Ticketed - Vroman’s presents Eric Ripert, in conversation with Ben Mims (LA Times), discussing Seafood Simple: A Cookbook

Author and chef Eric Ripert ticketed event details for October 6 at 7pm

"I hope that this book is a source of inspiration and education, encouraging you to cook with confidence and approach seafood with joy, and even love. The secret to Seafood Simple is to trust the process, and yourself."

In its three decades at the top of New York City's restaurant scene, Le Bernardin has been celebrated as one of the finest seafood restaurants in the world and its iconic chef Eric Ripert as the expert in fish cookery. Now, in Seafood Simple, Ripert demystifies his signature cuisine, making delectable fish dishes achievable for home cooks of all skill levels--yet still with elegance and panache.

Breaking down cooking techniques into their building blocks, along with images to illustrate each step in the process, Seafood Simple teaches readers how to master core skills, from poaching and deep frying to filleting a fish and shucking an oyster. These techniques are then applied to eighty-five straightforward, delicious recipes, many of which include substitutions for maximum ease. Dishes like Tuna Carpaccio, Crispy Fish Tacos, Shrimp Tempura, Miso Cod, and Spaghetti Vongole show us how to bring out the vibrant flavor and incredible versatility of seafood. Each recipe is accompanied by a gorgeous image by renowned photographer Nigel Parry, as well as step-by-step photos for each of the twenty techniques taught in the book.

Stunning, delectable, and above all, actually doable, Seafood Simple is a master class from one of the world's greatest chefs, created especially for the home cook. (Random House)
