— Favorite Regional Chefs Reveal, Confess, and Speak Out

by Dawn Blume Hawkes

A uniquely chef-centric cookbook, Away from the Kitchen provides a new breed of exploration into the chef-obsessed revolution by capturing the joys and pressures of a chef’s life with a very candid approach. Selected chefs from across the nation have revealed who they are during the private talks about their dreams, talents, and passions both inside and outside the kitchen, which, until now, have remained largely undisclosed. Featured chefs also offer up their cherished breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert menus — many of which include guarded or unpublished recipes. Robert Del Grande’s “Country Western Breakfast,” Nancy Silverton’s “Farmer’s Market Lunch for all Seasons,” Frank Stitt’s “Alabama Asado,” and Roy Yamaguchi’s “Hawaiian Garage Barbecue” are just a few of the imaginative and mouth-watering meals waiting to be discovered.

Away from the Kitchen delivers to those who want it all —the menus, the recipes, the secret cooking tools and tips, favorite artisans, and the behind-the-scenes stories about some of America’s favorite chefs. These unique ingredients make this “chef’s cocktail” new and refreshing.
