An Imaginative Feast

"Molly Stevens has long been one of my favorite cookbook authors. Her All About Braising book turned me into a passionate braiser; and her new All About Roasting book led me to oven-roasted hamburgers and slow-roasted herbed turkey breast. So imagine my surprise and delight when she e-mailed to say that she’d be in L.A. cooking dinner at a really cool venue called Elysian. I immediately signed us up."
