The Washington Post On Our Book KITCHEN CREATIVITY: “One of the Best Cookbooks of 2017”

Monday, December 11, 2017

“Author Karen Page…achieves a substantial feat in condensing what motivates dozens of America’s greatest chefs, including José Andrés, Patrick O’Connell of the Inn at Little Washington and Rasika’s Vikram Sunderam.”
–Bonnie Benwick, The Washington Post, in naming KITCHEN CREATIVITY one of “The Best Cookbooks of 2017”

We’re traveling at the moment, conducting research for and shooting our forthcoming book THE FLAVOR ATLAS (Little, Brown) — but we wouldn’t be surprised if you could hear or sense our delight to discover today that The Washington Post had featured our new book KITCHEN CREATIVITY on its list today of “The Best Cookbooks of 2017.”

Our heartfelt thanks to Washington Post editor Bonnie S. Benwick, who explains that KITCHEN CREATIVITY is a “book about cooking and not quite a cookbook,” making it an outlier on the list to which she names it regardless — no doubt understanding that creativity is the result of “not copying,” and that to spur it make take an unconventional approach.

Congratulations to the other books named to The Washington Post‘s list of “The Best Cookbooks of 2017,” which you can find here.

KITCHEN CREATIVITY has been named to several 2017 holiday gift lists and lists of “The Best Cookbooks of 2017,” which we have apparently had a hard time tracking during our recent travels — but which we will look forward to catching up on fully when we’re back home in New York City (or feel free to let us know what we might have missed)!  They include:

The Washington Post‘s celebrated Food section has been a multiple-time James Beard Award winner for “Best Newspaper Food Section.”
