Based on his popular PBS TV program Avec Eric, this book follows culinary superstar Eric Ripert as he explores the culture and culinary traditions of regions around the world, then returns to his home kitchen to create dishes celebrating the bounty of each one. Mirroring the show's sense of adventure and deep appreciation for fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, this book is part travelogue, part cookbook, with 125 fresh, exciting recipes drawn from Ripert's journey through the culinary landscapes of regions from Tuscany to Sonoma to the Hudson River Valley. Food and travel photos throughout reflect Ripert's journey and highlight the inspirations behind each dish, while handwritten notes and hand-drawn illustrations give the book a uniquely personal feel.
