Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook

We’re officially at the height of cookbook season, with fresh releases dropping almost daily. Today brings one of the year’s most anticipated titles, Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook (Little, Brown & Company), from the restlessly ambitious restaurant that has made an assured climb into New York City’s highest stratum of dining. The book beams with an airy and pristine design that makes the photographs of Daniel Humm’s intricate food sparkle like stained glass. Among the challenging, seasonally sorted recipes are essays by general manager Will Guidara, which chronicle the restaurant’s journey from a casual brasserie to a four-star destination and the winner of the JBF Award for Outstanding Restaurant. It also reads like a manual to Danny Meyer’s signature approach to the restaurant business, with lessons on subjects like excellence, collaboration, and reinvention. Even cooks who may not be up for tackling uni bavarois or peanut butter palette will be engrossed by this cookbook and its inspiring story.

To celebrate the release of Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook, we’re giving away five copies that are autographed by Humm and Guidara. For a chance to win, tell us what inspires you in the kitchen. You can leave your answer in a comment below, in a tweet (use hashtag #JBF11MadPark), or on our Facebook page. We will notify the five lucky winners next week.
