Come Together – The World’s Finest Chefs is a downloadable eBook containing 100 recipes from the world’s best kitchen maestros to help people cook their way through these challenging times.
Written and compiled by award winning gastronomy writer Flavel Monteiro it contains 340 pages of recipes from 84 chefs from 6 continents, 31 countries, with over 50 Michelin stars, and representing some of the best restaurants from Brazil to Australia, including From Spain’s Elena Arzak and Japan’s Yoshihiro Narisawa to Norway’s Mikael Svensson and India’s Niyati Rao.
Flavel came up with the idea of putting a collection of recipes out in the world back in March when he saw the news of the coronavirus outbreak and the devastating effect it was having on communities around the world. Monteiro resolved to put this immense project together, from concept to publishing in only three weeks, in time for Easter.
“I saw people all around me who were taking shelter in their homes against this invisible enemy and my colleagues in the restaurant industry suffering. I was inspired to find a way for all of us to join together in solidarity with those on the front lines of this battle, and connect as one in a celebration of something that we can share—great food!“
With a forward by Arzak and introductions by Courtney Brandt, Frank M. Pfaller and Doug Singer to work is a huge collection of recipes donated by the best and will be an invaluable resource to foodies and chefs around the world, long after the coronavirus crisis has subsided and we move towards a a more united future – together.
