A unique blend of rustic Italian and modern California cuisine, from legendary chef Jonathan Waxman's beloved Barbuto restaurant. There are very few New York City restaurants that have maintained their currency, quality, and charm for as long as Jonathan Waxman's Barbuto. For the ﬁrst time ever, in The Barbuto Cookbook, Jonathan Waxman invites home cooks into the history, culture, and cuisine of the West Village dining spot that became both a neighborhood favorite and a New York City culinary destination. Waxman and his team provide the necessary tools for re-creating Barbuto classics, including the famous JW Chicken, the otherworldly Kale Salad, Barbuto Potatoes, specialty pizzas and pastas, spectacular desserts, inventive cocktails, and much more. Every recipe is a ﬂavorful restaurant showstopper adapted for straightforward preparation at home. The Barbuto Cookbook is a love letter to dining out and eating well, a chance to re-create a restaurant experience that New York magazine's Grub Street called "literally perfect."
