Eating with the Chefs goes behind the scenes at staff meals.

It’s the latest cookbook to go behind the scenes at some of the world’s leading restaurants and chronicle the humble staff meal.

Shot by Swedish photographer and editor Per-Anders Jorgensen, Eating with the Chefs is a photographic documentary of family meals shared between staff members at kitchens like El Celler de Can Roca, Le Chateaubriand, Noma, Mugaritz and The French Laundry.

Jorgensen is well-known among foodie intellectuals for helming culinary magazine Fool.

The book features 200 colour photographs and includes 50 recipes of staff meals like apple compote with apple streusel topping, eaten at The French Laundry; brownies from Noma; and wd-50’s version of the Big Mac.

Spanish chef Ferran Adrià also published a cookbook of recipes inspired by some of the staff meals shared at his legendary, now-shuttered restaurant elBulli. Recipes in The Family Meal: Home Cooking with Ferran Adrià include roast chicken and potato straws and baked apples with whipped cream.

Eating with the Chefs is published by Phaidon Press and will be released on April 28 for €49 (RM220). – AFP Relaxnews
