Clean plates don t lie.---Dan Barber

Great chefs are neither self-effacing nor meek. There's no room for manners in the professional kitchen, where the slightest stumble can send an entire restaurant into the weeds. So it follows that even in quieter moments, what chefs have to say is always opinionated and always illuminating. The Chef Says is an invitation to the ultimate food lover's dinner party, where cooks from ancient Greece rub shoulders and talk shop with today's rising stars. These unruly culinarians compliment, compete, and disagree with one another as they discuss childhood and training, taste preferences and trends, the quest for perfection, and the grueling but exhilarating business of opening a restaurant. The Chef Says will captivate anyone who has ever worked in a kitchen, been inspired by a flawlessly ripe tomato, or resolved a crisis by adding more butter.
  • The fourth volume in our successful Quotes, Quips, and Words of Wisdom series, following The Architect Says, The Designer Says, and The Filmmaker Says
  • The first compendium to focus solely on quotations from chefs themselves, it's the perfect gift for professionals, foodies, home cooks, and anyone interested in culinary culture
  • Features 150 quotes from an international roster of chefs, including Mario Batali, James Beard, Anthony Bourdain, Julia Child, Sally Clarke, Tom Colicchio, Elizabeth David, Thomas Keller, Eric Ripert, and Alice Waters


Authors Nach Waxman and Matt Sartwell are the owners of the celebrated Kitchen Arts & Letters bookstore in New York City, which offers 13,000 food and-drink-related titles
