We’ve discovered a golden ticket to creating a Michelin-starred restaurant. It’s The NoMad Cookbook, and it’s filled with snacks, appetizers, main courses and desserts from the New York City eatery that you can now make yourself. (Try not to eat these photos.)

So that just leaves the actual operations—you know, finding a location, hiring staff, continually executing perfect dishes and dealing with customers—but we’re confident you can handle that stuff.

The book’s available for preorder right now with an October 13 shipping date. So it’ll arrive too late for your annual Columbus Day jamboree, but beyond that, there’re all the real holidays coming up. Plus dinner parties, date nights and other reasons to get in the kitchen and impress someone. A roast chicken with black truffles, foie gras and brioche tends to do that.

And then, just when you begin to think that’s it, you’ll find the end of the book contains false pages that are, in fact, a hidden compartment housing a separate cocktail book filled with drink recipes from NoMad barman Leo Robitschek.

Surprise.
