Vivid Recipes From the Heart of Los AngelesBook - 2017
"The first time chef Josef Centeno stepped into a tiny storefront in the Historic Core neighborhood of Los Angeles, he knew it was the right place for his first restaurant, Bäco Mercat. It had tall ceilings and remnants of marble and brass--the badges of a glorious space in a more-than-century-old building. But it was his bold flavors, textures, and delicious compositions that drew Angelenos from all over the city and garnered national critical acclaim. Centeno founded four more restaurants in the next few years on the same downtown block, all of them unique and all featuring his hallmark exhilarating menus--big on both imagination and flavor. No chef captures the excitement of L.A.'s incredible food scene like Centeno. This groundbreaking collection of recipes revolves around his unique combinations of ingredients and the inspiration he draws from cuisines of the world. They are dishes that will revolutionize your approach to cooking and spark creativity in your own home kitchen."--Jacket.
