Jonathan Waxman

A Great American Cook

Finally a cookbook from Waxman, who is arguably one of the more renowned and revered chefs in the industry, but not as known outside. Jimmy Bradley (Red Cat, Harrison) describes Waxman’s philosophy as: “something simple done perfectly is always good,” and his cookbook takes the same approach. The font is humble, the layout is basic (sometimes too basic), recipes are approachable in flavor and technique. But the photography that brings the real je ne sais quoi that heightens the book’s appeal, and reminds one of the timeless beauty and seductiveness of fresh ingredients, simply combined (and photographed, of course, in perfect morning light on an appropriately rustic wood table).
