In Max’s words….

“Of course, every season comes with a bevy of new art books attached to chefs. They are, without exception, beautiful, and the food is exceptional too — and yet they still blur together. Another restaurant, another chef, some more food polished to the nth degree. But some of them do stand out. The photos of record albums, paintings and even fish in Massimo Bottura’s NEVER TRUST A SKINNY ITALIAN CHEF (Phaidon, $59.95) demonstrate that food has indeed morphed into an element of high culture. The recipes are preceded by essays, always with a wink (“Guinea Fowl, Not Roasted”). Only the bravest will stand at the cutting board with this book, but I might have the courage to make the striking dish of black katsuobushi broth and cod cooked on charcoal until the fish’s skin is also black.”
