The Chef: Suzanne Goin

A Return to Cooking by Eric Ripert & Michael Rhulman, 2009

“This book is so personal and beautiful,” says Goin. “There’s honesty in the stories of the struggle and joy of cooking out of one’s element. The photographs touched me so much that when I wrote my book Sunday Suppers at Lucques, as well as The A.O.C. Cookbook, I knew I had to have Shimon and Tammar Rothstein as my photographers.”
