Additional Details

Description: The American Bistro cookbook is a modern interpretation of the best dishes of America's past: a cuisine that's earthy, sophisticated, and multicultural all at once. The American bistro brings together the nation's traditional favorites and a growing interest in fresh, local ingredients and ethnic flavors. It is a bold, unpretentious cuisine that has made its way onto the menus of grills in San Francisco and cafes in New York, bistros in Los Angeles and trattorias in Chicago. 

Award-winning author Diane Worthington presents the best of this delicious new tradition in simple, unintimidating recipes for home cooks, busy people who want to eat and entertain well. Take that favorite staple -- a piece of chicken -- and transform it into a down-home Chicken Pot Pie with Parmesan-Cheddar Crust or give it an Indian twist with Grilled Citrus Chicken with Raita Sauce. Add a Southwestern accent to your table with Stir-fried Turkey and Vegetables with Avocado-Corn Salsa and Warm Corn Tortillas, or enjoy the flavor of the Northeast with Cornmeal-Crusted Soft-Shell Crabs with Lemon-Caper Sauce. 

Complete with a wine note from Anthony Dias Blue, American Bistro captures the gastronomic mood of the country and sets a new standard for dining at home, American style.
