Review

"cutting-edge gourmet wizard Daniel Humm has transformed his entire menu into an inventive Rubik's Cube of tasting delights."-- "New York" Magazine"Adam Platt" (01/01/2011)

"Eleven Madison Park gets better and better, ranking among the very best in the city."-- "Forbes"

"Eleven Madison Park now keeps company with Noma, the Fat Duck, Alinea and other restaurants that draw eaters from across the globe. All the tables in the high-ceilinged dining room have been booked four weeks ahead for more than a year."-- "The New York Times""Oliver Strand" (01/01/2010)

I was struck by the lightness, precision, and creativity of his work and became an instant admirer of hiscuisine. Today it is quite a privilege to have Daniel Humm in New York, notjust as one of our great chefs, but also as a great friend. His delicatecuisine is so well portrayed in this book, which showcases the passion andgenuine talent of a modern chef."--Daniel Boulud, Daniel, New York City


"Eleven Madison Park is currently one of the most elegant, delicious, and creative restaurants in the country, and the reason for that is the leadership and vision of Chef Humm. He has done what many of us in the culinary world aspire to do: craft an experience that tastes delicious, that is extremely creative, and most importantly, very personal. That is what has made him a leader in the industry and Eleven Madison one of the best restaurants in the United States." @font-face { font-family: "Cambria"; }@font-face { font-family: "Lucida Grande"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p.MsoAcetate, li.MsoAcetate, div.MsoAcetate { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 9pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }span.BalloonTextChar { font-family: "Lucida Grande"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; } "Grant Achatz, Alinea, Chicago

The restaurant's crowning achievement . . . may well be this, the jewel-like Eleven Madison Park cookbook, certainly the most beautiful cookbook released in 2011. It will look great sitting on the top shelf of your cookbook collection, alongside the cookbooks from Noma, the French Laundry and Alinea. Joe Satran, "Huffington Post""

"For those who haven't had a chance to visit the restaurant, "Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook" is the next best thing. The pictures in the book are about the size of a plate, and while you might not be able to taste or smell the food, the beauty of the photos will sort of make up for it." Lauren Torrisi, "ABCNews.com""

"[Chef Humm's] creations have audacity without excess. Page after page, Daniel invites us to discover his world where the kitchen is at the heart of a wonderful journey."
"Michel Troisgros, Maison Troisgros, Roanne
""

Eleven Madison Park is the perhaps most beautiful restaurant in New York . . . a fitting backdrop to Daniel Humm's spectacular modernist cuisine, which has just received its third Michelin star. The restaurant's polish and flair are reflected in "Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook," a sleek white behemoth with a silver-gray typeface and luscious photographs by Francesco Tonelli. Moira Hodgson, "The Wall Street Journal""

Simply put, this is a stunning cookbook.
Clear concise recipes, full chapters on recipes for sauces, purees, gels, sorbets, stocks etc. a layout of both kitchen and dining room, how the servers and chefs operate in these (flow of service etc), a full description of how the restaurant runs daily, plus some of the most amazing food photgraphy I have ever seen, all add up to the cookbook called 'Eleven Madison Park'.
This could one day be talked about in the same vein as, say, The French Laundry Cookbook, its that good.
Go and buy it, you'll never regret it.

I was blown away by ELEVEN MADISON PARK THE COOKBOOK for a number of reasons. There is no doubt that this is one special cookbook. However, I am going to be totally honest with you here. As impressive as this cookbook was to me,This book is sure a beautiful cookbook to explore for food lovers like me.

As intimidated as you could get by the recipes in this cookbook, you will feel a little better after reading the first few pages of this cookbook. There is a section entitled "How to Use This Book" which states:

...the question that has come up most frequently is "Will people actually be able to cook from this book?

The simple answer is yes-ish.
If you never cook, this is probably a book that should stay on your coffee table. Many recipes require a significant time commitment, a certain level of skill, a reasonably equipped kitchen, and a healthy dose of persistence."
With that being said, I don't think anybody but a skilled chef would be attempting any of these recipes any time soon (but it would be well worth the time & effort). So I'll just have to share with you some of my thoughts about ELEVEN MADISON PARK THE COOKBOOK:
The first part of the cookbook is used to introduce the executive chef Daniel Humm and the general manager Will Guidara. There is also some history about the restaurant which I found very interesting. Needless to say, I'm now dying to visit Eleven Madison Park. I'm sure it's a once in a lifetime culinary experience!
Then it was on to the recipes for me! The cookbook is divided into sections by the seasons -- Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. There are a wide variety of recipes for each season as well as absolutely amazing photographs.

My coffee table cookbook of choice for the last few years has been Thomas Keller's double pack of French Laundry and Bouchon, packaged in that neat wallet that looks like (and at a push could probably act as) a fisherman's slab. I kept trying others, like the weighty and depressingly grey Fat Duck Cookbook or the El Bulli one, but always went back to the Keller compedium. Not anymore, though. It's been swiftly replaced on my coffee table by Eleven Madison Park, and I reckon it could be moving in for a good long while.

The reasons aren't just aesthetic, though it is an impressively gorgeous looking book. It's also that the recipes are in fact extremely enticing, even if I won't end up following them that religiously onca day to day basis, saving that for a special occasion. Instead, what I tend to use the book for are ideas. So the "John Dory Seared with Sweet Corn, Chaneterelles, Radishes and Lemongrass" has triggered a succesful dish using those same flavours in my own kitchen, though a stripped down and less complex version of the Eleven Madison Park original, for certain. Ditto the combination of Cauliflower with Grapes, Almonds and Curry. Absolutely delicious, I'm telling you.

When I have attempted one of Daniel Humm's awe-inspiring dishes, they've worked perfectly and tasted utterly delightful... I'm thinking in particular of a Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake with, wait for it, candied green olives, which is truly sensational, the sweet/salty acidity of the olives and lemons a superb pairing that works splendidly in a martini so why not in a cake...?

A truly incredible coffee table cookbook that is extremely workable in the kitchen too.

This is probably not something I will ever cook - I am not in their league. However, I love this book. I bought it for my 15 year old who has always wanted to go to 11 Madison Park - however, a trip to New York for supper is out of our league!!!!!!!!! But she was enthralled with the book and it has pride of place in our kitchen on display.

The super thing about this book is that you can break it down if you want to just use a couple of their concepts. There are recipes in there that I could cook and miss out the tricky bits.

It is a lovely book to read, and the writers do understand that this is not for everyone!

However, it is a gorgeous book, broken down into seasons. Stunning photography. A really super book to own. Just dont expect to cook from it, unless you are a chef or a Masterchef contestant!

Quite simply the crème de la crème of cookbooks. An exceptional source of background information about Executive Chef Daniel Humm, General Manager Will Guidara and the daily operation both out front and behind the scenes at Eleven Madison Park, one of the worlds top restaurants. This beautiful book showcases a vast range of their dishes by season and includes recipes, cooking techniques and the most beautiful photographs of their exquisitely plated food. The narrative suggests that many of the recipes have been adapted for the home cook - I would suggest that it is not for the faint hearted but no matter whether you are a professional chef or a very gifted amateur, the book itself is equally suited as a reference book in the kitchen or a feast for the eyes on a coffee table.
