Asheville star chef Katie Button of Curate restaurant signs on for cookbook

Share, by way of Publishers Marketplace, reports that Asheville star Chef Katie Button has signed a deal for her first cookbook, The Curate Cookbook. Button’s restaurant in Asheville is the awesomely popular tapas eatery Curate.

Eater says Button “will be publishing her debut cookbook, inspired by the Spanish cuisine she serves at her hit tapas barCúrate. In The Curate Cookbook, Button will focus on “showing readers how to recreate Spain’s classic dishes in the home kitchen” over the course of 125 recipes. The Curate Cookbook will be published by Flatiron Books, no release date has been specified yet.”

Button and her crew have been killing it since opening just a couple of years ago in downtown Asheville. She was an apprentice under Ferran Adria, a super-influential chef known for running one of the most creative kitchens in the world at his restaurant in Spain, elBulli.

Adria’s methods, and the magic around his cooking, are the subject of a new book, The Sorcerer’s Apprentices: A Season in the Kitchen at Ferran Adria’s elBulli by Lisa Abend, (there’s a review here by the Christian Science Monitor), a book that featured coverage of Button’s time there.

Congratulations to Katie and the Curate crew!

I’d like to order a cookbook for my daughter for Christmas. Last October she and her husband spent their 1st anniversary in Asheville and had a wonderful dining experience at Cu’rate.

Hopefully most of the recipes will use ingredients that are easy to find, and not a bunch of specialty, unaffordable items.

I found this…

“Haters don’t really hate you, they hate themselves;
because you’re a reflection of what they wish to be”
