Chefs continuously define their individuality by the ingredients they present and their unique style of cooking. They constantly refine recipes to showcase their own tastes. Frank Wing seeks to interpret these unique temperaments in his portraits of chefs in their restaurants or of their signature dishes and favorite ingredients. From Alain Senderens at his eponymous Art Nouveau decor destination in Paris to Alice Waters in her famous California kitchen, each chef or restaurant is illustrated with careful composition and often dramatic lighting to convey the sense of place and taste. Even the outdoor hand pulled noodle chef in Xian is shown with his own style.
