Cookbook Review: Relæ

A chefs dream of short essays51AKo+BdKAL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

Unconventional, non-traditional, story telling at it’s finest. This is more than a cook book full of recipes and measurements, this is a glimpse into the practice and philosophies behind Puglisis’ kitchen magic. Read at your own speed- each recipe is interconnected but stands on it’s own but has it’s own magical, deeply personal, story.

Relæ was opened by Chef Christian F. Puglisi in 2010 in one of Copenhagen’s most crime-ridden areas. He had one simple goal, to serve impeccable, intelligent, sustainable, and plant-centric food of the highest quality. His approach was simple, forget focusing only on the frills and serve amazing food.

More of an essay read than a recipe book, but ingenious and engaging.
