Summary: "A very beautiful and deeply personal cookbook. Quite simply beautiful food - wide-ranging, inspiring, and infused with an enlivening and generous sensibility. Combined with his captivating visuals that highlight the beauty of the food he presents, his personal journey is part of a larger ever-changing culinary landscape that takes all of our struggles and fractured selves to weave a new, uniquely American tapestry of beautiful food. This book is full of mouthwatering recipes that home cooks will actually make and dozens of Nik's breathtaking, low-light images that sit at the intersection of food photography and fine art. More than providing 100 thoughtful recipes, however, Nik encourages us to connect the dots between our cultural foods, memories, and current geographic location so we may also cultivate a way of cooking and eating that represents who we truly are. The best cookbooks are those with an unmistakable voice. 'Mine is the story of a gay immigrant, told through food, ' is how Nik Sharma opens Season, and he tells his story so beautifully. I can't think of another cookbook that takes you not only to Bombay and Oakland, but also to science labs in Cincinnati and D.C., and a farm in Virginia. Memorable food is the string that Nik uses to tie all of these seemingly disparate places together and, in doing so, he shares himself"--Provided by publisher.
