Présentation de l'éditeur
For anyone who believes in the potential for artistry in the realm of food, Culinary Artistry is a must–read. This is the first book to examine the creative process of culinary composition as it explores the intersection of food, imagination, and taste. Through interviews with more than 30 of America′s leading chefsa including Rick Bayless, Daniel Boulud, Gray Kunz, Jean–Louis Palladin, Jeremiah Tower, and Alice Watersa the authors reveal what defines "culinary artists," how and where they find their inspiration, and how they translate that vision to the plate. Through recipes and reminiscences, chefs discuss how they select and pair ingredients, and how flavors are combined into dishes, dishes into menus, and menus into bodies of work that eventually comprise their cuisines.

First of all, although it was clear from the start, it is not a cookbook at all. Far from it, it is neither a book on the techniques every cook should know nor a collection of useful or good recipes. It is rather a reference book for food lovers and potentially for chefs.
Food matching is the most interesting section of the book. No doubt this is the perfect book for somebody who is not looking for specific dishes or ingredients, but for inspiration. However, having already bought "The Flavor Bible", you will notice that Culinary Artistry not only has some overlapping with `the bible" but also is rather incomplete. That is quite disappointing...
Admittedly, this book is quite useful for a reference concerning matching different food, although many of the matchs look standard, and any chef should know what goes with what. In all cases, it can be a good place to find ideas, or to remember food combinations, and the tables are very clear.
The biggest complaint - to the extent I was about to ask for a replacement or refund, is that, having received the book by mail, I could not notice that the book has rough uncut irregular edges making it impossible to browse through its pages. I also wonder whether I got a faulty or second hand book.
It comes as a surprise as the book deals with presentation and sense-inviting meals (e.g. flat food vs. architectural presentation)
As to the paper quality and the presentation itself, don't expect a great thing: it lacks pictures showing the artistic presentation of the finished plates.Certainly presentation is in my opinion part of food artistry.
The rest of the book is fascinating in how the top chefs think about menu design, food preparation and presentation but I have only skimmed the book as yet. This is not a book you can read from cover to cover unless you are in chef school!
I find the book fascinating and I keep going back to it over and over again. It is interesting that I disagree with some of the concepts presented, but even top chefs disagree so I am not alone, and I am not planning to run a restaurant, just cook better and more interestingly for my family. This is a must-read book
