In his first cookbook, Minneapolis-based chef Gavin Kaysen answers a question he’s been asked throughout his career: “What do you cook at home?” As a husband and father of three boys, the award-winning chef loves to cook on his days off, and applies the lessons he’s learned in some of America’s best restaurants to feeding his family and friends.

“From recipes handed down generations to variations on those he’s cooked in restaurant kitchens, At Home highlights comforting dishes with global influences. Home cooks will delight in Chef Kaysen’s accessible recipes, coupled with thorough instructions and thoughtful techniques.” —Thomas Keller

At Home features more than 100 recipes ranging from quick weeknight dinners to show-stopping weekend projects, as well as utilitarian pantry staples, kid-friendly meals, and family favorites all organized by season, including:

  • The Perfect Pot Roast with Kale and Squash Salad
  • Watermelon and Tomato Salad with Sumac Vinaigrette
  • Grilled Branzino with Brown Butter, Tomato, Olives, and Bread Crumbs
  • Pappardelle Pasta with Pork Ragu
  • Swedish Pancakes
  • And more! 

Each recipe goes deeper and wider than the typical cookbook, offering step-by-step photography as well as tips and insights Gavin has collected during his years of running fine-dining kitchens and cooking with the world’s best chefs, marrying his Midwestern roots with the elevated French cuisine that has earned the chef many awards and countless fans.
