Adam Roberts, who is known for his cooking blog, The Amateur Gourmet, has a new book coming out in the fall. For ‘Secrets of the Best Chefs‘, Roberts traveled the country getting tips of the trade from a panoply of amazing chefs, including Alice Waters, Jonathan Waxman, Anito Lo, and more.
The book, available Sept. 10, seems to address one of the major problems with cookbooks: how to actually make a fancy, restaurant quality meal at home given the limited scope of available equipment, talent and ingredients. Most cookbooks are useful only as a starting point for adapting the recipes they contain given the constraints of being an amateur home cook. [via kottke]
