Pre-order your copy of The Recipe before October 17, 2017, and receive these bonus gifts, created specially for this offer by Chef Carroll and John David Mann:

1 Owen’s Recipes: The Video – first look!

A set of video demos, shot in July 2017 in Chef Carroll’s kitchen at home, of Chef Carroll cooking a half dozen key recipes from the book and chatting about them with coauthor John David Mann. This video set will be featured on the book’s website starting in late October 2017 — but you can view them the moment they’re finished (projected on or before September 1).

2 Owen’s Recipes: The Photobook – exclusive!

A coffee-table style digital book (PDF) of the same recipes, illustrated with beautiful full-color photographs taken from our July 2017 video shoot, and annotated with additional behind-the-scenes notes from the authors. NOTE: We created this photobook exclusively for this pre-order offer — it will not be available anywhere else, ever, after October 17, 2017.

3 Author Interview: The Story Behind the Story – first look!

During a break in their July 2017 video shoot, Chef Carroll sat down with coauthor John David Mann to talk about his New England childhood, early influences and Olympic experiences, the real “Mad Dog” and other people from his life who were inspirations for characters in the book, and more.
