Charlie Palmer burst onto the culinary scene in the mid-'¬?80s-fresh out of culinary school-and almost immediately earned three stars at the River Caf?© from the New York Times. Growing up on a farm in upstate New York, Palmer was raised on quality produce, dairy, and meats, instilling in him a passion for the best ingredients long before it was fashionable. So with an education in classic European cooking, a commitment to hand-crafted foods, and a designer'¬?s eye for creating art on the plate, he was perfectly primed to shed new light on contemporary American cuisine. At age 28, Palmer opened Aureole and was instantly showered with accolades, establishing its stellar reputation on his talent for blending uptown drama with country inn warmth. Now in its fifteenth year of unflagging popularity, the art of Aureole'¬?s cuisine has never been more brilliant. With more than 75 signature recipes, each photographed in a bold, artful composition inspired by the character of the dish, this collection captures the enduring qualities that have made Aureole a Manhattan classic.More than 75 comtemporary American recipes from Manhattan's famed Aureole, each presented in a lavish double-page photo.Palmer is the chef-owner of eight restataurants and catering companies: Kitchen 22, Metrazur, and Astra in New York City; Aureole at Mandalay Bay Resort and Charlie Palmer Steak in Las Vegas; the Dry Creek Kitchen in Sonoma, California; and Astra West and the Lounge at Astra in Los Angeles. Palmer won the 1997 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: New York; Aureole was inducted into the prestigious Relais & Chateaux the same year.
