Alinea is an inspirational book, from one of the most avantgarde Chefs in the world, Grant Achatz. I love finding a perfect gift. Make it available, put it in the supermarket.

Is Alinea’s food art?

We have already started on our modern day pantry but I will leave the execution of these recipes to the expert chef in the house. I can see where this would be great fun in the restaurant, but at home something like this seems pretty over the top. We went all out since it was our first time and jumped in for the full tour. Given the writing talents of the food writers involved Michael Ruhlman, Jeffrey Steingarten, Mark McCluskey and Michael Nagrant the essays are mainly rehashes of better articles each has written about the Alinea dini As a coffee table book, Lara Kaster’s photographs are some of the most stunning food photography I’ve ever seen.


Grant and his partner Nick Kokonas, along with designer Martin Kastner and his wife, photographer Lara Kastner, wanted to do it on their own and so they have.

But this book is totally all of those things!! Carolyn Coo,book Bravo to Grant Achatz for creating this singularly mesmerizing cookbook, all the while fighting for his life against cancer.

All I cookvook say is WOW. I was unaware that I mistakenly ordered two copies of the cookbook online. Kokonas puts it even more bluntly. Nov 09, Monica rated it liked it Shelves: The food pairing is unique, the presentation is impeccably designed- just wow.

A pioneer in American cuisine, chef Grant Achatz represents the best of the molecular gastronomy movement–brilliant fundamentals and exquisite taste paired with a groundbreaking approach to new techniques and equipment. And some of the recipes are for things like “juniper berry skins”.

Kastner, I believe a sculptor by trade, had never designed a book. He man Oh boy.

Guy Who Cooked the Entire Alinea Cookbook Wrote a Beautiful-Looking Book About the Experience

Chef Achatz quest to make every culinary creation a holistic experience is reflected across the book: No matter what happens, I always learn from these things. Chalk it up to irrational exuberence. It would make a great gift for any a,inea snob and it is a high quality product, which is getting to be unusua As a foodie who is more interested in rustic foodways, I’m almost offended by molecular gastronomy. The approach of Chef Achatz of the ever-constant questioning attitude and the quest to surpass expectations is quite unique.

The new Alinea cookbook buy at Amazon is pretty spectacular, but I could like it more.
