"In very few places will you, all at once, encounter so many James Beard Award–winning chefs and so many food professionals who are committed to making dreams come true. In this book, for which editor Moushabeck and the publisher are donating a portion of proceeds to the ACLU in support of immigrants’ rights, more than 70 gourmet talents contribute 75 dishes from their native countries, covering a medley of cuisines from every continent but Antarctica. There are lots of recognizable names: Daniel Boulud (who contributes Lyonnaise salad with lardons), Australia’s Curtis Stone (Pavlova with coconut cream and tropical fruits), Cronut inventor Dominique Ansel (mini-madeleines), and Jamaica’s Ziggy Marley (coconut dream fish). Each profile-recipe features a straightforward bio and photo of the recipe’s inventor, an “in my own words” introduction about the dish and its origins, and an exquisite color photograph. Directions are written in narrative style, with ingredients posted on the side. A great collection that benefits from the incredible accomplishments of its contributors, and its excellent cause."
