Cooking Like a Master Chef Cookbook

by Graham Elliot

SPECIAL EVENT: On Monday, November 16th, Chef Graham Elliot will be signing copies of his cookbook at The General Store North Park in San Diego, CA.  To attend, please visit The General Store Grand Opening Party.

“Graham has made a book for everyone, accessible and intelligent with superb recipes that will raise your technique level, grow your confidence in the kitchen and turn you into the cook you always wanted to be at home. This book perfectly demonstrates why Graham is one of the country’s truly great culinarians.”
–Andrew Zimmern, chef, food writer, co-creator and host of the Travel Channel series Bizarre Foods

Graham Elliot, cohost of the popular Fox series MasterChef and MasterChef Junior, and host of the new Food Network show, Craziest Restaurants in America, wants everyone to cook—to push up their sleeves and get some good food on the table. So, he’s written his first cookbook, COOKING LIKE A MASTER CHEF: 100 Recipes to Make the Everyday Extraordinary (Atria Books; October 27, 2015; $30.00), an entertaining, accessible guide for the home cook to create delicious, beautiful food for every occasion. Graham teaches great techniques and encourages everyone to have a lot of fun along the way — all in line with his philosophy that there is no right or wrong when it comes to creativity in the kitchen.

Grouped by season, Graham’s one hundred recipes are illustrated with gorgeous, full-color photographs and accompanied by simple, straightforward instructions — with some intriguingly tasty twists. Graham believes that, whether you are a top-notch chef or a talented home cook, sometimes you want to be spontaneous and improvise, like a jazz musician. So when you need to change the music and try a new take on a favorite recipe, here are ways you can do just that. How about Buffalo Chicken with Celeriac Slaw and Blue Cheese or Graham’s signature Truffled Popcorn? Or a comforting Short Rib Stroganoff with Spaetzle, Wild Mushrooms, and Peppered Sour Cream or Potato Gnocchi with Shaved Pecorino and Brown Butter? And then there are his magnificent Lollapalooza Lobster Corn Dogs and recipes the kids will love such as Maple Whipped Yams or his very nontraditional Banana Splits.  It’s no wonder so many people love Graham and his energetic creativity. Beautifully photographed, with Graham’s warmth and fun on every page, COOKING LIKE A MASTER CHEF shows you how to make great tasting, delicious, endlessly inventive food that you’ll come back to again and again.
