The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook Is Now Available and Features Tons of Boston Chefs

The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook, the first ever cookbook by the Boston-based, sustainability-centered nonprofit chef network that is Chefs Collaborative, is now available and includes a who's who of major players in the local culinary scene and beyond. The release of the book is timed with the organization's twentieth anniversary, and it has received high praise from the likes of food writer and former Gourmet editor Ruth Reichl, who blurbs "Many chefs – and their books – pay lip service to the sustainable ideal. This book does more than that." The book's structure includes four sections - fruits, vegetables and other edible plants; meat and poultry; fish and seafood; dairy and eggs - and recipes are accompanied by information from farmers, breeders, food producers and activists. The book can be found online and in stores at Barnes & Noble and Powell's Books and online at the Taunton Store and Amazon.

Among the Boston chefs included in the book are Jody Adams of Rialto and Trade, Barry Maiden of Hungry Mother, Jasper White of Summer Shack and many more. See below for the full lists of both local and regional chefs.
