"The chef of the celebrity-filled restaurants Butter and The Darby in Manhattan, Alex earned her chops by cooking in some of the world's finest French restaurants, including the Michelin three-starred Guy Savoy in Paris and Daniel Boulud's flagship restaurant in New York City. But before she was any of these things, she was the daughter of the legendary cookbook editor Maria Guarnaschelli. Alex grew up devouring cookbooks and recipes the way other young girls read Nancy Drew novels. All of this makes OLD-SCHOOL COMFORT FOOD, the result of a lifelong love affair with food, her most precious project to date. Here are the recipes that taught Alex to cook, that piqued her in interest in food, and that continue to inspire her cooking today, both on and off camera. The dishes Alex returns to again and again have all the hallmarks of superb home cooking: they marry humble ingredients and familiar family-style preparations with techniques garnered from her remarkable culinary pedigree. Each page is infused with her fierce passion and knowledge, all conveyed in her deeply personal and engaging writing. This is a chef's cookbook that reads like a memoir, with 75 photos and 125 recipes home cooks will actually make and adore"--
