Top Chefs Reveal Secrets to Culinary Success

Chef’s Choice is a collection of 22 mini memoirs that is at once an inspiration for aspiring student, professional, and home chefs as well as an insightful and entertaining behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to succeed in the hyper-competitive restaurant and hospitality industry. Since Saori Kawano opened Korin Japanese Trading, a NYC restaurant supply company, in 1982, she has made friends with many of the world’s most accomplished chefs, several of whom agreed to share with her the elements that make up their culinary and business success. In their own words, these kitchen luminaries tell about their influences and mentors, the techniques and Japanese ingredients that inspire them, tools they can’t work without, their unflagging devotion to the most stringent standards of service, and the pivotal role Japanese food culture has played in their cuisine and professional development. Like no other book, Chef’s Choice explains how Japanese food culture has changed culinary education and set new standards for Western cuisine, professional kitchens, and the modern dining experience.

Epicurious​ Gift Guide Pick!

by Wendy on December 2, 2016

Matt Duckor (Senior Editor at Epicurious​) Gift Guide Pick! Misono UX10 Honesuki 5.6″ and Misono UX10 Gyutou Chef’s Knife 8.2″ – “Japanese knives are usually only sharpened on one side, making them suited for tight and precise cuts but not for general use. These, however, are a hybrid of Eastern and Western styles, making them the best of both worlds.”
