Chrisitan Puglisi's debut cookbook Relæ: A Book of Ideas is a intimate look at how one of Scandinavia's top chefs goes about creating the recipes that have made him famous.
Puglisi, who was born in Sicily but was raised in Denmark, is known for the wildly inventive plant-centric cuisine he dishes at his restaurants Relæ and Manfreds in Copenhagen. A Noma alumni, the chef subscribes to the philosophy of local, sustainable, seasonal foods prepared with the outmost care.
Relæ: A Book of Ideas isn't an ordinary cookbook, instead of recipes it offers ''idea essays'' which slowly reveal the ingredients and techniques of Puglisi's trademark cooking. Each essay is connected a series of dishes and readers are invited to read them in any order.
The book, which has become an Amazon #1 bestseller in Scandinavian Cooking, is essential for anyone desiring to master modern Scandinavian cuisine. It is available for purchase on Amazon.
