The Breakaway Cook: Recipes That Break Away from the Ordinary
Co-sponsored by Medicine Eatstation, Crocker Galleria
Gower’s “breakaway” approach to cooking combines “Global Flavor Blasts” and seasoning, easy preparations gleaned from culinary traditions around the world, and the spontaneity of fusion cuisine. Learn where to find the best local and ethnic markets, and how to create the aesthetics of your table from an innovative chef and food expert.
Eric lived in Japan for fifteen years and worked for the Prime Minister's office as an editor and ghostwriter on political economy. He became fascinated with Japanese food—in restaurants, in markets, and, especially, at home, where he began to cook with Japanese ingredients in nontraditional ways.
He later traveled throughout Asia developing his culinary sensibility and his palate.
Eric Gower is currently a writer and private chef. He writes a twice-weekly column for Yahoo Food called “The Breakaway Cook,” and is the author of two previous cookbooks, Eric’s Kitchen and The Breakaway Japanese Kitchen.
