"A New Napa Cuisine" follows Kostow’s journey from summer jobs at a Chicago-area music festival to helming a three-Michelin starred restaurant that the Wall Street Journal recently praised as a “temple of modern American cuisine.” The book celebrates the local artisans, products, growers, and wilds that have played a role in the creation of a nascent style of cooking specific to this small American valley. Through tales of designing china with local ceramicists or discovering wild edibles along the creek while walking his dog; planting seeds both literal and figurative—Kostow’s story is a personal and engaging one.
