Rôtisserie Georgette’s Owner on Priceless Tips from Daniel Boulud and Eerily Beautiful Portuguese Tiles

As a born-and-reared New Yorker, Georgette Farkas knew immediately where she wanted to open her first restaurant: Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Rôtisserie Georgette, slated to open mid-November, boasts a menu full of roast meats, luscious sides and classic French desserts.

Read on for Farkas’s inspiration, design process and what she learned from Boulud. Read more >

Ferran Adrià’s Game-Changing Cookbook

El Bulli: El Sabor del Mediterraneo

Getting a chef to pick a favorite cookbook is like asking a parent to choose her most-loved child. But F&W pressed great cooks around the country to reveal their top picks of all-time.

Chef: David Myers

The Book: El Bulli: El Sabor del Mediterráneo by Ferran Adrià, 1993

“I happened upon it at the great Paris cookbook store Librairie Gourmande, when I was working in France in 1997,” says Hinoki & the Bird chef David Myers. “I’d never heard of him, but as I flipped through it I thought, ‘My god, who is this guy?’ That book blew me away in every way: visually, in how he plated, it was game-changing.”
