For the Love of Food:
Recipes and Stories from the
Chefs of the IACP

Contributor: Julia M. Usher

This book is not for those who merely like food. Nor is this book for those who simply appreciate food. No – this book is for those who love food!

A collaboration of chef-members of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP), For the Love of Food provides a unique glimpse into the heads and kitchens of some of the most creative and talented chefs in the world today. Contributors include Rick Bayless, Lidia Bastianich, Todd English, Charlie Trotter, and Julia M. Usher, among nearly 30 other leading culinarians. In addition to recipes, each chef generously shares memories and stories from his or her past that illuminate a common appreciation for the profound cultural and spiritual impact of food.

Julia lovingly recounts her remembrances of growing up in a 1798 farmhouse with an herb-happy mother who put her “favorite green things” into everything. Not surprisingly, Julia’s recipes highlight some of her mom’s most memorable herb pairings.
