de Ignacio Mattos
Sobre o livro
And thanks toEstela, it’s food that you can easily make at home.Estela teaches us how to think like Ignacio Mattos—how to look at something as ordinary as a button mushroom and make it extraordinary (shaved thin over dumplings) or as familiar as burrata and transform it (with a pool of juiced herby greens and charred bread). Revealed here are the sources of so many of Estela’s surprising pops of flavor—the vinegars, citruses, and pickling broths. The aesthetic and practical reasons for presenting foods in neat circles. And the twoFs that are pillars of Ignacio’s approach to conceiving dishes: “Focus,” meaning only one or two main ingredients and a small supporting cast, and “F**kup Proof,” his technique of composing a dish so that every bite is a piece of the whole, carrying its electric marriage of flavors and textures.
Estela presents the complete roster of the restaurant’s great dishes and a new relaxed, creative approach to cooking.
