About the book/Author: The term “market cooking” is from the French phrase au marché, cooking based on what the cook finds at the market that day. David Tanis Market Cooking is about seeking out at local markets the best ingredients, learning the qualities of each, and the methods and recipes that showcase what makes them special – pulling from all the world’s great cuisines. He writes of being more discerning in the market and freer in the kitchen, of how to become a more intuitive and spontaneous cook.

David Tanis headed the kitchen at Chez Panisse restaurant, on and off, for over 25 years, splitting his time between the restaurant in Berkeley, CA, and a successful private supper club in his 17th-century walk-up in Paris. Pursuing his passion for home cooking, Tanis eventually left Chez Panisse and moved to Manhattan, where he currently lives and writes the City Kitchen column for the New York Times. He is the author of several acclaimed cookbooks, including A Platter of Figs and Other Recipes, which was chosen as one of the 50 best cookbooks ever by the Guardian/Observer (U.K.) and Heart of the Artichoke, which was nominated for a James Beard Award.
