General Note
Includes index.
A masterwork of culinary genius: inside the kitchen at "trailblazing" ( Eater ) chef Homaro Cantu's Moto--one of the most innovative restaurants in history. At Chicago's world-renowned, Michelin-starred restaurant Moto, Homaro Cantu pushed the limits of cuisine to deliver an unforgettable experience at the intersection of food, art, and science. Each meal reimagined what cooking could be: edible menus imbued with the flavors of the dishes to follow, carbonated fruit that fizzed when bitten, a transparent box that cooked fish in front of your eyes. Chef Cantu's work in the kitchen continues to captivate the imagination, delight the palate, and articulate how futuristic food can help solve global ills like hunger, poverty, and environmental destruction. From his "zero food mile" kitchen garden to experiments with miracle berries to end our reliance on sugar, Cantu's mission was to serve dinner with a side of changing the world. Featuring hundreds of stunning photographs, MOTO: The Cookbook is a living record of a restaurant and a chef who defined modernist cuisine. It reveals the inspiration and groundbreaking techniques behind 100 of Cantu's most influential and extraordinary dishes, and traces his development from a young chef to a mind on the cutting edge of American food. MOTO: The Cookbook will inspire cooks of all abilities.
