More than any other chef at work today, Michel Nischan creates sophisticated, modern food by embracing the food tenets of the past: use what's readily available, celebrate variety, respect the land and eschew waste. Whether it's explaining the virtues of secondary meat cuts, which fish are in least danger of overfishing or how heritage bean and grain varieties help to support biodiversity as well as healthy diets, this cookbook proves that the most satisfying food comes from a passionate respect for America's culinary and environmental legacy.
