Meals from the Creative Mind of a Young Chef @sam_stern
For more photos and videos of Sam’s favorite dishes, follow @sam_stern on Instagram.
Sam Stern (@sam_stern) published his first cookbook when he was 14 years old, but the young British author has been cooking since before he can remember.
“I come from a large family with lots of taste preferences, so I was always in the kitchen helping out my mum,” he says. “I gradually moved from the little jobs to eventually taking over the kitchen.”
Now at 24 years old, Sam is practically a veteran chef, with six books under his belt and another one on the way next year. But he uses Instagram to share a different, more personal display of recipes: the meals he makes at home, for his family and friends.
“I like to imagine the possibilities of various taste combinations, trying out new ingredients and timings,” he says. “If it starts in my imagination then triumphs on the plate—that is the ultimate rush for me.”
#russelljames shot the Victoria’s Secret angels for his new book, and I got to go to the release party! Fun times.
They [Hollywood] pound you over the head with these messages and then there’s nothing left. There’s no margin of the undefined; it’s all there for you. In all my favorite films there’s always something missing. Something to make me curious. I wanted to do that with ‘Kids.’ I think one of the reasons why everyone’s so angry is because it doesn’t give you a definitive YES or NO — this is bad, this is good. If you have any kind of sense you’ll take away some kind of message, but if you can’t see past the shock, you’re not going to get anything.” —Harmony Korine
It’s the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it. - Andy Warhol
