Join one of the world's greatest chefs in his most personal book yet, as Jean-Georges Vongerichten shares his favorite casual recipes in Home Cooking with Jean-Georges.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten needs little introduction. This French-born chef is at the helm of a worldwide restaurant empire, with locations in New York, Las Vegas, London, Paris, and Shanghai. His eponymous New York restaurant, Jean Georges, is one of six in the entire country to have been awarded three Michelin stars. Yet, for all of his global success, Jean-Georges' greatest joy in life is family--then food. In Home Cooking with Jean-Georges, he brings readers into his weekend home, where he cooks simple, delicious dishes while enjoying the company of friends and family.
A few years ago, Jean-Georges decided to give himself a gift that most of us take for granted: two-day weekends. He and his wife, Marja, and his three children--Chloe, Cedric, and Louise--retreat to their country home in Waccabuc, New York. There, Jean-Georges produces the masterful, fresh flavors for which he is known--but with little effort and few dishes to clean at the end.
Home Cooking with Jean-Georges shares the recipes for these easy, quick, seasonal meals that are Vongericthen family favorites: Crab Toasts with Sriracha Mayonnaise, Watermelon and Blue Cheese Salad, Herbed Sea Bass and Potatoes in Broth, Lamb Chops with Smoked Chile Glaze and Warm Fava Beans, Parmesan-Crusted Chicken, Fresh Corn Pudding Cake, Tarte Tatin, and Buttermilk Pancakes with Warm Berry Syrup.
With 100 recipes and 100 full-color photographs--including ones taken at his house in Waccabuc--Home Cooking with Jean-Georges gives home cooks inspiration by sharing the accessible home cooking repertoire of this world-class chef.
