Description

This cookbook is the distillation of a life's work by a self-taught American chef who learned to cook by reading cookbooks and went on to become one of the world's most renowned chefs. O'Connell began his career with a catering business in an old farmhouse, cooking on a wood stove with an electric frying pan purchased for $1.49 at a garage sale. (The pan was used for boiling, sautéeing and deep frying for parties of up to 300 guests.) This experience sharpened his awareness of how much could be done with very little. The catering business evolved into a country restaurant and Inn which opened in 1978 in a defunct garage and which is now a 5 Star, 5 Diamond rated restaurant and Relais & Chateaux country house hotel.

"We had the pleasure of spending a weekend at the inn and on one of our 2 dinners there actually ate at the "chef's table" in the kitchen. While there we were able to sample a large portion of the menu and obtain an autographed copy of his cookbook. Upon returning home I assumed the recipes would be convoluted and difficult to follow. THIS IS NOT THE CASE! Patrick's recipes are clear, straight-forward and enable any cook with moderate kitchen skills to wonderfully replicate the dishes he serves at his fantastic inn! If you want to produce delicious dishes, with a hint of southern US, French & Italian influences then buy this book!!! You will not be disappointed & your guests will be amazed!" - Vincent A.

"I bought this book after a chef friend loaned me his. I don't buy a "cookbook" unless it has at least 5 recipes I immediately want to make. This book has at least 10. I have made three in the short time I've had it and am anxious to continue. The photos in this book are utterly amazing. The author lets you see into his life of his passion for cooking and how he came to this point in his life. I would recommend this book to people who have a true desire for cooking and want a book off the "beaten path". I have my degree in baking and pastry and am working to start my own business, so this book inspires me to continue on that path." - D. Smith
