Do you ever wonder what the best restaurants in the world feed their staff before they feed you?

I have worked in some of these places and eaten many a staff meal and can attest to the wide range of what cooks and servers eat behind the scenes. While cooking in France, we ate roasted pigeon and vegetables from the garden, while cooking in New York City we each were responsible for preparing something and the offerings were elaborate, while cooking in upstate New York the pickings were sometimes uninspiring and sometimes pretty good. It is all lead by the culture of the restaurant.

My culinary school classmate and friend, Christine Carroll, just released a new book that takes you behind the scenes to some of the best restaurants in the world to show you what they feed their “family.”

Inside are stories and recipes from the top rated restaurants in the world, like the Fat Duck in the UK!

Or one of my personal favorites and where I spent Christmas Eve dinner last year, St. John in London.

Oh how the kitchen men like their tattoos…

These recipes are accessible for the home cook, no crazy food pyrotechnics needed.

You’ll take a peek inside Mugaritz in Spain.

And get a taste of their cuisine. Gosh I wish someone had fed me this back in the day.

And you’ll read behind the scenes interviews about the chefs and their philosophies. This photo is from Annisa in New York City.

Wow.

You will love this book, whether you’re interested in the restaurant culture around the world or…

…simply delicious recipes as they’re prepared by the pros for their families.
