Brooklyn Chef's Table

Extraordinary Recipes from Coney Island to Brooklyn Heights


Book Description

It’s become less of a trend to talk about how trendy the Brooklyn dining scene is, and just an accepted fact that from Crown Heights to Mill Basin, Prospect Heights to Bensonhurst, Brooklyn is home to some of the best and most varied and most destination-worthy restaurants, not just in New York City, but throughout the entire country. More than just a collection of recipes, Brooklyn Chef’s Table uncovers a Brooklyn expressed through that glorious medium, food. By reading the stories of the members of Brooklyn’s restaurant community, the ones that grew up here and never left, or that came from other countries in search of a dream, or merely migrated across the bridge in order to better articulate their craft, you’ll discover Brooklyn as it was, Brooklyn as it is, and Brooklyn as it will be, far into the foreseeable future. With recipes for the home cook from 60 of the borough's most celebrated eateries and showcasing over 200 full-color photos featuring mouth-watering dishes, famous chefs, and lots of local flavor, Brooklyn Chef's Table is the ultimate gift and keepsake cookbook for both tourists and New Yorkers.

About Zorn, Sarah

Sarah Zorn is a professional food writer, born, raised, and currently living in Brooklyn. Her unadulterated love for the borough (combined with her even more virulent obsession with eating), has led to various positions at multiple city-centric publications. She’s currently the food editor for Brooklyn Magazine and the L Magazine, associate editor at, food critic for Brooklyn Industry magazine, and a regular contributor to Every Day with Rachael Ray. Although Sarah has lived in Park Slope (before it was cool), Kensington (before it was cool), and Bay Ridge (before it was cool), she eventually moved to a far-flung corner of Bath Beach for the chance to own a fig tree, which she shares with the two loves of her life, her husband, Fred, and a hound dog mix named Rowdy.
