As an observer of the New York food scene for over fifty years, I have witnessed (and enjoyed) the constantly evolving landscape of this city’s cuisine. Never has a focus on New York, though, been more exciting than right now as Daniel Humm and his contemporaries skillfully interpret local ingredients and legendary classics. It should be no surprise that this book is as beautiful as it is enjoyable, and as delectable as it is inspiring, given the history of the authors in their restaurants. Their passion for New York and their loyalty to local suppliers of superb ingredients shows throughout the pages, as does the respect and inspiration Daniel Humm exhibits in everything he serves. The result of all of this is a wonderful cookbook full of subtly intriguing recipes that are well within the abilities of any halfway experienced home cook.
