The Masters at Home: Recipes, Stories & Photographs deserves ongoing mention and recommendation as a fine synthesis of stories, recipes and photos centered around master chefs from around the world who share their three favorite recipes here. These enjoy photos by David Loftus in a collection that includes the chef's background, snapshots from their homes, and details on their cooking; so don't expect just a collection of recipes, but something that toes the line between autobiography, culinary history, and recipe book. Loftus's full-page and smaller color photos pepper nearly every page while dishes such as Frozen Pea Puree and hearty lamb and barley Scotch Broth will prove easily accessible to home cooks. The result is a fine survey recommended for any culinary collection.
