An original voice in American cooking and an advocate for the home chef, David Tanis (A Platter of Figs, Heart of the Artichoke) writes the weekly “City Kitchen” column for the New York Times and was chef at Chez Panisse. His new book, One Good Dish: The Pleasures of a Simple Meal, offers creative but accessible recipes—from delicate cornmeal popovers, to tartare made from beets—that redefine comfort food.
“David Tanis understands that sometimes maximum flavor is achieved through subtraction. This book is a perfect example of his culinary philosophy that food doesn't have to be complicated to be delicious.”
