Avec Eric   —Eric Ripert

In writing his latest cookbook, Avec Eric: A Culinary Journey with Eric Ripert, celebrity- chef Eric Ripert envisioned himself as a “home cook who invited his friends for a simple meal.” The 100+ recipe tour-de-force begins at Le Bernadin, Ripert’s current haunt, then sets out for California, Tuscany, the Cayman Islands, and beyond. Blue Moon Acres’ pea leaves are featured in a pan-roasted red snapper dish with ginger-lemon-scallion broth. “They’re a sweet, neutral green,” says Ripert of the pea leaves, “with an interesting texture—half silky, half al dente—and the ability to take on whatever flavors you put with them.”
