Most people know Zac Posen as the world-renowned fashion designer and judge on the Emmy Award-winning show Project Runway. But recently, his mouth-watering, beautifully plated dishes on Instagram introduced his fans to another one of his passions: food. For Zac, food and fashion are both sensory experiences, and the process is the same whether you're planning a meal or a fashion collection. Cooking with Zac brings together these passions: Its design is based on the five fashion collection seasons and each chapter opens with a custom pattern created by Zac. When it comes to creating his meals, Zac believes in a balance between healthy, fresh, local ingredients and decadently sweet desserts. Think chic daywear followed by a striking evening gown. In Cooking With Zac, readers will be taken on that journey of exquisite taste with recipes ranging from delicate corn summer salads and a classic blueberry tart to cozy culurgiones topped with a zesty tomato sauce. Throughout the book, Zac shares stories of his incredible rise and journey within the worlds of fashion and food.
