A Game-Changing Chef Redefines a Classic American Cuisine
IACP and James Beard Award Finalist
Named a Best Cookbook of the Year by the Los Angeles Times, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Rachael Ray Every Day, and Fine Cooking
In his debut cookbook, chef Matt Jennings honors the iconic foods of his heritage and celebrates the fresh ingredients that have come to define his renowned, inventive approach to cooking. With four James Beard Award nominations for Best Chef: Northeast, three Cochon 555 wins, and a spot on Food & Wine’s 40 Big Food Thinkers 40 and Under list, Jennings is a culinary innovator known for his unexpected uses of traditional northern ingredients (maple syrup glazes a roasted duck; a molasses and cider barbecue sauce makes the perfect accompaniment to grilled chicken wings; carbonara takes on a northern slant with the addition of razor clams).
STUDIO NOTES I'm lucky to call Matt a friend. He is incredibly vocal about making sure the hospitality industry becomes friendlier to a healthy lifestyle. Homegrown is an ode to New England cooking that pulls from his roots for this book which is truly meant for home cooking. -Keith
