AS SEEN IN THE NEW DOCUMENTARY JEREMIAH TOWER: THE LAST MAGNIFICENT Newly revised and reissued to coincide with The Last Magnificent, a documentary feature produced by Anthony Bourdain, the indelible and entertaining memoir from Jeremiah Tower which chronicles life at the front lines of redefining modern American cuisine. Widely recognized as the godfather of modern American cooking, Jeremiah Tower is one of the most influential cooks of the last forty years. In 2004, he rocked the culinary world with a tell-all story of his lifelong love affair with food, and the restaurants and people along the way. In this newly revised edition of his memoir, retitled Start the Fire, Tower shares with wit and honesty his insights into cooking, chefs, celebrities, and what really goes on in the kitchen. Above all, Tower rhapsodizes about food—the meals choreographed like great ballets, the menus scored like concertos. No other book reveals more about the seeds sown in the seventies, the excesses of the eighties, and the self-congratulations of the nineties. With a new introduction by the author, Start the Fire is an essential account of the most important years in the history of American cooking, from one of its singular personalities.

From birth until death, food and drink are the keystones of human existence as eating and drinking have always sustained our imaginations as well as our bodies, feeding our common need for art. In these volumes, the American Institute of Wine & Food gathers together the imaginative fare of writers, artists, chefs, food historians, and children to celebrate and illustrate gastronomy, the art and science of eating. Writings from Michael Jackson, Sharon Olds, Michael Dorris, Margaret Visser, Charles Simic, Carol Field, and David Mas Masumoto, among others, join with the art of painters and photographers such as Frida Kahlo, Tessa Traeger, Diego Rivera, Gary Kelley, Jeffrey Alford, and Naomi Duguid. Together these offerings represent some of the best culinary works of past and present and produce a feast for both the eyes and the mind.
