Description

"To eat at Fatty Crew's new restaurant is to experience the very essence of nowness. No one else is cooking like this anywhere."
--Sam Sifton, New York Times

Iconoclast chef Zak Pelaccio has been hailed as a "mini Mario" (Batali) and "the next Jean-Georges" (Vongerichten). The ingenious culinary innovator behind the acclaimed Fatty Crab and Fatty 'Cue restaurants, Palaccio entreats food-lovers to Eat With Your Hands with this groundbreaking and gorgeous cookbook of Southeast-Asian inspired, French-Italian inflected cuisine. A gastronome's delight, Eat With Your Hands celebrates the unique joys of getting your hands greasy in--and out--of the kitchen with more than 125 unique, extraordinarily savory recipes aimed at both the professional and the home cook alike. This is haute cuisine with a punk rock flair, presented with a refreshing irreverence that would do Anthony Bourdain proud.

Back cover copy

From Zakary Pelaccio, founder and owner of Fatty Crab and Fatty 'Cue, comes a gorgeous, groundbreaking cookbook of Southeast Asian--inspired, French-- and Italian--inflected food that celebrates getting your hands dirty in--and out of--the kitchen.

Eat with Your Hands takes readers on a tour of the outrageously flavorful and wholly original food that has made Pelaccio a star, in a cookbook that's as irreverent, high-spirited, and deeply iconoclastic as the chef himself.

Combining a punk rock ethos with a commitment to producing exquisitely imagined and executed food, Eat with Your Hands brings together Pelaccio's eclectic influences in wildly inventive recipes that showcase his innovative blending of Asian flavors, sustainable local ingredients, and American gusto.

Full of highly opinionated suggestions for both what to drink and what to listen to in the kitchen, paeans to the joys of the mortar and pestle and fermented condiments, charming sidebars on kitchen techniques, and an unbridled love for real food, Eat with Your Hands is a celebration of no-holds-barred cooking from a chef who is redefining the American culinary landscape.
