Del Posto's Brooks Headley Lands Cookbook Deal

Screengrab: Eater NY

Get ready to learn more about Brooks Headley's journey from punk rock drummer to executive pastry chef at New York's four-star Del Posto. According to Publishers Marketplace, Headley just landed a deal with Norton for a recipe book titled Occupation: Pastry Chef. Per the description, the book will introduce "an Italian nonna-like approach to fine dining and documenting the author's unlikely rise from internationally known punk rock drummer to four-star dessert-maker, highlighting unorthodox techniques that celebrate, among other things, acids and vegetable sugars."

Beyond that, the cookbook will also feature "knowledgeable, humorous, and irreverent essays" written by both punk rockers and chefs. Steve Albini and Ian Svenonius will contribute from the punk side, while Gabrielle Hamilton, David Kinch, Christina Tosi, Barbara Lynch, Andrea Reusing, and more are slated for contributions from the chef side.
