"Whenever I see that Dos Equis commercial - 'the most interesting man in the world' - I always think, no, that's not true. The most interesting man in the world is Alex Atala." - David Chang
"A cuisine unlike anything I've ever had in my life." - Daniel Humm, Eleven Madison Mark
"I believe that cuisine is the most important link between nature and culture." - Alex Atala
At D.O.M. in Sao Paulo, widely regarded as one of the world's best restaurants, you won't find the traditional staples of fine dining on the menu. For the past 15 years, acclaimed chef Alex Atala - a native of Brazil and the only chef named one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013 - has refused to import any ingredients traditionally found in the European kitchens where he once trained. Instead, Atala scours the lush bounty of the Amazon for indigenous produce and proteins, crafting a cuisine that is steeped in classical techniques yet distinctly and uniquely Brazilian.
D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients is Atala's first major cookbook. Here, he offers an in-depth look at the products and creative process that make up his innovative cuisine. The book features 65 recipes such as Fresh Heart of Palm with Scallops and Coral Sauce; Lightly Toasted Black Rice with Green Vegetables and Brazil Nut Milk; Lamb Hind Shanks with Yam Puree and Pitanga; and Priprioca, Lime, and Banana Ravioli. 150 stunning color photographs bring each dish to life and reveal the lush, vibrant landscapes of Atala's Brazil. The result is an immersive experience that transports readers into the streets of Sao Paulo and the rain forests of Amazon. Also featuring an introduction by chef Alain Ducasse, D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredientsexplores the mind of one of the world's best chefs as he captures flavors that can be found nowhere else in the world.

Florentine is a collection of delicious recipes and stunning photographs from Tuscany's capital. Emiko Davies draws on her personal experience of traditional Florentine cuisine to share recipes that transport readers to the piazzas of Florence. From her torta di mele - a reassuringly nonna-esque apple cake - to Pappardelle all'anatra - mouth watering pappardelle with rich duck ragu sauce - allow yourself to be taken on a culinary tour through the city. From the morning ritual of la pasticceria (the pastry shop) and il forno (the bakery), the tantalizing fresh produce of il mercato (the market) and il maccellaio (the butcher) through to the romance of la trattoria, or perhaps let yourself be swept up in the atmosphere of Florence's street food scene with a few bites of crunchy crostini with fig compote and prosciutto, or savor a silky gelato of hazelnut and crema.
Seasons and long-held food traditions play an important role in the Tuscan kitchen and this is reflected in every Florentine menu, bakery window or market stall. Florentine is a unique stroll through the city's streets, past pastry shops bustling with espresso-sippers, hole-in-the-wall wine bars, busy food vans and lunchtime trattorias, to reveal why the people of Florence remain proudly attached to their unchanging cuisine - a cuisine that tells the unique story of its city, dish by dish.

Rene Redzepi has been widely credited with re-inventing Nordic cuisine. His Copenhagen restaurant, Noma, was recognized as the #1 best in the world by the San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurant awards in April 2010 after receiving the 'Chef's Choice' award in 2009.
Redzepi operates at the cutting edge of gourmet cuisine, combining an unrelenting creativity and a remarkable level of craftsmanship with an inimitable and innate knowledge of the produce of his Nordic terroir.
At Noma, which Redzepi created from a derelict eighteenth-century warehouse in 2003 after previously working at both elBulli and The French Laundry, diners are served exquisite concoctions, such as 'Newly-Ploughed Potato Field' or 'The snowman from Jukkasjarvi', all painstakingly constructed to express their amazing array of Nordic ingredients.
His search for ingredients involves foraging amongst local fields for wild produce, sourcing horse-mussels from the Faroe Islands and the purest possible water from Greenland. Redzepi has heightened the culinary philosophy of seasonally and regionally sourced sustainable ingredients to an unprecedented level, and in doing so has created an utterly delicious cuisine.
At the age of 32, Redzepi is one of the most influential chefs in the world.
Noma: Time and Place in Nordic Cuisine will offer an exclusive insight into the food, philosophy and creativity of Rene Redzepi. It will reveal the first behind the scenes look at the restaurant, Noma, and will feature over 90 recipes as well as excerpts from Redzepi's diary from the period leading up to the opening of the restaurant and texts on some the most enigmatic of Noma's suppliers. The book will include 200 new specially commissioned color photographs of the dishes, unique local ingredients and landscapes from across the Nordic region. It will also include a foreward by the artist Olafur Eliasson.
