James Beard Nominee 2019 for Best Cookbook, Restaurant and Professional category
From Sarah and Evan Rich, chef-proprietors of Michelin-starred Rich Table—one of San Francisco's most coveted reservations—this debut cookbook offers recipes from the restaurant as well as the meals the Riches cook for friends and family at home. Evan and Sarah Rich execute casual Californian fare with fine-dining precision, interweaving the pair’s hometown influences (New Jersey and Louisiana) and a bevy of global influences along the way.
Full-color photographs and a textured cover with foil stamping capture the rustic elegance of the food and the restaurant, while 85 meticulously tested recipes span salads, vegetables, meat and fish, sweets, drinks, and the pasta dishes that send diners into raptures. This is inspired, innovative cooking for those who want to set a rich table at home.
• 85 delicious, easy-to-follow recipes
• Evocative photography and textured cover with foil stamping
