"To eat at Fatty Crew's new restaurant is to experience the very essence of nowness. No one else is cooking like this anywhere."
--Sam Sifton, New York Times
Iconoclast chef Zak Pelaccio has been hailed as a "mini Mario" (Batali) and "the next Jean-Georges" (Vongerichten). The ingenious culinary innovator behind the acclaimed Fatty Crab and Fatty 'Cue restaurants, Palaccio entreats food-lovers to Eat With Your Hands with this groundbreaking and gorgeous cookbook of Southeast-Asian inspired, French-Italian inflected cuisine. A gastronome's delight, Eat With Your Hands celebrates the unique joys of getting your hands greasy in--and out--of the kitchen with more than 125 unique, extraordinarily savory recipes aimed at both the professional and the home cook alike. This is haute cuisine with a punk rock flair, presented with a refreshing irreverence that would do Anthony Bourdain proud.
