of the country including Andre Soltner, Jeremiah Tower, Charles Palmer, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, Robert Del Grande, Nancy Silverton, and Jacques Pepin. Photographs as well as each chef’s recipes.
