Description: What does it mean to "cook with latitude"? For Dominique Macquet, "latitude" is a philosophical as well as a geographical state. It means having the. sense of adventure to experiment and the freedom and scope to seek out new flavors. For a chef raised in tropical latitudes, trained in South Africa, well versed in Latin and Asian cultures, schooled in California cuisine, and now settled in New Orleans, this sensibility produces the freshest globally inspired creations imaginable. Try Ahi Tuna and Crispy Pineapple Mille-Veuille with Soy-Ginger Vinaigrette (pictured on the front cover), Acquavit- and Citrus-Cured Salmon with Osetra Caviar and Wasabi Creme Fraiche, or a dessert like White Chocolate Bomb with Coconut Mousse Filling and Mango Coulis, and you'll see why legendary chef Jean-Louis Palladia calls Dominique's work "A fabulous tour of global cuisine!"
Owner of one of Bon Appetit's seven best new restaurants in the nation and named Chef of the Year by New Orleans magazine, Dominique is the brightest rising culinary star in the French Quarter. Join him on his "Latitude Adventure," as he combines the colorful lightness of tropical dishes, the spicy beat of Latin flavors, the subtlety of Asian cuisine, the complexity of French cooking, and the versatility of California style, resulting in some of the most unique and delicious recipes captured between the covers of a cookbook.
