One hundred beloved recipes from twenty-five of the most successful and exciting women chefs in New York City.
     Women Chefs of New York is a colorful showcase of twenty-five leading female culinary talents in the restaurant capital of the world. In a fiercely competitive, male-dominated field, these women have risen to the top, and their stories—and their recipes—make it abundantly clear why. Food writer Nadia Arumugam braves the sharp knives and the sputtering pans of oil for intimate interviews, revealing the chefs' habits, quirks, food likes and dislikes, their proudest achievements, and their aspirations. And each chef contributes four signature recipes—appetizers, entrees, and desserts—to recreate the experience of a meal from their celebrated kitchens. This gorgeous fullcolor cookbook includes portraits of these inspiring women, inviting interior shots of their restaurants, and mouth-watering pictures of the featured dishes, styled by the chefs themselves—all captured by celebrated food photographer Alice Gao. Women Chefs of New York features allstars such as Amanda Freitag, Jody Williams, April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig, The Breslin), Gabrielle Hamilton (Prune), Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar), and Alex Raij (La Vara, Txikito, El Quinto) as well as up-and-coming players like Zahra Tangorra (Brucie), Ann Redding (Uncle Boons), and Sawako Ockochi (Shalom Japan). It's the ultimate gift for any cook or  foodie—man or woman—interested in the food that's dazzling discerning palates in NYC now.

Editorial Reviews

"Although the 100 unusual recipes presented here are certainly one attraction of Arumugam's latest book, interviews with two-dozen-plus-one women chefs are, in a word, mesmerizing." -Booklist"In 25 portraits of women who own and cook in New York's restaurants, food journalist and blogger Arumugam sheds light on how these chefs arrived at the forefront of New York's restaurant scene. Biographical essays and inquisitive, lighthearted interviews reveal how personal memories, training, creativity, and persistence without compromise keep the chefs at the top of their game... Arumugam believes it's time to challenge the media's preference for male chefs and correct the 'imbalance of shelf space' dedicated to noteworthy leading female restaurateurs." -Publishers Weekly
