About this deal

Then the usual hurdles he and his growing team faced as they first opened up the Momofuku Noodle Bar. With 200,000+ copies in print, this New York Times bestseller shares the story and the recipes behind the chef and cuisine that changed the modern-day culinary landscape. oh, and here are some recipes that may or may not be what my restaurant serves -- not that most of you will ever know for sure because you're not influential enough to get a reservation -- and, BTW, these recipes may or may not have been properly tested for a home kitchen.

I'm excited to maybe take a stab at some of the more daunting recipes, and see just how they cheat me. Fat also plays a surprising role in the book’s recipe for fried cauliflower with fish sauce vinaigrette, in that there isn’t actually any in the dressing itself, which is a variant of the classic Vietnamese condiment nuoc cham. Since then, Chang and his restaurants have won several James Beard Awards and been the subject of an extended "Chef on the Edge" New Yorker article and Charlie Rose interview. The reviews are sponsored; the resulting articles are unbiased, and the opinions expressed are my own.There are things we say in the kitchen, a codified lexicon, that explain some of the kitchen mentality at Ko.

The book is illustrated by the photo journalist Gabriele Stabile with images of the dishes and scenes of the chef and staff in the restaurants.

The vibrant, urban feel of the book is teamed perfectly with clear and insightful writing that is both witty and accessible. There are several places where Chang really goes into incredible detail in tutorials so that even if you've never tried what he's doing, and never even considered trying it before, you'd have a tough time not doing it right if you follow his careful instructions. But after catering a wedding I found myself with a few offcuts that needed a home – and so they sat in the freezer for a few days until I stumbled upon Chang’s recipe for sam gyup sal ssäm with mustard seed sauce.Except the recipe itself is kind of infuriating to read, because it RELIES on components it tells you how to make later in the book.
