"An American Place Cookbook"$29.00
Larry Forgione has often been called the “godfather of American cuisine.” In 1983, Forgione opened his first restaurant, An American Place on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, with one goal – to put American food on the map. Forgione committed himself to using only domestic ingredients at the restaurant, the name for which had been suggested by his late mentor and friend, culinary legend James Beard. An American Place earned 3 stars from The New York Times and established Forgione as a champion of regional, seasonal American food. This culinary visionary was largely responsible for the rebirth of farmers' markets across America and the availability of such quality ingredients as free-range chicken and the field green salad. Forgione’s An American Place Cookbook was the recipient of the James Beard "Best American Cookbook Award." Offering a First Edition copy.
