Summary

Away From the Kitchen offers a glimpse into the joys and pressures of a chef’s life—satisfying the curiosity of those swept up in the wave of America’s chef-obsession. Here, selected chefs from across the nation disclose some of their most personal dreams and talents—revealing who they are inside and outside the kitchen.



In these pages, featured chefs offer up their cherished breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert menus—many of them including never-before-published recipes. Robert Del Grande’s “Country Western Breakfast,” Nancy Silverton’s “Farmer’s Market Lunch for All Seasons,” Frank Stitt’s “Alabama Asado,” and Roy Yamaguchi’s “Hawaiian Garage Barbecue” are just a few of the imaginative and mouth-watering meals to be discovered in Away From the Kitchen. Also included are the personal stories behind each menu, and—best of all—each chef’s insider kitchen tools and tips.



With its uniquely personal approach, Away From the Kitchen will appeal to foodies everywhere, as well as readers who want it all: the menus, the recipes, and the chef “scoop.”

    In the unknown author’s preface, she describes her purpose as to provide ladies with suggestions for what is reasonable for their tables for each day in the week, so they can easily provide an agreeable variety to their families. The menus are organized by month with seasonal considerations, and then by day of the week (to be repeated within that month as needed), and by meal: breakfast, tea or lunch (if dinner is late) and dinner with several courses from soup to dessert. This edition of What Shall We Eat? was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.
