I Love New York: Ingredients and Recipes
Daniel Humm, Will Guidara
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
From the acclaimed team behind Manhattan's three-Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park restaurant comes this deluxe cookbook showcasing the foods, ingredients, and culinary history of New York.
After landing rave reviews for their transformation of Eleven Madison Park from a French brasserie into a fine dining restaurant, chef Daniel Humm and general manager Will Guidara decided to refashion Manhattan’s ultimate destination restaurant into a showcase for New York’s food artisans. Instead of looking abroad for inspiration, Humm and Guidara headed to their own backyards, exploring more than fifty farms in the greater New York area and diving into the city’s rich culinary heritage as a cultural melting pot.
In I Love New York, Humm and Guidara present an in-depth look at the region’s centuries-old farming traditions along with nearly 150 recipes that highlight its outstanding ingredients—from apples, celery root, and foie gras to nettles, pork, scallops, and venison. Included among these dishes designed explicitly for the home cook are reinterpretations of New York classics, like Oyster Pan Roast, Manhattan Clam Chowder, and the Bloody Mary. Lushly illustrated with photographs of the area’s dramatic landscapes and the farmers who tend the land, this unique ode introduces the concept of New York regional cuisine as it celebrates the bounty of this exceptional state.

Travis Burrows, the farm manager, explains that “by feeding them protein-rich grasses, we keep our animals healthy.” He says that when in top physical condition, “sheep breed naturally when the daylight is short and give birth from February through April.” However, Old Chatham maintains an unusual schedule, only breeding the herd from May to August. They do this so their ewes will give birth in the fall and lactate in the winter, guaranteeing sufficient milk production
Strolling through her two-hundred-acre property in the Catskills, Sherry Shaver traces the footsteps made by her great-grandfather, Fred D. Shaver, who bought the land in 1963. He moved there and started a dairy farm that lasted only four years before a trout-farming hobby turned into a passion and, eventually, a vocation. Sherry lovingly describes the estate as “one of the last untouched places on earth.” While stunning forest views surround her property, it is the waterways that have
