In this beautifully designed and photographed cookbook, over 50 of America's most notable chefs—including Charlie Trotter, Thomas Keller, Emeril Lagasse, Jacques Pepin, Alice Waters, and Mark Miller—have collaborated to memorialize one of their most influential and visionary colleagues the best way they know how . . . with good food. Patrick Clark, who died at age 42 while awaiting a heart transplant, was a chef trained in the French tradition, who achieved celebrity status and served as a role model for other African Americans interested in the culinary arts.
