"The Lutece Cookbook"$45.00
Lutèce, the famed French restaurant in Manhattan, played a crucial role in the culinary development of the United States almost from the moment it opened its doors in 1961. André Soltner, who was the chef for 34 years and the owner for most of that time, was one of the first chefs in America to emphasize the freshest possible ingredients. While his nightly specials often included rustic dishes from his native Alsace, like a puffy onion tart, Mr. Soltner's cuisine evoked the classic elegance of the Old World.
In the September 2011 issue of Bon Appètit magazine, editors picked The Lutèce Cookbook among the half-dozen cookbooks “we all should be cooking from.” Here is a record of all the wondrous dishes with which Andre Soltner, chef-proprietor of Lutèce and one of the gods of cuisine, dazzled his faithful customers. Now that Lutèce has closed, this remarkable cookbook is all the more valuable, for it enables you to bring Soltner into your kitchen, and to create with him masterpieces that, but for The Lutèce Cookbook, would be only memories. Offering a rare First Edition copy.
