Welcome to My Kitchen (Inscribed by Chef Tom Valenti)


by Tom Valenti and Andrew Friedman, Harper Collins, first edition, 2001. Inscribed by Chef Valenti on the inside title page. Hardback with DJ.

For more than 20 years, Valenti has been considered one of New York's top chefs (he worked at Gotham Bar and Grill), known best for his robust Italian-tilting fare. On the opening of his restaurant, Ouest, New York Magazine raved: "Staking out the culinary wilderness north of Lincoln Center, Chef Tom Valenti is serving the west side's A-List a menu that's equal parts comfort food and four-star inspiration...." The color photo of his highly acclaimed braised lamb shanks on the back cover had me madly paging through the index; I made the dish the same day. VG+/VG+.
