Gavin Kaysen, Nick Fauchald
2022

In his first cookbook, Minneapolis Chef Gavin Kaysen answers a question he's been asked throughout his career: "What do you cook at home?" Unlike many of his peers, the award-winning chef loves to cook on his days off, and applies the lessons he's learned in professional kitchens to feeding his family and friends. In 2020, Gavin began sharing those lessons with home cooks through a series of virtual cooking classes. The response was so enthusiastic-and the demand for more classes so high-that he has continued filming new episodes of "Chef GK at Home" ever since. In the pages of his cookbook, At Home, Gavin shares dozens of recipes from these classes, as well as Kaysen family favorites. Each recipe goes deeper and wider than the typical cookbook, offering step-by-step photography as well as tips and insights Gavin has collected during his years of running fine-dining kitchens and cooking with the world's best chefs (and his grandmother, Dorothy). A recipe for Crispy Chicken Thighs with Roasted Fall Vegetables teaches the essentials of braising, while Pici Pasta with Clams in White Wine Sauce shows even the most novice homes how to roll their own pasta and turn it into a show-stopping meal. Also included are mainstay dishes from Gavin's restaurants, including Dorothy's Pot Roast, and other recipes that marry his Midwestern roots with the elevated French cuisine that has earned the chef many awards and countless fans.
