Recipes from Cooking At Home with a Four-Star Chef

Jean-Georges: Cooking At Home with a Four-Star Chef

The cooking of Jean-Georges Vongerichten–sophisticated yet startlingly uncomplicated, hinting at French and Asian influences yet entirely original–has earned endless raves and accolades from every quarter. Why? Because Vongerichten has invented a culinary style that is highly creative and intensely flavorful but uses few ingredients and is remarkably simple.

Now, Jean-Georges, with award-winning coauthor Mark Bittman, brings this extraordinary cuisine to the home kitchen. There are no mile-long lists of instructions, the recipes use readily available ingredients, and many can be prepared in thirty minutes or less.
