[Karen] Page points out the patterns in how great dishes come about, encouraging readers to recognize the pressures and accidents that often result in something wonderful, as well as the self-reflection and experimentation required to get there.”
–Maggie Hoffman, in her review of KITCHEN CREATIVITY in Plate magazine

We’re delighted that our new book KITCHEN CREATIVITY: Unlocking Culinary Genius–with Wisdom, Inspiration, and Ideas from the World’s Most Creative Chefs was just named by Plate magazine’s Maggie Hoffman as one of the 11 best fall and winter cookbooks for chefs of 2017.

She writes, “This new tome from Karen Page, author of THE FLAVOR BIBLE, aims to spark chefs’ creativity. Page gathers insights both philosophical and practical from famed chefs: Kyle Connaughton of Sonoma’s Single Thread, for example, muses on the differing role of creativity in cooking in Japan and the US, while Tal Ronnen and Scot Jones of Crossroads in L.A. discuss the nuts-and-bolts development of their vegan ‘seafood’ tower. Page points out the patterns in how great dishes come about, encouraging readers to recognize the pressures and accidents that often result in something wonderful, as well as the self-reflection and experimentation required to get there.”
