The Chef: Daniel Wright

The Book: by Charlie Trotter, 1997

“It was my first splurge on a serious book,” Wright says. “I was working as a poissonnier at Gordon. It predates The French Laundry and the Alinea books—it came out when nobody was spending $50 on cookbooks. The photography was intense, the combinations of ingredients. It had a glossary on what vegetables were in season when, what seafood was sustainable, what wines paired well with what types of fish. It was so incredibly—I don’t want to say ahead of its time, but on the cusp.”
