Karen Page - Kitchen Creativity (Sausalito)

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - 6:00pm

Beyond a cookbook, Kitchen Creativity is a paradigm-shifting guide to inventive cooking (without recipes ) that will inspire you to think, improvise, and cook like the world's best chefs.

Great cooking is as much about intuition and imagination as it is about flavor and technique. Here Karen Page distills brilliant insights into creative processes from more than 100 top restaurant kitchens, including the Bazaar, Blue Hill, Daniel, Dirt Candy, Eleven Madison Park and the NoMad, Gramercy Tavern, the Inn at Little Washington, Le Bernardin, Oleana, Rustic Canyon, Saison, Single Thread, and Topolobampo. Based on four years of extensive research and dozens of in-depth interviews, Page illuminates the method (and occasional madness) of culinary invention.  The ultimate reference for culinary brainstorming, this new title will spur your creativity to new heights, both in the kitchen and beyond.

Author Karen Page and photographer Andrew Dornenburg have been described as "perhaps the most influential and important of all food writers working today" (KLAV Radio), having created "many definitive guides" (Wall Street Journal) and "some of the most important books on cooking" (Good Food, KCRW/NPR), "making their mark with books that bring us inside the craft and life of America's chefs and their restaurants" (The Splendid Table, NPR).Drawing on a shared passion for food, as well as previous careers as a creativity and strategy consultant to Fortune 500 companies (Page) and as a restaurant chef (Dornenburg), the duo's thought-provoking books are often fueled by creative pursuits outside the kitchen, from Harvard Business School's famed creativity course to a dance company's advisory board. Their books have been translated into multiple languages and received citations as sources of information and/or inspiration in numerous scholarly, fiction, nonfiction, and other creative works globally. Former Washington Post wine columnists who have run six marathons between them, the married couple lives in New York City.
