Many of America’s greatest chefs are immigrants (just like we are!). This cookbook, A Place at the Table, just released by Prestel Publishing and the Vilcek Foundation, features stories and recipes from forty such award-winning chefs including Marcus Samuelsson, Nite Yun, Fabián von Hauske Valtierra, Dominique Crenn, Daniela Soto-Innes, and many more. Our design and art direction highlights the diversity show cased by the chefs and their food. Together they exemplify a fact: that immigrants are good for our kitchens—and our country.
The challenge was to showcase diversity without it looking messy. We started with the photography. Art directed so that there would be a common theme even though the food and chefs were photographed all over the United States by many photographers. The multiple pastel colors inspired by the diversity of the food made the book as colorful as the chefs and their food.
A Place at the Table: New American Recipes from the Nation’s Top Foreign-Born Chefs, is the winner of the 2020 Gourmand World Cookbook Award in the United States Cuisine category. Additionally it was highly praised in the press.
