Praise For Cook it Raw

"A wild cooking experiment... The book recounts four Cook It Raw gatherings - in Denmark, Japan, Italy, and Finland - in lush photography, email exchanges, recipe descriptions and entertaining essays."—The Wall Street Journal Europe

"Essays within the book are as varied as the food and are the sort of writing that you'll want to read over and over again... The images of the food, chefs and locations are outstandingly beautiful - the photography is artwork and no mere accompaniment... Dotted amongst the writing and photography are quotations by some of the greatest chefs in the world about the process and the food itself... A wonderful gift for anyone who loves food, even if they already have enough recipe books... A fantastic insight into cooking, ingredients and the chefs who use them... Beautifully written and visually stunning, a lovely read and a great source of inspiration."—Huffington Post UK

"For the most ardent food lover comes a fulfilling companion called Cook it Raw - Phaidon's beautiful, sideways look at cooking. The large book records the four Cook it Raw events - conducted somewhere remote in Denmark, Italy, Finland and Japan with some of the best chefs in the world (such as Noma's Rene Redzepi and Momofuku's David Chang). Their mission is to create dishes made with the ingredients available to them in their surroundings. Free from the constraints of their kitchen the results range from failure to the orgasmic, but what binds them all is that common love and respect for what grows around us. Utterly spellbinding."—Harper's Bazaar

"Cook It Raw... is more of a culinary scrapbook or a catalog than a cookbook... It's a high quality documentation of an event few will ever actually be able to attend."—Eater.com

"Fascinating." —Olivatessen (Spain)
