Project258 is a new book from James Beard Award winning chef, Zak Pelaccio who owns the Fish & Game restaurant in Hudson, New York.
Fish & Game is known for a local approach to ingredient sourcing and the team have built hundreds of direct connections with farmers in their pursuit for delicious dishes. They're also known for their democratic approach to kitchen hierachy and for being a restaurant operated by a crew of chefs.
Project258: Making Dinner at Fish & Game, created in collaboration with writer/photographer Peter Barrett, focuses on the story of the restaurant: its birth, growth and constant endeavour to constantly improve ingredients and questions what ‘farm-to-table’ actually means.
Billed as ‘part cookbook, part guidebook’, Project258 focuses as much on suppliers as Zak and his team’s transformation of ingredients through impressive technique.
For those who enjoy the genuine craft of cooking, Project258 is one for the shelf.
