Title: Something to Food About

Author: Questlove (Ahmir Thompson)

Summary from Publisher:

Questlove is a drummer, producer, musical director, culinary entrepreneur, and New York Times best-selling author. What unites all of his work is a profound interest in creativity. In somethingtofoodabout, Questlove applies his boundless curiosity to the world of food. In conversations with ten innovative chefs in America, he explores what makes their creativity tick, how they see the world through their cooking and how their cooking teaches them to see the world. The conversations begin with food but they end wherever food takes them. Food is fuel. Food is culture. Food is history. And food is food for thought.

Featuring conversations with: Nathan Myhrvold, Modernist Cuisine Lab, Seattle;  Daniel Humm, Eleven Madison Park, and NoMad, NYC;  Michael Solomonov, Zahav, Philadelphia; Ludo Lefebvre, Trois Mec, L.A.; Dave Beran, Next, Chicago; Donald Link, Cochon, New Orleans;  Dominque Crenn, Atelier Crenn, San Francisco;  Daniel Patterson, Coi and Loco’l, San Francisco; Jesse Griffiths, Dai Due, Austin; and Ryan Roadhouse, Nodoguro, Portland.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed the interviews, but not the Modern Art Photography between the interviews. I’m not into modern art. If you like reading about what inspires chefs, I recommend this book. If you’re into modern are photography, I recommend checking out this book.

Clara’s Kitchen reminded me of my Italian great-grandmother for some reason. Maybe it’s because Clara was a first generation Italian-America, whose parents came over from Italy. Anyways, enjoy my video book review:

Clara has her own YouTube channel! I’m slowly watching all the videos. You can find it here.

It’s been a few weeks since my last video. Having more time between videos equals more progress to show off. I may go to every other week videos.
