Bookshop Santa Cruz welcomes two-time James Beard Award-winning author Karen Page (The Flavor Bible) for a discussion and signing of her new book, Kitchen Creativity: Unlocking Culinary Genius--With Wisdom, Inspiration, and Ideas from the World's Most Creative Chefs.
How does one get to be a great cook--the kind who can walk into a kitchen and create a dish from scratch and know exactly how to make it taste delicious? In this extraordinary new exploration of culinary greatness, Karen Page reveals the secrets and techniques that the best chefs use to create memorable, delicious meals. For professional and home cooks alike, Page shows how we can all answer a universal question: How do I cook something new tonight?
Good cooking is not just the right recipe or ingredients: it's a mental approach we can all cultivate--and on the subject of such "food IQ," Karen Page's insight is unrivaled. Page supplements her two decades of culinary experience with more than a hundred interviews with leading chefs from around the world. Page's books display a profound intelligence and intuition about the world of food, chefs, and cooking-and they are supported by an extraordinary set of personal and professional connections. Page has anticipated or created culinary trends from her very first book, and KITCHEN CREATIVITY will lead cooks of all kinds to greater skill and creativity.
Karen Page is a whose books include The Vegetarian Flavor Bible and The Flavor Bible, which was named one of the year's best cookbooks on both Today and Good Morning America, one of the 100 best cookbooks of the last twenty-five years by Cooking Light, and one of the ten best cookbooks in the world of the past century by Forbes. The former Washington Postwine columnist is also the author of What to Drink with What You Eat, which was named the IACP Cookbook of the Year and Georges Duboeuf Wine Book of the Year. She lives with her husband, author and photographer Andrew Dornenburg, in New York City.
"Page gathers insights both philosophical and practical from famed chefs... [and] points out the patterns in how great dishes come about, encouraging readers to recognize the pressures and accidents that often result in something wonderful, as well as the self-reflection and experimentation required to get you there."―Maggie Hoffman, Plate
"An instant classic, the rare book that helps the creator learn to think, not just do."―Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author of Linchpin
"Utter genius... if Leonardo da Vinci wrote a book on culinary creativity in 2017, this would be it."―Michael Gelb, New York Times bestselling author of How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci
