Product Description


“This is a terrific book, full of exactly the kinds of recipes I want from a master chef. There's no special equipment, no exotic ingredients, no long, elaborate preparations. Instead, there are creative, practical dishes that are well within the technical grasp of almost any cook.”
- Russ Parsons, Los Angeles Times

The winner of multiple James Beard Foundation awards, he lives in New York City and Waccabuc, New York, with his family.

HASH(0x9d7ce578) out of 5 stars An Accessible Cookbook by a High End Chef Jan. 15 2012
By DNH@UNC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This cookbook is beautiful, and the few recipes I have cooked from it so far have been delicious and surprisingly easy to prepare. Even though Vongerichten is a big name chef, these recipes really are geared toward the home cook - the ingredients are relatively easy to track down, and the preparations, for the most part, are not especially complicated. The book's recipes are also pretty unique, so it is worth having even if you already own lots of cookbooks. If you tend to shop at farmers' markets or get produce from a CSA farm, you will find this especially useful, as it contains plenty of recipes for vegetables. The quinoa with spinach, mushrooms, and goat cheese is very quick and very tasty.

HASH(0x9d7ce7c4) out of 5 stars A must have Jan. 19 2012
By Hanna Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Having bought too many cookbooks that looked good while browsing, only to have many of them sit on a shelf, I now check them out from a library first. I expected another overwrought chefs cookbook but was delighted by the simplicity and the inspired seasonings. So, I have no choice now but to buy it, sigh...

HASH(0x9d7cea04) out of 5 stars Simple yet Elegant Dec 11 2011
By Susan B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am an avid cookbook collector and I tend to read them like novels. Jean-Georges has so much to share with the culinary world with this latest contribution. The recipes are clear and easy to follow. Every one I have tried so far has been excellent. There are also anecdotes into his life that are charming.

HASH(0x9d7ceba8) out of 5 stars Delicious recipes for nutritious food Dec 16 2011
By Sara Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I will admit that I've only made the butternut squash with balsamic vinegar and panko topping, but wow, was it good. I feel a little silly admitting that I didn't know you could eat butternut squash seeds, but they really added to the topping. And the whole thing was a pretty healthy side for a nice piece of fish. I have my eye on several other vegetable recipes and some of the desserts. The main entrees look a little more difficult than the other recipes in the book, but I'll probably get around to trying those, too. Beautiful pictures, and a beautiful book.

3/29/12 - Update: I made the fettuccine with Meyer lemon cream sauce the other night... WOW. Normally any sort of alfredo sauce makes the whole dish heavy and fatty, but the Meyer lemon really cut through all of that and made it surprisingly light and refreshing. I definitely recommend this one.

HASH(0x9d7cef74) out of 5 stars just buy it! May 1 2013
By A. Garriga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my go to book these days, which is surprising to me since it is somewhat limited in it's selection. Yes, it has all the sections you would expect (appetizers, salads, fish, chicken, etc...), just each section isn't that big. Honestly, it doesn't matter because each recipe is so excellent everyone of them is a keeper - can't say that about most cook books. I have made at least half of the recipes in the book and truly loved each one. Unlike most of Jean-George's stuff, these are pretty simple preparations and most ingredients are easy to find. Whenever I make something from it, people ask for the recipe. I have purchased several of these as gifts as well.

If you have had the pleasure of eating at ABC Kitchen in NYC in the past year or so you will recognize many of the dishes as they are straight off the menu and often easier to make than you might guess.
