Juan Mari Arzak is the owner and chef of Arzak restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain, and was one of the first Spanish chefs to be awarded 3 Michelin stars. The restaurant is now rated 8th best in the world, and Juan's daughter Elena, who cooks with him, was voted best female chef in the world in 2012. They both studied with the great chefs of their day - Juan in France with Paul Bocuse and the Troisgros brothers; Elena with Alain Ducasse, Ferran Adrìa and Pierre Gagnaire. 'What we eat, how we eat, is in our culture,' says Elena, 'our signature cuisine is Basque. Our taste is from here. We were born here. We cook unconsciously with this identity.' Thus Arzak is considered to be one of the most influential masters of the New Basque cuisine, which has continued to have a major influence on international cuisine, particularly on such world renowned chefs as Ferran Adrià, who took the techniques pioneered by Arzak to new heights.Originally published in Spanish and now available in English for the first time Arzak Secrets is THE behind the scenes recipe and technique book from the world famed restaurant. Gorgeously photographed, this volume is a glimpse at some of the secrets behind the dishes that have made the restaurant and chef famous. Arzak's kitchen is a laboratory for flavors, aromas and textures, and his dishes and techniques are revealed in this fascinating cookbook, which is not only for professionals looking for inspiration but for any dedicated cook committed to understanding the creative development and innovations behind this exceptional food.

While there is a layered complexity to world-renowned chef Peter Gilmore's ethereal - yet grounded - cuisine, his philosophy of cooking is relatively simple. Just four elements are required to create perfect unison in a dish: nature, texture, intensity and purity. In his new book, Peter invites the reader to share in his private obsession with nature - when not in the kitchen at Sydney's Quay restaurant, he is working in his experimental garden where he grows a huge array of edible plant species. Each component of a plant, from sweet, earthy roots to bitter fronds and fragrant blossoms, is potentially destined for inclusion in one of the 40 exquisite dishes featured here. Peter also introduces us to the many influences on his cooking, and to the people who grow, catch and source key ingredients. Images include intensely beautiful food and ingredient shots, as well as producers and produce photographed on location.
