Bravo's Top Chef All-Stars winner Richard Blais published a debut cookbook for home cooks looking to up their game with more excitement in the kitchen. Accessible and fun, Try This at Home (2013 Clarkson Potter) includes the signature recipes, flavour combinations and cooking techniques that have made him such a popular chef. Blais has a wildly creative approach — whether it's adding coffee to butter, incorporating the flavours of pastrami into mustard, or cooking lamb shanks in root beer. Here, try his wife's favourite dish, Honduran chicken (pictured above), and two other easy recipes.
