Knives & Ink: Chefs and the Stories Behind Their Tattoos Book
$7.20 USD $24.00 USD
From the authors of Pen & Ink–New York Times bestselling illustrator Wendy MacNaughton and BuzzFeed books editor Isaac Fitzgerald–the stories behind the tattoos that chefs proudly wear, with their signature recipes. Chefs take their tattoos almost as seriously as their knives.
From gritty grill cooks in backwoods diners to the executive chefs at the world’s most popular restaurants, it’s hard to find a cook who doesn’t sport some ink. Knives & Ink features the tattoos of more than sixty-five chefs from all walks of life and every kind of kitchen, including 2014 James Beard Award-winner Jamie Bissonnette, Alaska-fishing-boat cook Mandy Lamb, Chicago's Heritage Restaurant & Caviar Bar's Alec Sherman, and many more.
Like the dishes these chefs have crafted over the years, these tattoos are beautiful works of art. Knives & Ink delves into the wide and wonderful world of chef tattoos and shares their fascinating backstories, along with personal recipes from many of the chefs.
