Coco: 10 World-Leading Masters Choose 100 Contemporary Chefs

Coco: 10 World-Leading Masters Choose 100 Contemporary Chefs is a book filled with profiles of 100 up-and-coming chefs as selected by ten ‘Masters’: Ferran Adria, Mario Batali, Rene Redzepi, Alice Waters, Jacky Yu, Gordon Ramsay, Fergus Henderson, Shannon Bennett, Alain Ducasse, and Yoshihiro Murata.

The book is filled with a massive amount of narrative, visual and technical information. There are about 500 recipes in the book, but this isn’t a cookbook. It is more of an international contemporary cuisine yearbook.

How the ten ‘Masters’ were selected is unmentioned. The Masters, in turn, selected a lot of their anointed ones from their proteges. The hundred chefs certainly don’t comprise an exhaustive list of young culinary talent, but it’s as good a place to start as any.
