Can you give us some information about the cookbook you are writing? What will be in it and when will it be published?

Yes! 'Taste, Pure and Simple,' published by Chronicle Books, will be on shelves next September.

The cookbook focuses on the first two years of our work at Heartbeat. It informally discusses the challenges and revelations we encountered in presenting a restaurant that does not use butter and cream. I chose recipes that were doable for the home cook, while still challenging those with cooking backgrounds. The book expands on juice work by introducing the reader to juices that thicken themselves in the cooking process, and also looks at methods like low-temperature sauteing.
