Executive Chef and cookbook author, Govind Armstrong
What a success story this chef and consummate culinary master is. And despite his relative youth, he's clearly been in the first-hand trenches of L.A.'s culinary history and cuisine for nearly two decades. Beginning at the age 13, he spent three summer vacations working under the watchful eye of none other than Wolfgang Puck in the kitchen of the original Spago, in its inaugural year.
Now, heating up his own kitchen and tantalizing the palates of his dedicated Table 8 restaurant patrons in Los Angeles, Armstrong also showcases his hard-earned pedigree in this new must-have for the cookbook shelves titled Small Bites, Big Nights .
Celebrity Chef and AOL Online cooking host, Tyler Florence writes a befitting foreword outlining Armstrong's talents as the king of California-style cuisine, and from hors d’oeuvres to barbeque Serrano Ham and Grilled Endive, to a host of mouth-watering drinks (yes, that Table 8 Creamsicle *is* to die for!), this one's a true winner.
Don't miss out.
