" "Whenever I see that Dos Equis commercial – ‘the most interesting man in the world’ – I always think, no, that’s not true. The most interesting man in the world is Alex Atala." – David Chang "A cuisine unlike anything I’ve ever had in my life." – Daniel Humm, Eleven Madison Mark At D.O.M. in São Paulo, widely regarded as one of the world’s best restaurants, you won’t find the traditional staples of fine dining on the menu. For the past 15 years, acclaimed chef Alex Atala – a native of Brazil and the only chef named one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013 – has refused to import any ingredients traditionally found in the European kitchens where he once trained. Instead, Atala scours the lush bounty of the Amazon for indigenous produce and proteins, crafting a cuisine that is steeped in classical techniques yet distinctly and uniquely Brazilian. D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients is Atala’s first major cookbook. Here, he offers an in‐depth look at the products and creative process that make up his innovative cuisine. The book features 65 recipes such as Fresh Heart of Palm with Scallops and Coral Sauce; Lightly Toasted Black Rice with Green Vegetables and Brazil Nut Milk; Lamb Hind Shanks with Yam Puree and Pitanga; and Priprioca, Lime, and Banana Ravioli. 150 stunning color photographs bring each dish to life and reveal the lush, vibrant landscapes of Atala’s Brazil. The result is an immersive experience that transports readers into the streets of São Paulo and the rain forests of Amazon. Also featuring an introduction by chef Alain Ducasse, D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients explores the mind of one of the world’s best chefs as he captures flavors that can be found nowhere else in the world.

Dessert is an extraordinary book from two-Michelin-starred chef, David Everitt-Matthias. Following on from his critically acclaimed debut, Essence, this stunning second book explores the world, and pushes the boundaries, of the dessert chef's art. Each of the book's five main chapters focuses on a specific family of ingredients: Chocolate and Nut; Fruit; Vegetable; Roots, Pods, Seeds and Bark; and Wild. There is also a section outlining the essentials and basics from which his craft begins and several pages of Petits Fours - the perfect finishing touch. With no specific pastry chef training, David approaches the idea of dessert free from doctrine and received wisdom. A great originator and writer of recipes - someone who is able to instruct with precision and passion - he has created a book that is singular in its content, style and technique. Each recipe in Dessert can be deconstructed into its component parts, enabling individual elements from within - such as a pure, ice cream, sabayon, sorbet or cream - to be enjoyed on their own or alongside other desserts.
