A portrait of "Madison Chefs"
Christians's command of both the light and the substantial is key to making the newly released "Madison Chefs" the thoroughly engaging book that it is. "Madison Chefs" is a series of rich profiles of eight of Madison's leading chefs, illustrated by the gimlet-eyed photography of Chris Hynes. It turns on big personalities ... but it also revolves around big, bright flavors and culinary leaps of imagination, and those come through equally vividly in anecdotes, photos, and recipes.
A reader of “Madison Chefs” becomes aware not just of eight individual stories, but of the complex networks of friends, family, mentors, rivals, and apprentices who support the leading players.
