In Chefs of the Coast, restaurant reviewer and food critic John Batchelor profiles 50 well-established and up-and-coming chefs from the region. Drawing from personal interviews, Batchelor reveals each chef’s cooking philosophy, influences, and personality. Each profile also includes:

• A description of the restaurant, its ambience, and sample menu items
• Color photographs of the chef, restaurant, and food
• Recipes from each chef
Sidebars throughout the book offer information about farms (mostly organic) that sell vegetables and meats to the public as well as to restaurants, unique producers from the region, and stories of a number of people who gave up successful careers in order to return to the land.
Batchelor has written about restaurants and travel since 1981. He is the restaurant reviewer for the Greensboro News & Record and formerly for the Winston-Salem Journal. Batchelor came across the idea for this book through his frequent judging of cooking competitions, including the Western North Carolina Chef’s Challenge (restaurants compete in and around Asheville, N.C.) and the Fire on the Rock Chef’s Challenge (restaurants in and around Blowing Rock and the High Country).

I am buying books from the outside shelves at The Readers Corner (a Raleigh used book store) and releasing them. This is one of those books. If you like it, take it and write a journal entry at - its easy and anonymous. Then when you are done with it, find a nice person or place to release it. I look forward to reading your thoughts on this book and finding out where you got it from. This book is on an adventure we can share with it.
