Gjelina is Los Angeles's most talked-about restaurant, lauded by critics from London to New York to San Francisco and beloved by stars, locals, and out-of-towners alike for its seductive simplicity and eclectic Cal-Med menu from talented chef Travis Lett. This standout cookbook features 125 of the rustic and utterly delicious salads, toasts, pizzas, vegetable and grain dishes, pastas, fish and meat mains, and desserts that have had fans clamoring for a table since the restaurant burst onto the scene. More than 150 color photographs from acclaimed photographer Michael Graydon and stylist Nikole Herriott, plus a tactile, artisanal package, evoke the vibe of Venice Beach and the Gjelina (the G's silent) aesthetic, and showcase the beautiful plated food of Lett's ingredient-based, vegetable-centric cooking. This is the cookbook for the way we want to cook and eat now.

Some good recipes in this book and with photos. I like to see photos so I know what the dish should look like in the end. "Butterscotch Cream Pots with Salted Caramel Sauce" custard drew rave reviews from my family and friends. They also mention in the book that it is the recipe that draws the most praise at the restaurant. Needs 9 egg yokes so you need a matching recipe for egg whites. "Meatballs Braised in Wine Sauce" was quite tasty. I found the portion size they suggested was usually much larger than what my family would eat although my son-in-law could probably accomplish it.

It's doubtful that I'll make anything from this one, but the photos are gorgeous and it sounds like a delicious restaurant.
