You may not be able to get a table at Eleven Madison Park or The Nomad, chef Daniel Humm and Will Guidara’s sought after New York restaurants, but now you can attempt to cook just like them at home. Their beautiful new recipe book aptly named I heart New York is full of sophisticated dishes that focus solely on local produce.
Arranged alphabetically by ingredient, the cookbook highlights the New York farmers and artisans who are the masters at creating and growing the produce followed by recipes using the particular ingredient discussed.
These aren’t the type of dishes you just throw together with no preparation, but rather you attack with all the vigour of a top chef, attempting reductions and freeze drying vegetables and other complicated culinary techniques. However, even if you skip the more difficult instructions, it’s a great jumping off point to make deliciously exquisite New York meals that will impress not only your friends but you too.I Heart New York by Daniel Humm and Will Guidara.
