Signature Dishes That Matter – Cookbook Giveaway

Enter to win a copy of Signature Dishes That Matter by Pat Nourse, Susan Jung, Christine Muhlke, Howie Kahn and Andea Petrini in our giveaway below. Please note: Eat Your Book members receive 30% off Phaidon titles when using the link provided.

In September, Darcie reported on a piece written about this impressive title. A celebration of iconic restaurant dishes that defined the course of culinary history over the past 300 years is collected within the covers of Signature Dishes That Matter. Each dish shares a stunning illustration and narrative that details the creation, origin or other facts about the particular recipe (as seen in the image below). The full written recipe can be found in the rear of the book as indicated by the page number which can be found to the side of the illustration.

In the pages of this gorgeous book are the closely held secrets behind the world’s signature recipes – dishes that put restaurants on the map, from 19th-century fine dining and popular classics to today’s most innovative kitchens, both high-end and casual. Curated by experts and organized chronologically, it’s both a landmark cookbook and a fascinating cultural history of dining out that every cook will want in their collection. The reader will spend hours lost in recipes from greats such as Yotam Ottolenghi, Pierre Hermé, Nobu Matsuhisa and hundreds of other global iconic chefs.

Our EYBDPreviewButton takes you inside this fascinating book and shares fiveEYBD Recipe Button set out below and other sample pages from this book.

    There’s no question about it, as soon as I saw Peking duck I knew that was the one to choose. I love Peking duck, the taste is fantastic but I have no idea how to make it – with this cook book I could make it as often as I liked. 🙂
