Overview
Chef brothers Max and Eli Sussman are back with their fourth cookbook, Classic Recipes for Modern People, featuring over 75 recipes that reimagine classic dishes from their childhood and yours, with a little humor baked in along the way.

Classics Recipes for Modern People is the definitive collection of classic recipes that have been reinvented, rejiggered, reordered, and re-created by Max and Eli Sussman. They believe that recipes should be ever expanding and evolving, a philosophy they practice in both their professional and home kitchens. That a dish "no matter how classic and iconic--has the ability to morph into something new and fantastic."

Divided into eight sections like "Classics from Our Childhood," TV Dinner Classics," "Future Classics," and "Breakfast Classics" readers will find reinvented dishes inspired by Max and Eli's childhood in Detroit, the frozen food aisle, followers on social media, and more. Everything old is new again - tastier, bolder, and better. Welcome to the new classics.

The Sussman siblings take the age-old concept of comfort food and update it for modern tastes. Home cooks interested in adding to their comfort food canon will likely find some inspiration in this eye-catching collection. In many cases, the original recipe is visible through the Sussmans' changes, as with lamb meatloaf with curried potatoes; spicy Asian fondue; preserved lemon key lime pie; and an eight-layer dip consisting of shrimp ceviche. But the duo don't stop there, offering imaginative dishes like vegetable dumplings with spicy dipping sauce; an omelet made of hash browns; and the incredibly messy full English breakfast, incorporating bacon, eggs, sausage, tomatoes and baked beans. The recipes are, for the most part, fairly easy to source and prepare. A simple chicken liver mousse on toast with fresh blackberries, for example, is well within the reach of even the most novice cook, as is the inevitable burger (pork-based, with a little beef and panko in lieu of traditional bread crumbs). The Sussmans' thoughtful collection is sure to jar readers from their comfort (food) zones and encourage them to branch out to incorporate new flavors and ingredients. (Mar.)
