    Share: Delicious and Surprising Recipes to Pass Around Your Table

    The popular judge of Chopped and chef/founder of Beauty & Essex, Stanton Social, and Vandal opens up his kitchen with unforgettable food to share with your friends and family.

    Why serve boring food . . . ever?! In Share, Chris Santos serves up the unique communal dining he has made his signature in his renowned Lower East Side restaurants. Here, he offers over 100 extraordinary “big platter” recipes for his creative take on old-school favorites, specifically made for family-style dining, as well as small plates that are fun to serve when entertaining. If you want to feel like you are hosting a real “downtown” party, you won’t go wrong with Santos’ legendary cocktails like Beauty Elixir, Emerald Gimlet, or the Woodsman, all of which go down well with starters like Nori-Spiced Tuna Poke Crisps, Crab Corn Dogs with Old Bay Aioli, or his famous Grilled Cheese Dumplings in Tomato Soup. You can follow up with exciting main courses like Spicy Lamb Souvlaki with Tzatziki or Korean Short Rib Tacos with Classic Kimchi. You’ll have a hard time convincing your guests to leave if you serve them such desserts as Peanut Butter and Jelly “Twinkies” or Black-Bottomed Butterscotch Pots de Crv®me. These addictive dishes will have everyone at the table reaching for seconds. Share is comfort food at its highest level. And, you don’t need a guest list or a party to try these surprisingly tasty recipes any night of the week!
