I’m collaborating on a cookbook with the photographer Sandeep Patwal profiling the innovative and resourceful food producers, chefs, and home cooks along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, a 1,500 mile stretch of coastline spanning the nation’s entire western coast.

The book, which will contain recipes inspired by and stories from the incredible people we’ve met during our long and enriching journey, will be published by Gill & MacMillan  in the spring of 2016.

Look for a sneak peak in the October, 2015 issue of Saveur Magazine.

The Extraordinary Beauty of Iceland Inspired the Cookbook North

In 2014, Ten Speed Press  published the cookbook North: The New Nordic Cuisine of Iceland, which I co-wrote with the Icelandic chef Gunnar Karl Gislason profiling the traditional food producers of Iceland. The book includes Gunnar’s contemporary recipes along with a foreword by Rene Redzepi.

North received extensive press coverage including in The New York Times, Food & Wine Magazine, America’s Test Kitchen, Andrew Zimmern, The Guardian, and  Eater National.

It was listed by Amazon as a top holiday gift pick, and Time Magazine, Saveur, and Tasting Table called it one of the season’s top cookbooks.

It received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and was the IACP Judge’s Choice winner in 2015.

Gunnar’s recipes from North were also included in Food & Wine Magazine’s August issue  featuring  simple, fast, no cook options for summer. Gunnar also made an appearance on The Martha Stewart Show  prior to the publication of our book.

Here’s additional media coverage for North.

  2. Has it been 25 years since the inception of Art Culinaire? I remember visiting your Morristown, NJ think tank in 1992. (or so)

    Your work captures my imagination and fills my belly with great photography and prose.
