It could be the world’s shortest cookbook: Following a collaboration with his brother on “Volt Ink” in 2011, Range and Volt chef Bryan Voltaggio will focus on home cooking with his first solo collection of recipes.
“The working title right now is ‘Home,’ ” Voltaggio says. “It’ll be what I cook at home and also some adaptations of dishes at Family Meal, which is a restaurant about families getting together and sharing food. It’s kind of a window into what I like to cook when I might be off, which is very rare. These are rare recipes, sir!”
And with that, Voltaggio releases one of his staccato bursts of laughter, endearing in its boyish enthusiasm.
Scheduled to be published by Little, Brown and Co., “Home” will be a departure from the large-format “Volt Ink,” in which Voltaggio and his brother, Michael, pulled out their bag of modernist tricks for home cooks with enough bank to afford thermal immersion circulators, smoking guns and vacuum sealers.
