The Underground Culinary Tour is a high-octane, behind-the-scenes narrative about how the restaurant industry, historically run by gut and intuition, is being transformed by the use of data. Sixteen years ago, entrepreneur Damian Mogavero brought together an unlikely mix of experts—chefs and code writers—to create a pioneering software company whose goal was to empower restaurateurs, through the use of data, to elevate and enhance the guest experience. Today, his data gathering programs are used by such renown chefs as Danny Meyer, Tom Colicchio, Daniel Boulud, Guy Fieri, Giada De Laurentiis, Gordon Ramsay, and countless others. Mogavero describes such restaurateurs as the New Guard, and their approach to their art and craft is radically different from that of their predecessors. By embracing data and adapting to the new trends of today’s demanding consumers, these innovative chefs and owners do everything more nimbly and efficiently—from the recipes they create to the wines and craft beers they stock, from the presentations they choreograph to the customized training they give their servers, making restaurants more popular and profitable than ever before. Finally, Damian takes readers behind the scenes of his annual, invitation-only culinary tour for top chefs and industry CEOs, showing us how today’s elite restaurants embrace new trends to create unforgettable meals and transform how we eat. From the glittering nightclubs of Las Vegas to a packed seasonal restaurant on the Long Island Sound, from Brennan’s storied, family-run New Orleans dynasty to today’s high-stakes celebrity chef palaces, The Underground Culinary Tour takes readers on an epicurean adventure they won’t soon forget.

This book is about the creative work of chefs at top restaurants in New York and San Francisco. Based on interviews with chefs and observation in restaurant kitchens, the book explores the question of how and why chefs make choices about the dishes they put on their menus. It answers this question by examining a whole range of areas, including chefs' careers, restaurant ratings and reviews, social networks, how chefs think about food and go about creating new dishes, and how status influences their work and careers. Chefs at top restaurants face competing pressures to deliver complex and creative dishes, and navigate market forces to run a profitable business in an industry with exceptionally high costs and low profit margins. Creating a distinctive and original culinary style allows them to stand out in the market, but making the familiar food that many customers want ensures that they can stay in business. Chefs must make choices between these competing pressures. In explaining how they do so, this book uses the case study of high cuisine to analyze, more generally, how people in creative occupations navigate a context that is rife with uncertainty, high pressures, and contradicting forces.

After many decades, if not centuries, of neglect of fine food and high-level restaurants in Britain, we are seeing a massive explosion of interest in food, cooking, and dining out. Christel Lane's book charts the process of this transformation and examines top contemporary restaurants and their chefs. The Cultivation of Taste presents a comparative study of Michelin-starred restaurants in Britain and Germany, focusing on two countries without an indigenous haute cuisine but which nevertheless have developed internationally reputed fine-dining sectors, and comparing their development to the fine-dining culture in France. Written from a sociological perspective, chefs are portrayed as part of a complex network, in their relationships with their employees, their customers, gastronomic critics, suppliers of food, and even their financiers. It will appeal to academics in the areas of economic and cultural sociology, and those with an interest in small entrepreneurial firms and their work relations, but also to all those who have an interest in fine-dining restaurants and the chef patrons at the centre of them. The book draws on a large number of interviews with renowned chefs, diners, and Michelin inspectors to provide an unprecedented insight into what goes on in Michelin-starred restaurants—what makes their chefs tick, intrigues their critics, and beguiles or annoys their customers. Restaurants are viewed not simply as businesses but as cultural enterprises that shape our taste in food, ambience, and sociality.

It is fall of 2015, and Jake is a line cook—or at least he was, until he and his entire team were let go from their jobs following a suspected E.coli outbreak traced to their restaurant. Jake—who has always been a stickler for food safety—suspects that the outbreak is actually part of a larger problem that the news has been referring to as The Event, a series of changes encompassing dramatic shifts in weather and decline in the integrity of the nation’s food supply. The deaths were in fact caused by a new deadly strain of bacteria, and its reach is expanding, affecting people all over the United States. As the Event sweeps the country, killing first thousand and then tens of thousands, Jake recalls his culinary career—particularly his life with fellow chef, Carla—and struggles desperately to determine how he can make a difference. A novel based on the reality of our food supply’s truly fragile nature, The Event That Changed Everything explores environmental issues, farming, and restaurant life through the eyes of two chefs doing their best to meet the challenges of a changing world.

Back in the 1990s when vegetarianism was not as popular as it is today, Reggi Burnett started a restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in an effort to introduce people to nutritious dishes full of flavor and richness. Adam's Table served vegetarian and vegan dishes to its patrons, all of who raved about the “best tasting, healthiest food of any restaurant.” Even meat-eaters praised the restaurant for its delicious food, including a reporter for The Albuquerque Journal, who wrote, “Beware of eating at Adam's Table. It just may change your life…. It's enough to make you want to go vegetarian permanently. It was enough to make us—die hard beefers—sign up for Reggi's healthy vegetarian cooking classes.” Although the restaurant has since closed its doors, the recipes that made it a hit are captured in this cookbook for all to enjoy. The cookbook features recipes in the following categories: Dressings and Seasonings; Soups, Salads, and Vegetables; Main Dishes and Casseroles; Southwest Style Main Dishes; Breads and Breakfast; Pies, Pastry, and Desserts.
