"Coco" is an exciting, unprecedented guide to the most exceptional talent in the international restaurant world. Following in the footsteps of Phaidon's successful 10x10 series featuring young artists in different fields, "Coco" presents 100 of the best emerging chefs from around the world selected by 10 culinary icons: Ferran Adria (Spain), Mario Batali (US), Shannon Bennett (Australia), Alain Ducasse (France), Ferguson Henderson (UK), Yoshihiro Murata (Japan), Gordon Ramsay (UK), Rene Redzepi (Denmark), Alice Waters (US), and Jacky Yu (Hong Kong). The selected 100 chefs are creating the most innovative cuisine today. From Singapore to New York, Stockholm to Surrey, Hong Kong to Paris, these chefs are pushing their craft to new heights and have just begun to receive attention for their cooking.
Arranged alphabetically by chef, the book will present each chef over two spreads with a sample menu and signature recipes, original color photographs of the recipes and of the restaurant, the chef at work, and the chef's environment, including farmers' markets and favorite ingredients. The chef-curators present each of their selected chefs in the form of short insightful essays, and also each discuss one specific dish that has had a particular significance throughout their life or career, accompanied by a recipe and a photograph of the dish.
Part cookbook, part guide to the world's best new restaurants, and part who's who of the international food scene, Coco showcases today's best new chefs, as chosen by 10 international culinary stars.
