Visionary, charismatic master chef, Ludo Lefebvre, and his Los Angeles cult hit “pop-up” restaurant LudoBites are worshipped by critics and foodies alike. LudoBites, the book, is at once a chronicle and a cookbook, containing tales of the meteoric career of this “rock star” of the culinary world (who was running kitchens at age 24) and the full story of his brilliant innovation, the “pop up” or “touring” restaurant that moves from place to place. The star of the popular cable program, Ludo Bites America, on the Sundance Channel, also offers phenomenal four-star recipes born out of the need to be mobile. Readers who love food, who admire genius, and fans of TV’s Top Chef, Top Chef Masters, and Iron Chef are going to want a taste of LudoBites.

The cookbook chronicles of the visionary, charismatic chef Ludo Lefebvre and his cult hit pop-up restaurant, LudoBites, worshiped by critics and foodies alike. Ludo Lefebvre is a culinary prodigy who worked at his first three-star Michelin restaurant at age fourteen. By twenty-five he was running his own kitchen in Los Angeles—winning accolades for serving the most imaginative, forward-thinking food the city had ever seen. In 2007, he traded fine dining—with its endless pomp and bottomless resources—for the freedom to cook outside the box, even if it meant sacrificing his skilled kitchen brigade and drafting an eight-year-old to clean green beans and separate eggs. The result was LudoBites, a "touring" restaurant that, like a rock 'n' roll band, roved the streets of Los Angeles, playing to different sold-out crowds every four months, bringing together old-money customers with a new generation of ambitious eaters who cram in elbow to elbow and cheek to cheek for the chance to sample Lefebvre's inspired, wildly imaginative food. LudoBites is the chronicle of that journey. Each chapter showcases the story and the outrageously inventive food of the seven different LudoBites incarnations, featuring recipes that merge the techniques Lefebvre perfected in his years at the finest French restaurants with the simplicity forced upon him by the limits of a pop-up kitchen. Essays prefacing each chapter give an unprecedented glimpse into the mind of "the chef of the future" (Time), a culinary genius who breaks all the rules, and beautiful, full-color photographs offer behind-the-scenes glimpses of the pain, drama, and triumph inherent in his creative process. As innovative and inviting as the unique chef it captures, LudoBites is a fascinating look at food and a revolutionary new way of cooking.

For top chef Ludo Lefebvre, cooking is a sensual process that involves all five senses at every stage of preparation. In Crave, Lefebvre offers more than one hundred original, elegant, and unbelievably delicious recipes that teach us the joy -- and skill -- of cooking with the senses. In dishes such as his signature Glazed Langoustines with Ceylon Cinnamon, he shows that through our senses we can bring creativity and a sense of playfulness to cooking while still preserving the great traditions behind cuisine. Lefebvre brings a whole new level to the sense of taste with groundbreaking techniques for contrasting and balancing spices; he shows how to choose meat and produce and how to test food through touch; he teaches the difference between the sound of butter and oil that's ready for cooking and the sound of burning; he offers visual cues that can enhance technique and presentation; and he introduces recipes that tantalize the powerful sense of smell to heighten both the flavor and experience of a dish. Along with his desire to put delightful recipes into the hands of the home chef, Lefebvre wants us to expand our perception and understanding of the cooking process. "I want people to cook with love. I want them to be aware of what they're doing," says Lefebvre. "The act of cooking can be as much of a pleasure as eating, and if you really cook with your senses, you begin to find that cooking isn't work -- it's play." These inspiring recipes will encourage you to slow down and become fully absorbed as you learn to cook with and for all five senses: See: Oysters on the Half Shell with Red Beet Jelly and Shallot Cream Touch: Fried Stuffed Tomato Beignets Smell: Chicken Etouffée in Dried Verbena and Curry Leaves Hear: Roast Beef with Long Pepper and Spiced French Fries Taste: Lemon Sorbet with Saffron With Lefebvre's highly original interpretation of French cuisine and his sensual, almost spiritual, approach to every culinary endeavor, Crave invites us to make home cooking a rich, sensual, and rewarding experience.

In this authoritative and immensely readable insider’s account, celebrated cookbook author and former chef Joyce Goldstein traces the development of California cuisine from its formative years in the 1970s to 2000, when farm-to-table, foraging, and fusion cooking had become part of the national vocabulary. Interviews with almost two hundred chefs, purveyors, artisans, winemakers, and food writers bring to life an approach to cooking grounded in passion, bold innovation, and a dedication to “flavor first.” Goldstein explains how the counterculture movement in the West gave rise to a restaurant culture characterized by open kitchens, women in leadership positions, and a surprising number of chefs and artisanal food producers who lacked formal training. The new cuisine challenged the conventional kitchen hierarchy and French dominance in fine dining, leading to a more egalitarian and informal food scene. In weaving Goldstein’s views on California food culture with profiles of those who played a part in its development—from Alice Waters to Bill Niman to Wolfgang Puck—Inside the California Food Revolution demonstrates that, while fresh produce and locally sourced ingredients are iconic in California, what transforms these elements into a unique cuisine is a distinctly Western culture of openness, creativity, and collaboration. Engagingly written and full of captivating anecdotes, this book shows how the inspirations that emerged in California went on to transform the experience of eating throughout the United States and the world.

Los Angeles: A patchwork megalopolis defined by its unlikely cultural collisions; the city that raised and shaped Roy Choi, the boundary-breaking chef who decided to leave behind fine dining to feed the city he loved—and, with the creation of the Korean taco, reinvented street food along the way. Abounding with both the food and the stories that gave rise to Choi's inspired cooking, L.A. Son takes us through the neighborhoods and streets most tourists never see, from the hidden casinos where gamblers slurp fragrant bowls of pho to Downtown's Jewelry District, where a ten-year-old Choi wolfed down Jewish deli classics between diamond deliveries; from the kitchen of his parents' Korean restaurant and his mother's pungent kimchi to the boulevards of East L.A. and the best taquerias in the country, to, at last, the curbside view from one of his emblematic Kogi taco trucks, where people from all walks of life line up for a revolutionary meal. Filled with over 85 inspired recipes that meld the overlapping traditions and flavors of L.A.—including Korean fried chicken, tempura potato pancakes, homemade chorizo, and Kimchi and Pork Belly Stuffed Pupusas—L.A. Son embodies the sense of invention, resourcefulness, and hybrid attitude of the city from which it takes its name, as it tells the transporting, unlikely story of how a Korean American kid went from lowriding in the streets of L.A. to becoming an acclaimed chef.
