Josh Emett, holder of three Michelin stars and best known for opening Gordon Ramsay's restaurant at the London Hotel in New York, has collected the most important classic recipes from the world's most acclaimed chefs to create a kind of Larousse Gastronomique of the 21st century. These are the best new classics that have emerged during the last 50 years from culinary stars.
Each recipe has been tested by Emett in his home kitchen, and he includes guidance and advice for the home cook – discussing complexity, preparation, key elements, complements for planning a larger menu, and tips of the trade.
Featuring specially commissioned photographs, the book is organised into 12 easy-to-follow sections from basics (stocks, sauces, and dressings), to grains and vegetables, meats, seafood, baking, and more. Each section includes a dedicated introduction with key knowledge elements.
