This ain’t your grandma’s recipe book. Following the success of the New York Times bestselling Top Chef: The Cookbook, the brainchildren behind Bravo’s hit show for foodies is back with Top Chef: The Quickfire Cookbook. This Top Chef sequel challenges the home cook to tackle a myriad of fine dining and street dishes from the winning quickfire recipes of the chef’testants over the first five seasons. Not only that, food lovers anywhere can bring the culinary smackdown to home kitchens with guides to classic quickfire challenges including the Mise-en-Place Relay race or the Blind Taste Test. Like any good book on food, the Top Chef Quickfire Cookbook features sidebars on techniques, ingredients, and menu ideas all in the flash-in-the-pan fashion that is Top Chef.  There’s even a short intro to molecular gastronomy if you wanna get really fancy. Top Chef: The Quickfire Cookbook is the perfect gift for the Top Chef wannabes in your life.
