Synopsis

From Thomas Keller to Julia Child hundreds of quotes that are sure to please anyone who loves to cook, bake, drink, and eat.As American chef and food writer James Beard once said, "Food is our common ground, a universal experience." Everyone has a favorite food or meal, a method of cooking or baking they swear by, or a secret ingredient they utilize whenever possible. Food brings friends and family together every day, whether in their dining rooms or at tables in their favorite restaurants.The Little Red Book of Kitchen Wisdom presents thoughts on the happenings in kitchens around the world, from the preparation of ingredients to the consumption of meals and everything in between. This book will include quotes from the most respected chefs in the world (such as Heston Blumenthal, Alice Waters, and Grant Achatz), recognizable celebrity chefs and television personalities (Alton Brown, Mario Batali, Cat Cora), food critics and writers (Michael Pollan, Ruth Reichl, Michael Ruhlman), and various actors, actresses, authors, comedians, and poets who like to eat and talk about it.The mix of professionals and celebrities featured in this book will draw the attention of cooks at every level professionals, home cooks, and hobbyists and people who simply love to eat and drink. The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook."  Julia Child I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food."  W.C. Fields The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture."  Michael Pollan"A jazz musician can improvise based on his knowledge of music. He understands how things go together. For a chef, once you have that basis, that's when cuisine is truly exciting."  Charlie TrotterSkyhorse Publishing, along with our Good Books and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of cookbooks, including books on juicing, grilling, baking, frying, home brewing and winemaking, slow cookers, and cast iron cooking.
