Praise for Cooking with Zac
“In the entire world of couture, Zac Posen is the only fashionista I have ever met who I can honestly call hungry, and that is a compliment. Hungry for fun, hungry for conversation, hungry for hilarity and for festivity, Zac is my favorite fashion eater and now my favorite fashion cook. These delicious and beautifully simple recipes make me want to spend the weekend at Zac’s and let him cook the entire time while I merely uncork the wines and do the dishes.”
—Mario Batali, chef, entrepreneur and philanthropist
