The contributors include the culinary world's finest, with such cookbook authors, chefs, and food luminaries as Jean-Georges Vongerichten, David Chang, and Bobby Flay. Mouthwatering dishes from Curtis Stone, Francois Payard and Thomas Keller were tested on home appliances, making them easy to re-create. The exceptionally clear recipes will enable you to create impressive restaurant-style dishes in your own kitchen. The recipes in "Food & Wine Annual Cookbook 2010" reflect the many ways to cook today; real food that real people who want to eat well can actually prepare.
